Now What? Creating an Opportunity in a Time of Uncertainty
This year’s theme, Now What? Creating an Opportunity in a Time of Uncertainty will explore the virtual health landscape and examine what will be necessary to establish telehealth as a permanent modality in care delivery.
COVID-19 created an almost overnight shift in how care is delivered. We were not ready for such a seismic change, but telehealth quickly became the solution, a lifeline for people, no matter where they lived, to access needed healthcare services. Through this rapid transformation hospital systems, solution providers, and clinicians began to create a hybrid delivery system of in-person and virtual care to best serve the needs of patients. But the pandemic also brought to light existing disparities in health care access and a gaping digital divide.
So, now what?
In order to establish telehealth as a permanent, valid and necessary component of everyday care delivery, there are several imperatives:
- Enact state and federal policies that establish permanent and appropriate access to telehealth.
- Enrich existing healthcare systems with well-designed virtual care services and support clinicians with the necessary tools and training to deliver convenient, personalized, quality care to their patients.
- Fuel innovation, research, and the implementation of telehealth in a range of care settings, including the home.
- Establish the necessary infrastructures to extend equal access to safe, secure, and effective care in communities across the country.
- Empower consumers and patients to leverage telehealth whenever and wherever they need it, to help solve health disparities.
There are also several obstacles that affect provider behavior, patient engagement, and business success: Growing uncertainty about the future of telehealth access, an unpredictable regulatory environment, mounting concerns around reimbursement, and turbulence in the marketplace.
ATA2022 features the decision-makers and thought leaders, the boots-on-the-ground clinicians, the forward-looking innovators and solution providers, and the policymakers who are creating the future. The agenda will build upon the lessons learned, identify the challenges and opportunities in these uncertain times, and convene the individuals, organizations, and decision-makers to cement the gains made to establish telehealth as a care modality in a modernized healthcare system.
The program will showcase a mix of practical applications of telehealth – from preventative and primary care to behavioral health and other areas of specialty care — and hands-on workshops, mixed with a luminary vision of important next steps for telehealth’s future.
Speakers will include those who are setting the tempo for disrupting healthcare, redesigning the patient experience, and leveraging technology to achieve healthcare equality. Attendees will be engaged in the discussion, debate, and decision-making as ATA2022 tackles the toughest challenges and reveals the latest strategies to design the right technologies, implement the best practices and improve patient and provider experiences and clinical outcomes.
