ATA CEO IDs trends impacting telehealth

American Telemedicine Association CEO Jonathan Linkous said seven market trends will help shape the immediate future of telehealth, according to a statement released yesterday.

He also said telemedicine is becoming a standard of care. "'Teleradiology' is now so common that many hospitals don't recognize the name--outsourcing part or all of a radiology program is just the way things are now done in healthcare," Linkous said. "Providing 24/7 services by a radiologist, using telehealth technologies, may be the first form of telemedicine that becomes a true standard of care." Read the full statement
