Karna implements telemedicine for Opiate Addiction Treatment
Atlanta, Georgia, January 15, 2019 -- Karna has secured a contract and has begun work on a telehealth pilot with a national outpatient treatment organization which has focused for more than 10 years on helping people suffering from dependence to heroin, pain medication, and other opiates. As part of the project, Karna will make recommendations on technology and develop trainings and processes by which treatment visits can be done through secure video and audio connections. Karna's experience applying technologies to managing the health of specific populations is a cornerstone of this work. The telemedicine solution will be evaluated, improved and is expected to rollout nationwide after a successful pilot.
