Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

This week, the American Telemedicine Association is hosting a special Federal Telemedicine Policy Summit to review rapidly developing national telehealth policies and explore new opportunities for providers utilizing remote healthcare technologies. The Summit takes place June 27-28, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.
