Center for Health and Technology
"Telemedicine has proven to be a viable solution in addressing the health care needs of underserved populations. Although telecommunications and information technology have the power to overcome many disparities in health care, they are not being used to their full potential.
Our goal is to provide an education center where practitioners, administrators, managers, and telemedicine coordinators can develop the skills and knowledge needed to enhance the quality of health care in their communities."
