Defined as a collection of methods for enhancing healthcare, public health, and health education delivery and support using telecommunications technologies, by the Center for Connected Health Policy, Telehealth encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tactics to deliver virtual medical, health, and education services. And Telehealth isn’t simply a niche of a few—the technology driving this evolution has become more affordable, easier to use, and more widespread. As states increasingly adopt telehealth as a caregiving solution, value-based care is transforming.
Join the Transformation – Telehealth 2.0
Telehealth certainly has legs for the future, but it’s an important tool today. As described by the ATA, telehealth and telemedicine are largely interchangeable, although telehealth may not always involve clinical care. Regardless of how you refer to it, telemedicine significantly improves the quality, equity, and affordability of healthcare throughout the world. By the end of this year, nearly 2 million patients will use this solution.
Most patients using telehealth services—such as digital monitoring services that track your disease markers and vital signs—do so after a hospital stay. These options help prevent relapse without the need for the patient to travel post-op or post-health event. Global health care providers followed more than 300,000 patients in 2012 through telehealth services, monitoring conditions from congestive heart failure to mental health.
Analyst reports predict these services will skyrocket, with a 500% uptick in telehealth services in the coming year.
See Speakers Who Understand Telehealth’s Impact
Speakers at the event range from Carlos Santana, founder of the Milagro Foundation and famed musician, to Patrick Kennedy, politician and healthcare advocate. Each speaker offers a unique perspective of how telehealth is transforming medicine.
ATA 2017, also called “Telehealth 2.0 The Transformation Advantage,” explores how telehealth is rewriting the rules for the healthcare industry. One of the goals of the conference is to explore competitive and cost-effective advantages for healthcare professionals and others in the industry who are engaging in these best practices.
Know What to Expect at ATA 2017
The event promises to deliver interactive sessions on advancing healthcare, medicine, and overall wellness.

Understand Compliance, the Cloud, and Tech Solutions
This conference is the only place to be for those who provide healthcare business solutions. Mobile and telemedicine providers are looking to outsource technologies. Cloud computing offers a solution, especially with its flexibility, but must also meet strict compliance criteria when handling healthcare’s private patient data. Data centers play a crucial role in compliance, maintaining confidentially, accessibility, and the integrity of health information. Telehealth providers need comprehensive solutions to address the evolving threat landscape and to avoid penalties that would result from noncompliance.
Watch for Changes to a Standard Industry
For decades, healthcare has maintained the same practices that often make getting well harder for patients. Gone are the days of house calls, but specialized and particular care provided is more in demand than ever before. We don’t often praise technology for its ability to improve human contact and make the world more personalized, but that’s precisely what telehealth is about.
Medical professionals who practice telehealth can offer insight into the changing dynamic of medicine, but anyone invested in how technology is changing the world for the better should attend this conference. Best practices can be explored and applied across industries, making telehealth an example of how some services can be provided in better, more customized ways.
