HHS Invests $8 Million to Address Gaps in Rural Telehealth through the Telehealth Broadband Pilot Program

HHS awarded $8 million to fund the Telehealth Broadband Pilot (TBP) program. This program is designed to assess the broadband capacity available to rural health care providers and patient communities to improve their access to telehealth services. NRHA is excited about this pilot program as the need for reliant broadband has become more important as telehealth becomes a more common form of care.
