Telemedicine equipment is used throughout Georgia. The Georgia Partnership for Telehealth (GPT), a statewide non-profit telehealth network, reports that it has provided 130,000 patient encounters using 40 different specialties, as recently as 2013, and has the capacity to provide the same service to 106 of Georgia’s 159 counties. The Georgia Department of Community Health uses telemedicine equipment to provide services in some clinics throughout the state for patients on Medicaid. The Dougherty County Health Clinic uses telemedicine equipment to educate pregnant mothers about prenatal health and the birthing process. The clinic also uses equipment to diagnose and treat kids living with sickle cell anemia. The clinic has two units, one of which is mobile, and works with specialists in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. There are no set criteria for women and children to be treated or use the telemedicine services provided by the clinic. Current specialists are compensated using a patient’s private insurance carrier, Medicaid, PeachCare for Kids, or on a sliding scale.
