ATA2023 Theme — Background: 

From Now What? To How To! The Vision and Realities of Telehealth Adoption

The new reality is that patients and providers alike want access to telehealth services for a range of healthcare interactions. As we reenter the ‘new normal’ and reimagine what healthcare will look like in the next year and beyond, the vision for sustainable telehealth is coming into focus.

ATA2023 will explore how to create the right systems, provide the right training and develop the right tools to entrench telehealth – once and for all – in our healthcare lexicon.

  • How are delivery systems going to deliver?
  • How will telehealth service providers create sustainable services?
  • How will DTC companies face growing competition and an evolving marketplace?     
  • Where will investors discover their next big discovery?
  • Will patients lose their patience waiting for safe, convenient and affordable care, whenever and wherever they need it?

The American Telemedicine Association (ATA), the premier organization focused on advancing telehealth, is convening like-minded and motivated stakeholders and decision-makers at ATA2023 to talk telehealth. This is not a healthcare conference dabbling in virtual care. ATA2023 is the telehealth conference that puts telehealth in its place – within a hybrid care delivery model.
