As a federally funded program of the Indiana Rural Health Association (IRHA), the UMTRC provides a comprehensive set of telehealth clinical and technical assistance services leveraged into products of lasting value to rural providers. Many of the resources found on the website are related to reimbursement and development of sustainable telehealth programs. The UMTRC region encompasses the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio.
While UMTRC offers assistance to the public, per conditions of our federal grant, UMTRC is required to place a priority on providing technical assistance to Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) grantees in rural and under served areas interested in establishing or expanding a telehealth program including, but not limited to, Office of Advancement for Telehealth (OAT) Telehealth Network, Community Health Centers, and the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) grantees. Two tiers of assistance are available:
Tier 1: Call or email us any time to learn more about our program and discuss the telehealth landscape..
Tier 2: We provide each client up to 10 hours of free technical assistance per year. Requests for assistance can be submitted using our Contact Form, calling 855-283-3734, ext 238, or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For additional assistance beyond Tier 2: A client may wish to inquire about engaging the UMTRC for consultative services. If you are interested in additional assistance contact us using our Contact Form, calling 855-283-3734, ext 238, or emailing us at email@example.com.
