Perhaps in no other area has technology had as profound an impact as in health care. The 2015 MATRC Telehealth Summit will explore how the partnership of human innovation and technological advancements is both shaping and transforming the future of healthcare. Join us as we take a closer look at the role of telehealth in a world that is moving from a traditional encounter based model of care that rewards volume to a new value-based, data-driven, patient-centered care model that rewards improved patient and population-based health outcomes.
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.
