Help patients with the greatest need, but most limited access to care.

Global Telehealth Network (GTN) is a nonprofit organization that connects an international network of volunteer physicians with doctors and nurses in medically underserved areas who encounter patients with difficult problems.

Health workers located in remote areas in the U.S. or throughout the world can obtain free, real-time audio and video consults with GTN’s physician volunteers – without anyone having to travel.

How GTN works

  • When health workers on the ground need help, they enter their findings in the patients’ electronic health records, log in to GTN’s website, upload their consultation requests and indicate the degree of urgency.

  • GTN’s software algorithm can evaluate data points regarding the patient and health worker and match them with the most appropriate physician volunteer who can be available at the required time.

  • Through use of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the algorithm will continually improve its ability to provide optimal matches.
