Novartis Provides Grant for Telemedicine Service

November 2nd, 2021

The Novartis US Foundation has awarded a grant of $4,000 to The Arc of Essex County to continue physician telemedicine service agreements for The Arc’s group homes.  

Telemedicine services brings both the health community and The Arc’s group home community of residents and staff effectively together in a supportive, familiar, and relaxed setting. Telemedicine doctors are immediately available when a medical issue arises. A secure video-conferencing system allows doctors to perform thorough exams and evaluations using sophisticated diagnostic tools. 

We thank the Novartis US Foundation for their support, and look forward to continuing this vital program, which allows our residents to receive more comfortable and convenient medical care through these services.
