Telehealth Academy III

Nashville-Based Healthcare’s Embrace of Telehealth and Virtual Care:

Digital Health’s New Champions


Every segment of the healthcare industry is reimagining the impact of virtual and hybrid care as services continue migrating toward more accessible, lower cost sites of care— including the home. As the industry grapples with tremendous headwinds, we are seeing permanent shifts in care delivery models to address the challenges of cost, utilization, access, and safety. Telehealth Academy III is an associated event with Nashville Healthcare Sessions.

September 21, 2023

8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

“A Health & Human Services report detailed a 63-fold increase in the use of telehealth by Medicare beneficiaries, from 840,000 annual encounters in 2019 to approximately 52.7 million encounters in 2020. Two years later we continue to see telehealth solutions contribute significantly to the healthcare industry. It’s clear that telehealth is not a Covid novelty.”
– Eric Thrailkill, Chairman Project Healthcare

Calling All Healthcare Leaders
