NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS:
- A North Carolina hospital is pioneering the use of drones to speed up the delivery of critical medical samples across WakeMed Hospital's campus.
- In just the past few years, telehealth has gained some momentum, in part spurred by the opioid epidemic and an aging rural population.
The Upper Midwest Telehealth Resource Center (UMTRC) is a consortium of active telehealth organizations, headed by the Indiana Rural Health Association (IRHA) that provides a comprehensive set of telehealth clinical and technical assistance services within Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Ohio.
As a federally funded program, many of our services are provided at no charge.
