Telehealth has made huge strides in adoption, adding critical capabilities for providers to offer safe, affordable, and effective care when and where people need it. But as the industry continues to innovate, interoperability between systems, devices, and workflows becomes a critical element for success. The ATA – with the support of ViTel Net – embarked on an effort to engage stakeholders across the industry and identify the conditions and the requirements by all parties to make interoperability in telehealth a reality. Come hear from many of these stakeholders as they frame the issues and identify important next steps for the ATA and the industry.
