LearnTelehealth.org is the website for the South Central Telehealth Resource Center. We pride ourselves in providing learning activities and materials to people interested in telehealth. The site is focused on giving telehealth users a virtual place to exchange ideas and information. It’s all about you the community of telehealth users. This website gives you a voice by providing the opportunity to ask questions, post comments and share and rate the effectiveness of our content. We are affiliated with the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Center for Distance Health.
Providers, administrators, students and lay people can find telehealth education that will help them cultivate and enrich their efforts in clinical telemedicine and distance education. Stay updated on the world of telehealth and telemedicine from formal certification courses (coming soon) in telehealth to challenging interactive learning modules, learners can gain useful knowledge and applications to benefit their own practices.

South Central Telehealth Resource Center
The South Central Telehealth Resource Center (SCTRC) serves Arkansas, Mississippi and Tennessee. It functions primarily through a new website that will work in partnership with the Center for Distance Health’s Training Center based at UAMS. The resource center website, www.learntelehealth.org, targets health care and health education groups that have an interest in using telehealth.
LearnTelehealth.org was also made possible by a grant from the Sustainable Broadband Adoption (SBA) Training Center grant project. This grant was through Connect Arkansas and focused on telehealth training and awareness in the state of Arkansas.
The SCTRC focuses on telehealth education and peer interactions online. The SCTRC also conducts hands-on training in its training center or on-site. Contact us if you’re interested in arranging a hands-on training session.
Telehealth Resource Centers
In 2006 the federal Office for the Advancement of Telehealth initiated a regional telehealth resource center grant program to provide support and guidance to telehealth programs. The Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) have a mission to serve as a focal point for advancing the effective use of telehealth and to support access to telehealth services in rural and underserved communities. The TRCs have extensive telehealth experience and can provide services, resources and tools to both developing and operating programs. Each TRC also has an understanding of regional concerns and the climate for telehealth in their geographic region. You will find many tools to assist your program on each of the TRC websites.
