Peach State Health Plan has a relationship with Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth (GPT). The Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth (GPT) works to improve the availability and provision of specialized health care services in rural and underserved parts of Georgia through the use of telemedicine, health information exchange and TeleHealth technologies. The program’s goal is to enable all rural Georgians to access specialty care within 30 mile of their homes.
The Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth has become one of the most robust, comprehensive telemedicine networks in the nation. Recent expansion has included nursing homes, school-based clinics, jails, clinics and emergency rooms. The network now has more than 350 partners and locations and more than 175 specialists and health care providers. Providing access to health care via telemedicine has proven to cut costs on travel, work time and provides earlier access to care therefore preventing the large costs of untreated health care problems.
