Mount Sinai will use FCC grant to develop telehealth app

New York City-based Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital will use the $860,000 grant it received from the FCC to expand its remote care services, including the development of a telehealth app.

The grant, part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, will allow Mount Sinai to provide patients with a remote care app and more than 700 devices that ensure at-home access to its telehealth services.

"Through the RealTime Clinic app, we will be able to take telehealth one step further and integrate patient reported outcomes that give us a window into well-being," Eyal Shemesh, MD, said in a news release.

Dr. Shemesh, chief of Mount Sinai's division of developmental and behavioral pediatrics, pioneered outreach for the grant.
