Carts used to support the application and implementation of telehealth that are used by hospital staff to improve operational efficiencies are an allowable use of SHIP funds.
Training crash carts that allow for continuous staff training to improve clinical care are an allowable use of SHIP funds. Examples of allowable training crash carts would be code blue simulation training carts.
