From HealthCareDive August 2021
- The Biden administration has benchmarked more than $19 million in grants to expand telehealth in rural and underserved communities, which have continued to lack access to care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The investments will provide funding to train primary care providers, bolster groups providing virtual care, pilot new telehealth services and research the efficacy of digitally delivered care in rural geographies.
- The $19 million will be distributed to 36 awardees through the HHS Health Resources and Services Administration, the agency said Wednesday.
