Sen. Menendez, Robert

This bill will require the center for medicare and medicaid innovation to consider models that improve the integration of telehealth services in maternal health care. The bill also provides funding for technology-enabled collaborative learning to help develop and disseminate training for maternity care providers in underserved areas. Funding can be used to ensure access to high-speed, reliable internet access for grantees. Funding can also be used to study the use of new technologies in maternal health care that may prevent racial and ethnic biases from being built into maternity care innovations.
