The FCC’s Connect2Health Task Force recently released an interactive map of the country which maps broadband and health across the states. The data is revealing and shows how reliable broadband impacts healthcare through things like telehealth, which is on the rise. Telehealth applications are a major driver for broadband adoption. It’s mentioned and as point of discussion in the CVS / Aetna merger talks as well as a key reason for municipal broadband.

To be effective, it’s important to dig further into the details on what it will take to implement these telehealth services. For patients using the applications at home, there must be a secure service that allows residents to do so. Most likely, this would require HD voice and video conferencing, which means there should be a minimum of 50Mbps or more—this is 2x the speed of the minimum FCC requirement for broadband.

 Regional health clinics and hospitals need a secure, high capacity service that can connect them to larger healthcare systems and headquarters as well as their patients. In order to do this, they need a broadband speed of 100Mbps or more.

 Finally, the broadband and services must be reliable which means the end user (patient or healthcare provider) needs a consistent user experience with clearly defined SLA’s.
