Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas, visited the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University on May 1st, 2018 to hold a town hall meeting and tour the two year old medical campus. While on his tour, Governor Hutchinson spent some time learning about the telemedicine curriculum and technology being used to train the 1st and 2nd year medical students.
Currently, NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University is the only medical school in the country, that has integrated telemedicine into the 1st and 2nd year physician curriculum. And, the telemedicine company chosen to provide the technology for their education, is Innovator Health.
Innovator Health's life-size, eye contact and low bandwidth solutions, were so well received by Governor Hutchinson, that he wrote a letter of support for their expanded use.
