Telehealth & Technology

The National Center for Telehealth and Technology (T2) is a component center of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) and part of the Military Health System (MHS). T2 was established as a DoD organization at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in 2008 from the Army Behavioral Health Technology Office (ABHTO) at Madigan Army Medical Center. T2 has an office in the National Capitol Region for coordination with DCoE and other DoD, VA and government agencies. 

The National Center for Telehealth & Technology is comprised of clinical psychologists, researchers, interactive designers, and technical specialists who develop behavioral health assessment, screening, reference, and treatment tools for the military community. 

Our mission is to lead the development of telehealth and technology solutions for psychological health and traumatic brain injury to improve the lives of the Nation’s Warriors, Veterans, and their Families. T2 seeks to identify, treat, and minimize or eliminate the short and long-term adverse effects of TBI and mental health conditions associated with military service. T2 partners with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other organizations throughout the world.

The National Center for Telehealth & Technology (T2) designs, builds, tests, and evaluates available and emerging technologies to deploy in support of psychological health and traumatic brain injury recovery in the military community. Equally important is our work toward eradicating stigma that can deter people in the military from seeking help.

Comprised of clinical and research psychologists, web developers, interactive designers, and technical specialists, T2 develops a range of web-, mobile- and Virtual Reality-based assessment, monitoring and treatment tools. T2 also conducts quality research to evaluate existing and emerging technologies for efficacy. MORE >
