The 12 Regional Telehealth Resource Centers (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 a total of 14 TRCs—12 Regional Centers and two National Centers.
The fourteen members of the National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers, twelve regional and two national centers, provide telehealth information and resources for policymakers, health care providers, and interested organizations nationwide. With the exception of Hawaii and California, each TRC's region includes several states.
The TRC Consortium frequently collaborates on policy fact sheets and issue briefs, such as the Telehealth Definition Framework, to educate decision makers and the public on telehealth-related issues. With the exception of Hawaii and California, each TRC’s region includes several states. In January 2016, the Consortium released a ten year report, chronicling the history of the TRCs and highlighting the wide range of services they have provided in advancing telehealth.
All members of the Consortium are federally funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office for the Advancement of Telehealth.
