• About Us



As the only organization completely focused on advancing telehealth, the ATA is committed to ensuring that everyone has access to safe, affordable, and appropriate care when and where they need it, enabling the system to do more good for more people.

We represent a broad and inclusive member network of leading healthcare delivery systems, academic institutions, technology solution providers and payers, as well as partner organizations and alliances, working to advance industry adoption of telehealth, promote responsible policy, advocate for government and market normalization, and provide education and resources to help integrate virtual care into emerging value-based delivery models.

Principles of Practice: Telehealth as an Imperative Modality of Care

The ATA believes we have an important opportunity – and an obligation – to better inform the public, patients, consumers and clinicians, payers, policymakers and other stakeholders about the benefits of telehealth, and to create an evidence base for the appropriate and effective use of telehealth in any clinical discipline.

Paramount to this effort is to establish and maintain underlying principles of trust, transparency and outcomes-based care. These principles, developed by the ATA’s Clinician Council, inform the work of the ATA in driving policy, collaborating with other organizations, and establishing expectations with current and prospective members.
