WASHINGTON, DC, AUGUST 4, 2022 – The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) today announced that it will convene hospital systems and medical practices, telehealth solution providers, patient advocacy leaders, policymakers, and other groups to commemorate the second-annual Telehealth Awareness Week™ taking place September 18-24, 2022. During the week, the ATA and a diverse coalition of stakeholders will host a series of events, publish educational resources, and highlight the value of telehealth in a hybrid care model that includes in-person and virtual care.
“Building on the important progress we have achieved to expand access to urgently-needed telehealth and virtual care services over the past two-plus years, Telehealth Awareness Week 2022 presents a critical opportunity to provide all communities with the resources they need to better understand the many ways that telehealth improves access to safe, quality care,” said Ann Mond Johnson, CEO of the ATA. “We have great momentum and support for telehealth – from the halls of government and the halls of clinical practice to board rooms and living rooms – and now we must leverage the right resources and create the right frameworks to support a successful hybrid model that offers both in-person and virtual care. One thing is now perfectly clear: Telehealth. Is. Health.”
