The Four Corners Telehealth Consortium was formed among New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado to serve as a model for regional telehealth collaboration in the United States, unconstrained by geographical or jurisdictional barriers.
Representatives of telehealth and health information initiatives in the four states have been developing specific collaborative initiatives including:
- Establishment of an interstate licensure process;
- Coordination of a virtual "eHealth" University for distance learning;
- Coordination of provision of telehealth clinical services representing best practices; and
- A process for interstate disaster response.
