ATA2021 Annual Conference & Expo - General Submissions

Speaker Nominations and Session Topics: General Program

The ATA2021 Annual Conference & Expo program is being curated by a select Advisory Committee, together with the program team, and is accepting recommendations for session topics including real-world applications, best practices, and the practical insights and learnings that will help advance telehealth implementation; as well as nominations for forward-thinking, innovative speakers.

Speakers and topics should fit with ATA2021 theme Telehealth: Enabling Flexible, Inclusive and Contemporary Care Delivery. Programming will build upon the lessons learned, identify the challenges and opportunities of today’s new realities, 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.

ATA2021 Content Pillars

The COVID-19 public health emergency has proven that the future of care must include a hybrid system of in-person and virtual care that puts the patient first and delivers a quality experience to individual wherever and whenever they need it. We have seen how emerging technologies – from remote monitoring and asynchronous interactions to artificial intelligence and chat bots – can change the course of healthcare. We have been humbled, we have been resilient and resourceful, and we have learned how to effectively deliver quality care to more people, achieving better results and greater satisfaction. There’s no turning back.
