Insights On Telemedicine From the 2014 ATA Fall Forum

If you have been around the telemedicine industry for a while then you are probably familiar with the American Telemedicine Association (ATA). This group, which is the largest advocacy organization in the world for the advancement in the use of Telehealth, serves thousands of members around the world.

Each year, the ATA hosts an event to bring together the industry’s top thinkers and the membership to learn about where the telemedicine industry is going, what stakeholders need to know, and of course for the opportunity to connect for a few days in real life.

At this years ATA event, the overarching theme was the use of telemedicine as a way to treat chronic conditions. Knowing that chronic conditions require a lot of ongoing attention, the successful use of telemedicine to treat chronic conditions could help meet a number of other ATA goals which include improved delivery of healthcare and reduced healthcare expense through the use of telemedicine.

In this Med City News article, you can see video clips from some of the sessions to get more insight on the conversations that were had at this year’s event.

We work side by side with organizations throughout the healthcare industry to simplify the implementation of technology that helps health care reach more patients in less time.
