ATA 2014 celebrates innovation, provides valuable connections
Welcome to ATA 2014! Today more than 6,000 healthcare professionals will convene to meet and network at the world's largest meeting and trade show focused on telemedicine, telehealth and mHealth. Reed Tuckson, M.D., ATA Vice President and ATA 2014's Program Chair, promises attendees 14 exciting and innovating tracks to suit any and all telehealth needs. Tuckson says, "We expect this convention will mirror a growing level of expertise; mirror a new innovation in using technology applied to comprehensive, holistic connected care delivery; and will mirror a new engagement of resources and new players who have not traditionally been in the telehealth space." He believes attendees will walk away with an assortment of valuable connections that are imperative to providing comprehensive and holistic solutions to the problems that face the industry today.

    Engaging Leadership and Making the Case for Telehealth
    Sunday, May 18
    8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
    Meeting Room 316

    This advanced-level course takes the next step in the evolution of business strategy for developing and continually supporting telehealth initiatives by focusing on engaging executive-level teams. Many organizations look to the executive leadership team to make strategic decisions regarding developing and moving forward with a telehealth strategy; however, the dialogue and discussion often develop at a different organizational level and lack the program data, a strategic link, an executive-level briefing, or simple marketing to move forward with or expand a telehealth program. Hidden in each program’s daily success are data that can be put together in a fiscally meaningful argument, lend significant value and persuasion to any presentation regarding telehealth to executive leadership and organizational stakeholders. This course provides the participant with information on how telehealth impacts community benefit and how to use community benefit as a tool with executive leadership.
