This Telehealth Classroom training portal has been developed by the federally funded Northeast Telehealth Resource Center (NETRC), to assist regional stakeholders, including health systems, health centers, and providers to successfully implement telehealth.


The NETRC team has over a decade of expertise in developing evidence-based training and education resources - from the basics all telehealth programs need, such as technology assessment, reimbursement, and workflows, to customized curricula for specific use cases (e.g. Telehealth for Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery Services) and provider groups (e.g. social work, nursing, etc.).


The NETRC works with partners across the northeast and beyond to identify key needs, and develop high quality, open access training resources to help meet those needs.

Telehealth Training is Key

Telehealth is not a new specialty or service, rather a tool in every provider's toolbox, which can be leveraged to increase access to quality care via a variety of modalities. While we've seen significant growth in telehealth utilization across the U.S. over the past decade, the COVID-19 pandemic prompted an explosion in telehealth overnight, and identified a clear need for access to high quality training resources for the healthcare workforce of today, and tomorrow.


While technology is a core component of your telehealth program, PEOPLE are the most vital asset, and ensuring they are well trained will help drive its success and growth over time.
