Telehealth Focused Rural Health Research Center Cooperative Agreement

This announcement solicits applications for the Telehealth Focused Rural Health Research Center (RHRC) Cooperative Agreement.  The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to increase the amount of publically available, high quality, impartial, clinically-informed and policy-relevant research related


to telehealth.   This research will assist rural health providers and decision-makers at the Federal, state and local levels by contributing to the policy-relevant evidence base of telehealth services.  The awardee will provide information that includes, but is not limited to, the impact of telehealth services in rural and underserved communities on access to health care, population health, health care spending (both for payers and for the patients receiving the services), quality of care, home health, and clinical delivery of care.

 This would also include studies assessing the comparative effectiveness of specific telehealth services relative to in-person services in the same clinical area.

The award provided through the Telehealth Focused Rural Health Research Center Cooperative Agreement is designed to provide support for a four-year research center with a specific concentration on telehealth.  It is intended to provide infrastructure to support telehealth services researchers as they explore the complexities of telehealth issues.  The cooperative agreement excludes biomedical research.
