From ATA:
Over the past several weeks, the coronavirus pandemic has overburdened our healthcare systems and providers, as well as other stakeholders in the telehealth ecosystem. This national health emergency is expected to continue for the unforeseen future, putting telehealth in the spotlight as a critical solution that is shaping our response to this pandemic and helping to ‘flatten the curve.’ The ATA strongly believes that it’s more important than ever for our industry to come together, to share experiences, explore the opportunities and overcome the challenges of telehealth in this new reality. We are excited to re-imagine our annual conference and have proactively created as a dynamic, interactive and virtual experience!

From June 22-26, we’ll gather experts in telehealth and virtual care, and the decision-makers who are transforming care delivery and imbedding telehealth solutions into the fabric of today’s healthcare services.
