The purpose of the TRCGP is to support the establishment and development of Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs). The TRCGP expects to create centers of excellence that expedite and customize the provision of telehealth technical assistance across the country, while at the same time working together to make available a wide range of expertise that might not be available in any one region. The TRCs provide technical assistance to health care organizations, health care networks, and health care providers in the implementation of cost-effective telehealth programs to serve rural and medically underserved areas and populations. The program seeks entities with proven successful records in providing technical assistance in the development of sustainable telehealth programs This funding will support up to five Regional TRCs (RTRCs) serving as focal points for advancing the effective use of telehealth technologies in their respective communities and regions for clinical care. In addition, this funding will support one National TRC (NRTRC). The National TRC will focus on policy issues such as: physician and nurse licensure, credentialing and privileging, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, and private insurance payment policies in the context of telehealth. The National TRC must demonstrate experience with policy issues at the state, local and national levels. In addition, the National TRC will work with the RTRCs to support their efforts. It is the goal of OAT to have every state covered by a TRC. In this funding cycle, OAT seeks applicants to provide coverage for the following states: Arkansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Hawaii, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri.

TRCs shall utilize grant funds to: provide technical assistance, training, and support, for health care providers and a range of health care entities (including HRSA grantees) that provide or will provide telehealth services; disseminate information and research findings related to telehealth services; promote effective collaboration among telehealth resource centers and OAT; conduct evaluations to determine the best utilization of telehealth technologies to meet health care needs; promote the integration of the technologies used in clinical information systems with other telehealth technologies; foster the use of telehealth technologies to provide health care information and education for health care providers and consumers in a more effective manner; and implement special projects or studies under the direction of OAT.
