Grants to USA and Territories for-profits and nonprofits serving rural areas to operate telehealth services in underserved areas. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is also intended to evaluate the effectiveness of telehealth services.

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Evidence Based Telehealth Network Program (EB THNP). The two-fold purpose of this award is (1) to demonstrate how health networks can increase access to health care services utilizing telehealth technologies and (2) to conduct evaluations of those efforts to establish an evidence base for assessing the effectiveness of telehealth care for patients, providers, and payers.

For this NOFO, applicants must propose to provide DTC telehealth services to patients within established telehealth networks. This can be accomplished, in part, by identifying and partnering with local established health care facilities (especially primary care facilities) within the target service area, elevating the trusted patient-provider relationship, access, and quality of care directly to the patient via telehealth. Also, this service will allow for the expansion of access to care in Medically Underserved Areas (MUA) and primary care or mental health defined Health Professional Shortage areas (HPSA).

The EB THNP program presents the opportunity for network sites that are currently or have previously utilized telehealth as defined above to efficiently and effectively pilot and/or expand DTC telehealth care. Applicants for this EB THNP Program must utilize synchronous (real-time virtual visits) audio-visual technology and may include remote patient monitoring (RPM) to provide DTC telehealth care to patients.

This EB THNP program will expand access to health services in three clinical primary focus areas: (1) Primary Care, (2) Acute Care, and (3) Behavioral Health Care. In addition, applicants have the option to address one of the following secondary focus areas: Maternal Care, Substance Use Disorder, or Chronic Care Management.

Applicants are encouraged to include populations that have historically suffered from poorer health outcomes, health disparities, and other inequities, as compared to the rest of the rural population, when addressing health care needs via telehealth. Examples of these populations include, but are not limited to, racial and ethnic minorities, person/persons experiencing homelessness, pregnant women, disabled individuals, youth and adolescents, etc.
