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.

“Our goal is to clarify the many opportunities that exist for the expansion of telemedicine and mHealth within existing federal policy, as well as new openings that will come about as part of ongoing national health reform,” said Jonathan Linkous, Chief Executive Officer of the American Telemedicine Association. “At the same time, by showcasing a broad consensus of support for telemedicine, we hope to push Congress and the Administration for increased adoption of these vital health services.”
