About Alabama Partnership for Telehealth
Alabama Partnership for TeleHealth, Inc. (APT), a charitable nonprofit corporation, is an Alabama agency focused on increasing access to healthcare through the innovative use of technology. In collaboration with Global Partnership for TeleHealth and the federally funded Southeastern TeleHealth Resource Center, APT will strive to serve the citizens of Alabama by promoting and supporting new and existing telehealth programs across the state.
APT’s vision is to positively impact the health and quality of life of the citizens of Alabama through the innovative use of telehealth and telemedicine.
With the support of Governor Robert Bentley and Ron Sparks, Director of the Alabama Rural Development Office, APT will provide an opportunity for telehealth services to expand and provide greater access to healthcare to all of Alabama.
Serving as a physician governor gives me a unique perspective on the health problems facing Alabama. I have seen the impact that a shortage of providers can have on a rural community. I am committed to working with the provider community, stakeholders and insurers across the state to make the telemedicine effort a success.
– Robert Bentley, Governor of Alabama
