At gpTRAC (Great Plains Telehealth Resource and Assistance Center), we have a four-part mission: build telehealth awareness, promote education, provide individualized consultation, and provide data specific to telehealth services in our region. We promote healthcare services that take advantage of modern telecommunications technologies such as interactive videoconferencing, secure Internet transactions, and home health monitoring.

While we focus on solving healthcare delivery problems for rural providers and their patients, we work with clinics of all sizes and locations to help solve problems of access to and quality of care using telehealth applications. We can also help health organizations navigate other challenging areas in telehealth, including legal concerns, regulatory issues, appropriate technology, the implementation process, and financial issues.
