Alaska Comm Brings Teleheath Services to Kodiak Island Natives

  • Kodiak Area Native Association
ANCHORAGE, AL - Alaska Communications and Kodiak Area Native Association (KANA), a non-profit corporation providing health and social services for the Alaska Natives of the Koniag region, are working together to provide broadband telehealth services to improve healthcare for residents on Kodiak Island located in Southwest Alaska.

Alaska Communications has committed to provide the native healthcare organization with the broadband circuits to provide enhanced telehealth services to the association’s six village healthcare clinics. Telehealth services enable health care providers to consult remotely with patients and other providers. The services will help KANA’s healthcare clinics expand access to specialist services, such as mental health, cardiology and critical care experts – vital for patients and physicians in rural and remote areas like those on Kodiak Island.

Alaska Communications partnered with Old Harbor Native Corporation, one of Kodiak Island’s largest Native corporations, to deliver the broadband network that will enable telehealth services. Alaska Communications will also provide ongoing support for this network.
