Find your EDGE in Policy, Strategy, Action

We’re on the edge of a new era of healthcare. Technology is advancing. Healthcare legislation is changing on both the federal and state levels. Access is an area of increasing interest across specialties, and people are in dire need of quality, affordable healthcare.

As the leading association working to transform the way we deliver healthcare, the American Telemedicine Association is bringing together industry experts to develop actionable strategies for advancing the future of telehealth.

For many years , ATA has hosted an annual Fall Forum. This year, we are replacing it with something new – something that will help you find your edge and will shape the future of telemedicine.

EDGE 2017 will foster insightful discussions and networking among healthcare disruptors and change agents to discover new ways to think about old problems. In interactive learning labs, attendees will work side-by-side with industry thought leaders from diverse backgrounds and experiences to tackle the most critical issues facing the telemedicine industry today: rural access, specialty care, personal health, and patient engagement.

We invite organizations and companies to send their leadership to our Forum to:

  • Learn from experts about what’s next in telemedicine
  • Network will fellow telemedicine professionals from around the country
  • Hear from those who are shaping policy on the national level
  • Get a hands-on experience like nothing else in our industry

Join us at EDGE 2017 to find your edge. Together, we will push the boundaries of what is possible by developing real-world solutions to real-world challenges.
