Telehealth Center of Excellence

UMMC has been a leader in telehealth for over a decade. In 2017, we were recognized as one of only two federally designated Centers of Excellence in Telehealth. With this designation we are tasked by the Health Resources and Services Administration to explore innovative ways to advance the modern practice of telemedicine. The UMMC Center for Telehealth serves as a national clearinghouse for telehealth research and resources.

The goal of this site is to:

  • Publicize, circulate, broadcast, and publish evidence-based materials.
  • Address practitioner questions regarding telemedicine.
  • Offer guidance determined by best practices of telehealth.
  • Provide research statistics/facts/finds promoting use of telemedicine and telehealth.

Program Director's Welcome

UMMC has been a leader in telehealth for over a decade, and in 2017, was recognized as one of only two federally designated Centers of Excellence in Telehealth. With this designation we are tasked by the Health Resources and Services Administration to explore innovative ways to advance the modern practice of telemedicine. In Mississippi we face great challenges in rurality and healthcare disparities, but have been successful in leveraging the connections afforded by technology to improve the lives of our citizens through our telehealth programs. UMMC’s work to date clearly demonstrates the value of this technology-enabled health care in rural and underserved communities.
