Welcome to Pacific Basin Telehealth Resource Center!
The PBTRC will provide telehealth technical assistance and program support for the Pacific Basin. The PBTRC will advance the development, implementation, and integration of telehealth through:
• Sharing information
• Leveraging resources
• Empowering cultural diversity and creating a synergistic telehealth community
The Pacific Basin is a region with unique characteristics and challenges, including a vast geographic area the size of the continental United States. The region is characterized by diverse cultures, limited resources, varying levels of infrastructure, and differing needs. There is a common thread, however, connecting the US affiliated Pacific Islands to Hawai`i. In addition to regional cultural ties, there is a long history of collaboration between the entities treating each other as “Ohana” or family.
