Three Ex-Senators Working Together To Promote Tele-Medicine.

The New York Times (5/21, Hulse, Subscription Publication) reports that three ex-Senators, Republican Trent Lott and Democrats Tom Daschle and John B. Breaux, are working together “to push an expansion of tele-medicine as a way to improve health care access and cut costs.” On behalf of the Alliance for Connected Care, “a nonprofit collection of health care” professionals, “insurers, pharmacies, technology firms and telecommunications companies,” the three men are pursuing “legislative and regulatory changes to let more Americans essentially get much of their health care remotely.”
