As a federally funded program, our purpose is to assist health care providers with the implementation of successful telehealth programs and to help patients locate telehealth services and have a positive experience using telehealth. The mapping application AppGeo built for us using Google products is an innovative tool and a huge benefit to those we serve in our large region covering AK, ID, MT, OR, UT, WA, and WY.

The Northwest Regional Telehealth Resource Center (NRTRC) engaged AppGeo to build an online, interactive, mapping application to help patients in a seven state region to locate healthcare providers who offer both in-person and telehealth services near them. AppGeo built the telehealth locator application using Google Cloud Platform and Google Maps Platform to deliver high performance and ease of use.

AppGeo helped NRTRC determine the core application requirements, and then led application development, testing and deployment. Users can now access details of locations and contact information of the facilities that offer healthcare services including telehealth and in-person services, and have the ability to filter and search by location, health specialty or types of service.
