Telehealth Capitol Connection

The Telehealth Capitol Connection

To meet the growing interest in using telemedicine to improve health care delivery, ATA, with the briefing expertise and thought leadership of Neal Neuberger launched the Telehealth Capitol Connection (TCC), a bi-monthly briefing series for Congress, federal agencies, national organizations, and other interested stakeholders.

Upcoming Briefing:
Bridging the Gap: Connecting Rural Communities to Care 

Date: Wednesday, September 13, 2017 Time: 12:00 - 1:30 PM ET Location: Top of the Hill (located at 1 Constitution Ave NE, Washington, DC 20002)

Residents of rural areas face unique obstacles in health care coverage and access including provider shortages, limited insurance, and increased distance to quality care. Medicare plays a critical role in mitigating these challenges, and increasing access and convenience for medically underserved populations.
Join ATA in an engaging discussion on major gaps in rural telehealth coverage and rural health broadband needs. Attendees will hear from leadership from Lifepoint Hospitals, the National Rural Health Association, and TeleQuality Communications and learn the role of Medicare in rural areas, and how legislation like the HEART Act (H.R. 2291) can affect access among the occupying populations.
