The PBTRC’s goal is to assist in the development of existing and new telehealth networks and offer education, training, strategic planning and background information regarding telehealth technology, medical information technology infrastructure, mobile health applications, and telehealth creation, growth and maintenance.

The region covered by the PBTRC includes the state of Hawaii, the US territories of Guam and American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the freely associated states of the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia. This region faces unique challenges to healthcare access including major geographic isolation and separation by ocean, extremely high costs of travel and telecommunications, small island populations, differing political and cultural environments, and a critical shortage of both primary and specialty care.
