Our 12 regional and 2 national TRCs are expertly staffed and lead the advancement and accessibility of telehealth with a focus in rural communities, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs). As a consortium, we are dedicated to helping organizations and practices overcome barriers, advance telehealth education, and provide resources.

The regional TRCs are experts in telehealth implementation. TRCs are equipped to provide technical assistance, education, and resources on various topics.

Our Vision

Telehealth has yet to meet its full potential. Telehealth has captured the attention of the healthcare field. Different methods of digital healthcare like mHealth, Remote Patient Monitoring, and Population Based Health are becoming widely used. The vision of the NCTRC is to connect health providers to people through telehealth, starting with rural communities. Our voice will remain consistent and comprehensive, delivering accurate information to help the nation through the growth of telehealth.
