Grants to USA and Territories nonprofit and public health care providers for connected care services and equipment to patients during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Applicants are advised that pre-registrations are required prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to support the provision of telecommunications, information services, and connected devices necessary to provide telehealth services to patients at their homes or mobile locations.
The COVID-19 Telehealth Program will only fund devices (e.g., pulse oximetry, blood pressure monitoring devices, etc.), that are themselves connected, and will not fund unconnected devices that patients can use at home and then manually report the results to their medical professional. Connected devices may include devices with Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity, including devices that connect to a consumer’s phone, for example.
Devices for which funding is requested must be integral to patient care. Examples of eligible services and connected devices that COVID-19 Telehealth Program applicants may seek funding for include:
