Indiana Rural Health Association Receives Funds for Telemedicine
The Indiana Rural Health Association received nearly $1 million in federal funds from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) to provide support for telemedicine efforts in the states of Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio; known as the Upper Midwest Telehealth Resource Center, the program will receive $325,000 annually for the next three years. Funds will be allocated to provide technical assistance and educational efforts for the expansion of telemedicine within these four states.
Continued telemedicine efforts are particularly crucial for more isolated, rural areas that lack sufficient clinical access. Read the full story, as published in the Tribune-Star (Terre Haute, IN), here.
