With only a few weeks until ATA2022 – the American Telemedicine Association’s 26th Annual Conference & Expo – our team looks forward to seeing people from across the telemedicine industry for conversations and insights about the future of digital health (and plenty of smiles and fun surprises in the process).

This year’s conference will explore the theme, “Now What? Creating an Opportunity in a Time of Uncertainty,” examining the virtual health landscape and what will be necessary to establish telehealth as a permanent, valid, and necessary component of everyday care delivery. Join us and other digital health leaders at this multi-day event to build upon lessons learned and identify the challenges and opportunities to improve patient and provider experiences, and clinical outcomes, in these uncertain times.
