We are excited to announce that the Center for Disability Services and The ARC of Rensselaer County have been awarded a grant through New York State’s Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program! This will help us further enhance Center Health Care’s services to offer Telemedicine Alternatives to the Emergency Room and Urgent Care specialized for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities who live in Center and ARC Residences. With this grant money, the Center will be able to acquire telemedicine equipment for each Center and ARC house. The platform will enable direct access to telemedicine services as well as insuring patient privacy in compliance with HIPAA. . More details to follow!
