What We Do
Great Plains Telehealth Resource and Assistance Center (gpTRAC) helps healthcare providers develop and implement telehealth programs. We provide support and advice to facilities and organizations as they establish or expand their telehealth programs. We serve Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.
We work to advance telehealth program development by offering resources to healthcare providers and organizations interested in telehealth and telemedicine. Our mission is to improve access to quality healthcare through technology.
gpTRAC is one of several regional telehealth resource centers funded through a federal grant from the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth—part of the Health Resources and Services Administration, which is an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
The Office for the Advancement of Telehealth was created to help meet the health needs of underserved people, including those in rural and remote areas, those with low incomes and no insurance, or those enrolled in Medicaid, by expanding the availability of telehealth technologies.
