Telehealth Resource Centers
The purpose of the Telehealth Resource Centers (TRC) is to assist health care organizations, health care networks, and health care providers in the implementation of cost-effective telehealth programs to serve rural and medically underserved areas and populations. Regional TRCs serve as a focal point for advancing effective use of telehealth technologies in their respective communities and regions of the nation.
The two national TRCs provides a mechanism for sharing experiences across the nation in addressing legal and regulatory barriers to the effective implementation of telehealth technologies. Although each Resource Center specializes in providing services to organizations within their primary service area, the TRCs are committed to working in a collaborative effort to share their resources and expertise to service areas outside of their own regions.
The Telehealth Resource Centers are supported through the Telehealth Resource Center Grant Program, which is administered by the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
