How it works
Rural communities, nursing homes, and other healthcare institutions that could use better access to medical care sign up with FreeState Connect for a small monthly fee. FreeState Connect sends out telemedicine equipment and trains staff at the site. Once the relevant licensure/credentialing paperwork is completed, service begins. FreeState Connect doctors see adults and children, and offer outpatient, inpatient, and Emergency Department care if needed. We offer a variety of specialties.
