ATA's EDGE Policy Conference

Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC
December 6-8, 2021

Maintaining Public Policy Momentum

The ATA EDGE Policy Conference will take place December 6-8, 2021, at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC. This year’s conference is focused on finding solutions and creating a path forward, as we brace for continued uncertainty in telehealth access, availability, and reimbursement in the year ahead.
EDGE2021 will convene thought leaders, policymakers, and pundits to discuss key perspectives from the front lines, explore the opportunity to create a two-channel, hybrid care delivery system, and tackle some of the toughest issues, including diversity, equity, and inclusion, extending care to vulnerable populations, and the roadblocks in legislation, regulation, and infrastructure that must be overcome.
As we approach a full two years under a public health emergency, what do you need to know, what does your organization need to do to avoid the Telehealth Cliff? Join us at EDGE2021 to find out.
