AltaMed didn’t have much time to build infrastructure for COVID test sites
The community healthcare organization had 4 days to turn an empty lot into a space where their providers could function as if they were in a clinic. The biggest challenge was delivering connectivity.
AT&T retail trucks were positioned in the parking lot testing sites and used as mobile hot spots. Thanks to the ready connectivity, medical personnel in the temporary clinics have all the bandwidth they need, serving hundreds of patients a day.
FirstNet, the national broadband network built by AT&T for first responders, provided highly secure mobile connectivity by parking an AT&T truck equipped with Wi-Fi hotspots at an AltaMed testing sight in a disadvantaged neighborhood.
