Telehealth Technology-Enabled Learning Program
The Telehealth Technology-Enabled Learning Program (TTELP) provides funding to connect specialists at academic medical centers with primary care providers of rural, frontier, and underserved populations, providing evidence-based training and support to help them treat patients with complex conditions in their communities.
TTELP objectives include:
- Identifying and expanding current and new learning community programs with a focus on one or more of the following: infectious diseases, mental health, substance use disorders, prenatal and maternal health, chronic diseases, and pediatric care
- Developing freely accessible tools and resources to support planning and implementation of learning community programs
- Identifying and addressing healthcare disparities for rural, frontier, and underserved populations
- Implementing cost-effective learning community programs to serve rural populations
Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes and health disparities as compared to the rest of the rural population, including racial and ethnic minorities, people experiencing homelessness, pregnant women, disabled individuals, and youth/adolescents.
Eligible applicants include domestic public or private, nonprofit or for-profit entities with demonstrated and established experience in utilizing telehealth technologies to serve rural underserved populations. This includes faith-based organizations, community-based organizations, federally recognized tribes, and tribal organizations.
