Public Policy

One of ATA's driving missions is to educate government about telemedicine to improve public support for telehealth services. As the voice of telemedicine, ATA is recognized throughout the world as the primary authority about telemedicine and actively works with Congress, the administration as well as with other governmental bodies to eliminate barriers to the use of telemedicine.  

Below is a list of policy activities, organized by topic. You may also want to review, ATA's public policy wiki for continually updated information on a variety of telehealth policy issues.
