FCC ANNOUNCES AGENDA FOR BROADBAND HEALTH TECHNOLOGY

EVENTS IN OHIO AND MICHIGAN

Focus on Broadband Inclusion, Health Disparities, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Washington, D.C. - The FCC's Connect2Health Task Force (C2HFCC Task Force) will travel to Ohio

and Michigan on October 26-28, 2015, for a series of events focused on leveraging broadband technology

to help reduce health disparities and on identifying opportunities to further encourage innovation and

entrepreneurship in the broadband health technology space. The various broadband health events and

activities will be hosted and/or co-sponsored by Cleveland Clinic, Allied Media Projects, the Global

Center for Health Innovation, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS)

Innovation Center, Henry Ford Innovation Institute, TechTown Detroit, and Wayne State University.

The scheduled fora, meetings and site visits are part of the Task Force's 'Beyond the Beltway Series' on

promoting the transformative power of broadband technologies and next-generation services to improve

access to health care services regardless of geography, time, distance, or socio-economic factors.

As demonstrated in prior Task Force Beyond the Beltway events, broadband connectivity can serve as the

backbone of a new, more effective and efficient health

and

care ecosystem. Ohio and Michigan are key

focus states in this context, with significant health disparities and connectivity gaps. According to the

2014 Census Bureau's American Community Survey, 20% of households in Ohio and Michigan report no

broadband connection at home. In the urban centers of Cleveland and Detroit, the percentage of

households without high speed Internet connectivity increases to 34% and 38%, respectively.

Detailed registration and event information, as well as a tentative trip agenda, are provided below.
