PCC has been an invaluable partner in our Telehealth implementation. PCC was there with advice pre and post purchase, aided in installation, along with training of staff on how to use and troubleshoot minor issues. Additionally, the cost savings through the SC broadband consortium led by PCC has been a great savings that has allowed for investment in other areas, ultimately leading to better care for our patients.
