LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Health Resources and Services Administration has renewed a grant to the South Central Telehealth Resource Center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences for telehealth education. The three-year grant totals $975,000, and marks the third time the HRSA has renewed its financial support since it supplied funding to establish the center in 2010. “This grant recognizes the value we are bringing to telehealth in the south central region, especially in teaching telehealth to underserved communities who are using it to get access to specialists beyond their local areas, as well as other health professionals they otherwise couldn’t reach,” said Sarah Rhoads, director of the SCTRC. The resource center, which serves Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee, focuses on providing telehealth education through its website, LearnTelehealth.org, which features custom videos, course modules, podcasts, blogs and other resources designed specifically for health care professionals interested in creating or expanding the use of telemedicine within their practices.
