The Richard G. Lugar Center for Rural Health has become recognized for its work in telehealth. The center first began utilizing technology to advance rural health in 1999, with a patented store-and-forward Telehealthcomputerized program called Ruralconsult.com. Since then, telehealth services at the Lugar Center have been further expanded through grant funding from the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT). The Wabash Valley Rural Telehealth Network was formally established in 2010 and has continually garnered national attention for its technological services that integrate evidence-based practice and provide patients with quality specialty care.
