Sacramento, California - Continuing his historic commitment to expand broadband network access across California, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today announced a $22 million grant award to the California Telehealth Network by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). "As we move forward this year with comprehensive health care reform, using technology is a major component in improving patient care. By expanding broadband networks for telemedicine, we can connect the best medical experts to clinics in remote areas of the state. It's critical that California continues to lead the way with this technology, which shows how we can save time, money and most importantly, we can save lives," said Governor Schwarzenegger.
