Welcome to the Southeastern Telehealth Resource Center (SETRC) Website

The SETRC is one of 14 Telehealth Resource Centers ( 12 Regional and 2 National) funded by the federal Office for the Advancement of Telehealth through a grant program to provide support and guidance to Telehealth programs. Our mission is to serve as a focal point for advancing the effective use of Telehealth and support access to Telehealth services in rural and under served communities in the southeastern region of the United States. We have extensive Telehealth experience and can provide services, resources and tools to both developing and operating programs.

The Southeastern Telehealth Resource Center's role is meant to be complementary to the activities of telemedicine programs in the Southeast. SETRC provides the basis for widespread application of educational and clinical support services and technical advances that have been studied and successfully implemented at Georgia Partnership for Telehealth and its partner sites.
