The Alaska Federal Healthcare Access Network (AFHCAN) offers a diagnostic “store and forward” telehealth platform with the ability to create a telemedicine case with textual information and data from biomedical peripherals, and send data for consultation. Health care professionals are able to view the data and respond to the case using a standard PC workstation.

First and foremost, AFHCAN continues to evolve and expand its services where the number of users and clinical services has grown significantly over the years. Through growing acceptance of telehealth, more than 700 users in Alaska continually provide feedback and request new products and features. As a part of its mission, AFHCAN continues to review, develop, and deploy new telehealth technologies.

The AFHCAN system provides an innovative approach to ease of use, mobility, support for widely varying clinical workflows, and a robust communication platform.
