Taking Telehealth to the Next Level Nationally: Telehealth Centers of Excellence

Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC)

In early October 2017, the Health and Human Services Department’s Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced that two health systems would be designated as the nation’s first Telehealth Centers of Excellence: the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC). The primary purpose of HRSA’s new program is to examine the effectiveness of telehealth services in rural and urban areas via public academic medical centers.
