Telehealth has long been viewed as an important pathway for increasing access to care for underserved populations, while providing high quality care at low cost. The spread of telehealth in the United States, however, has been hampered by a range of reimbursement, equipment costs, and licensure barriers. In this study we examined the extent to which telehealth is being used in settings that are among the locations most in need: the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) approved grantee sites. Key Questions
- To what extent and how are NHSC using telehealth and telemedicine services?
- What are the barriers to adoption and expansion from the perspective of NHSC scholars and loan repayment participants?
- What contextual factors are associated with high and low use?
