Telehealth Resource Centers

Organizations Funded to Help Build and Sustain Telehealth Programs
In 2006, the federal Office for the Advancement of Telehealth initiated a regional telehealth resource center grant program to provide support and guidance to telehealth programs. Several geographically dispersed Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) have been funded by the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT), Office of Health Information Technology (HIT), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). 

The five TRCs have a mission to serve as a focal point for advancing the effective use of telehealth and support access to telehealth services in rural and underserved communities. The TRCs have extensive telehealth experience and can provide services, resources and tools to both developing and operating programs. Each TRC also has an understanding of regional concerns and the climate for telehealth in its geographic region. Their websites offer many tools to assist in program development and success.
