Modern Healthcare

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger officially launched the California Telehealth Network on Tuesday at the UC Davis Cancer Center in Sacramento.

In a news briefing, Schwarzenegger lumped the telecommunications network’s development in with construction of bridges, highways and other concrete-and-steel projects included in his administration’s $60 billion infrastructure development program, but he also pointed to the special role information technology plays in saving lives and improving public health.
