Type: MCSA
One major barrier to telehealth was removed with the passage of the Telecommunications Act of 1996. Which of
the following was the outcome of removing this major barrier?
1. Telecommunications carriers were required to provide cost-free Internet access to those in rural areas.
2. Telecommunications carriers must offer services to urban health providers at rates higher than those charged in
rural areas.
3. The act created the Agriculture Department's information Rural Development network.
4. Vendors of cable and telephone services were allowed to compete in each others' markets.
1996 allowed vendors of cable and telephone services to compete in each others' markets. This helped to open the
door to create the information superhighway needed to provide the framework to support telehealth. The Snowe—
Rockefeller Amendment required telecommunications carriers to offer services to rural health providers at rates
comparable to those charged in urban areas, not higher rates for rural areas, so that affordable health care could
become available to rural residents.
Rationale 3: The major barrier to telehealth that was removed with the passage of the Telecommunications Act of
1996 allowed vendors of cable and telephone services to compete in each others' markets. This helped to open the
door to create the information superhighway needed to provide the framework to support telehealth. A different
act, the Agriculture Department's 1991 Rural Development Act, laid the groundwork to bring the information
superhighway to rural areas for education and telehealth purposes.
Rationale 4: When the Telecommunications Act of 1996 allowed vendors of cable and telephone services to
compete in each others' markets, this helped to open the door to create the information superhighway needed to
provide the framework to support telehealth, removing one major barrier. The Snowe—Rockefeller Amendment
required telecommunications carriers to offer services to rural health providers at rates comparable to those
charged in urban areas so that affordable health care could become available to rural residents. The Agriculture
Department's 1991 Rural Development Act laid the groundwork to bring the information superhighway to rural
areas for education and telehealth purposes.
