The Telehealth Resource Centers (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.
Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) have been established to provide assistance, education and information to organizations and individuals who are actively providing or interested in providing medical care at a distance. Our simple charter from the Office for Advancement of Telehealth is to assist in expanding of the availability of health care to underserved populations. And because we are federally funded, the assistance we provide is generally free of charge.
TRCs are funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office for the Advancement of Telehealth, which is part of the Office of Rural Health Policy.
