How to offset your IT budget with FCC Program Funding

Webinar Overview

Government funding programs are available to healthcare providers, yet the majority of hospitals and systems don’t receive the funding level they qualify for – or they don’t participate at all.

This webinar will introduce you to the Healthcare Connect Fund and how you can maximize your funding support level. Solutions on how to manage the cumbersome process and tricks to maximize your savings will be shared with webinar participants.

  • You can cut your telecommunications budget by 65%
  • Funds can be used on network equipment and software
  • More than $594 million is available to healthcare providers to offset broadband expenses
