HAZARD, Ky. (May 20, 2022) —The University of Kentucky Center of Excellence in Rural Health (UK CERH) will host the 2022 Kentucky Rural Telehealth Summit on Thursday, June 9 at the Embassy Suites on Newtown Pike in Lexington.
The one-day event will be held in person. It will include sessions on a range of telehealth-related topics, including billing, coding and compliance; clinician training on technology use; legal and regulatory concerns; overcoming broadband challenges; remote patient monitoring; school-based telehealth; telehealth’s competitive landscape; the hospital at home care model; the importance of facility-based telehealth services; and the “pioneers” and “settlers” of telehealth.
“We are fortunate to have a dedicated group of telehealth experts from across the Commonwealth that has come together to plan this important day,” said UK CERH Director Fran Feltner, DNP. “Telehealth has evolved rapidly in the last two years.

About the UK Center of Excellence in Rural Health: The University of Kentucky Center of Excellence in Rural Health was established by state legislation in 1990 to address health disparities in rural Kentucky and the unique challenges faced by our communities. The mission was and still is today to improve the health and wellbeing of rural Kentuckians. For more than three decades, the Center has partnered with communities, providers, students and individuals to provide health professions education, health policy research, health care service and community engagement toward reaching this mission.
As the state’s flagship, land-grant institution, the University of Kentucky exists to advance the Commonwealth. We do that by preparing the next generation of leaders — placing students at the heart of everything we do — and transforming the lives of Kentuckians through education, research and creative work, service and health care. We pride ourselves on being a catalyst for breakthroughs and a force for healing, a place where ingenuity unfolds. It's all made possible by our people — visionaries, disruptors and pioneers — who make up 200 academic programs, a $476.5 million research and development enterprise and a world-class medical center, all on one campus.
In 2022, UK was ranked by Forbes as one of the “Best Employers for New Grads” and named a “Diversity Champion” by INSIGHT into Diversity, a testament to our commitment to advance Kentucky and create a community of belonging for everyone. While our mission looks different in many ways than it did in 1865, the vision of service to our Commonwealth and the world remains the same. We are the University for Kentucky.
