Alaska Communications (NASDAQ:ALSK), a provider of broadband and other wire line and wireless solutions, will provide managed network and videoconferencing services under a new, three-year agreement signed with the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association (ASHNHA) for the Alaska Rural Telehealth Network (ARTN), it disclosed on Wednesday.

Pursuant to this agreement, the company will provide services to the small, rural and remote hospitals and clinics' network in Alaska, the Alaska State Hospital and Nursing Home Association (ASHNHA).

ASHNHA provides specialty physicians and healthcare through telemedicine services to its six member hospitals and clinics, designed to serve over 50% of Alaska's rural and remote population.

The company under the agreement will provide transport for imaging and tele-radiology, videoconferencing, Internet, voice over Internet and other services to ARTN's members, permitting member hospitals and clinics to connect patients to healthcare providers, even when a doctor or specialist is not available on site.

Additionally, the services provided help ARTN's workers in the rural clinics with an ongoing distance education.
