New AHA Center for Telehealth to Increase Access to Care and Improve Delivery

The American Heart Association Center for Telehealth was unveiled to provide a solution to close gaps in health care access, particularly in rural and underserved areas, and deliver quality care to populations that have little to no access to traditional health care providers or facilities.

Made possible by a $15.9 million grant from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, the AHA Center for Telehealth will provide telehealth education and resources through collaboration with the telehealth community. The center will provide evidence-based education about telehealth, telehealth certification for health care professionals, and deliver solutions that maximize telehealth access. Read more.
