About This Issue

The New York MS Coalition Action Network supports efforts by New York State to enhance the availability of telehealth and telemedicine. Access to quality health services is a major concern for people living with multiple sclerosis. This is especially true of those living in rural areas of New York. Technology can bring cutting edge health care to any location, help reduce and prevent medication errors, and reduce hospitalizations of patients suffering from chronic diseases. Increased use of telehealth/telemedicine will increase access to quality health care services throughout the state while addressing the rising cost of Medicaid in New York.
