About Florida Partnership for TeleHealth
Florida Partnership for TeleHealth, Inc. (FPT) is a charitable nonprofit corporation with a focus on increasing access to healthcare through the innovative use of technology. In collaboration with Georgia Partnership for TeleHealth, Georgia’s highly successful nonprofit state-wide TeleHealth network, FPT will strive to serve the citizens of Florida by promoting and supporting new and existing telehealth programs across the state.
FPT realizes that telehealth can be used to increase access to quality care and has the potential to reduce costly medical interventions such as emergency room utilization and length of hospital stay. FPT is dedicated to advancing telehealth use and telemedicine by developing a network of partners who together will deliver quality healthcare using innovative technology to meet needs that are currently not being met.
FPT’s Mission is to:
