About Us

The American Board of Telehealth is driven to be the leader in telemedicine education. Our goal is to weave telemedicine into the fabric of health care delivery across the country as a vital tool in promoting access to quality care no matter where you are. We will achieve this by developing high-quality, evidence-based education in the practice of telemedicine.

As telehealth services become more common and accessible to patients, we will offer providers standardized training to teach them how to appropriately and effectively provide telehealth services.

The American Board of Telehealth was established in 2019 by Avera Health through funding from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust to develop a first-of-its-kind national telehealth certification program. In 2021, ABT management transitioned to the American Heart Association, a leading provider of healthcare professional education and quality certification in the U.S. and globally.
