Welcome to the Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers
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 health care at a distance. Our simple charter from the Office for Advancement of Telehealth is to assist in expanding 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.
Nationally, there are 14 TRCs: twelve Regional Centers, all with different strengths and regional expertise, and two National Centers, which focus on areas of technology assessment and Telehealth policy. While twelve of the TRCs have a regional focus, all TRCs participate as a consortium to provide information and assistance to all requests. That means that if your regional TRC can’t answer your question, the national consortium can. The TRCs are listed below. Each listing gives the region covered and contact information for each of the TRCs. You can click on the TRC name to be taken to their website for further information.
Along with links to the individual TRCs, this website provides additional information to assist in the planning and development of telehealth networks.
