GlobalMed OK’d for DoD Networks

by Mike Hunter

Scottsdale-based GlobalMed, an international provider of telehealth solutions, has earned the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Authority to Operate (ATO) on DoD networks for its industry leading virtual health platform. GlobalMed is the first provider of HIPAA-compliant clinical video collaboration to obtain an ATO. This much-coveted certification enables GlobalMed to put its virtual health applications, hardware and software directly on the DoD network, making its solutions available to the DOD’s integrated healthcare system known as the Military Health System. In addition to providing medical care in combat situations and at bases overseas (as well as on ships), the system has 57 hospitals and 400 clinics.

Like the VA, the military’s health facilities cannot accommodate the demand for care by all active-duty service people, their dependents, and retirees (many of whom are not eligible for VA services). Telehealth is proving to be a cost-effective solution.
