Key policy barriers preventing further expansion of telemedicine will be discussed at the first annual ATA Policy Summit on July 27th jointly sponsored by ATA and the Continua Health Alliance. This information packed Summit focusing on federal telehealth policy will be held at the Westin Washington D.C. City Center.
This unique Summit will identify and discuss the swift changes underway in healthcare delivery and how this can affect and provide many opportunities in the field of telemedicine. Top speakers in the field will participate and share their thoughts on how the challenges and opportunities of health reform will enable telemedicine to play a much bigger role in the near future.
Some of the most knowledgeable speakers in the field such as Richard Gilfillan MD, Acting Director for the CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation, Bakul Patel, Director for the Center for Devices and Radiological Health at FDA, and Adam Darkins, MD, Chief Consultant for VHA will share their thoughts on the many issues that need to be addressed and how to achieve the solutions that work. Other speakers will be announced shortly.
