Telemed Leadership Forum 2019: Transforming Healthcare Delivery

About the Event

URAC hosts the second annual Telemed Leadership Forum in Washington, DC, on April 3-5, 2019. This 2-1/2-day event is designed for physicians and leaders in hospitals and health systems, health plans, academic medical centers, telehealth providers and networks, as well as government regulators and policymakers.

The sessions, which include a mix of panel discussions and presentations, provide solid, innovative and valuable information on how telehealth is transforming healthcare delivery. You’ll hear from hospitals/health systems that are leading the way in telemedicine services— leaders who are changing the telehealth paradigm. With the explosive growth in telehealth, data and technology, this Forum is an opportunity for healthcare leaders to share, learn and discuss empirical evidence for the value of telehealth across specialties.

            Here’s what attendees at the Telemed Leadership Forum 2018 have to say:

            “Amazing Telemed conference! Loved the breadth of highly knowledgeable speakers, but yet the nice intimate size for having personal conversations and building new connections. Best Telemed conference I’ve been to!”


            “I have never been to a Telemedicine Confence with such knowledgeable speakers and panelists. They were actually experienced in TM implementation and leadership and had wonderful perspectives.”


            “The speakers were well informed and provided applicable cases that I can employ at home base. The individual presentations and presenters were accessible and stated that they are open to collaborate in the future.”


            “The sessions I sat in on were very informative. More importantly, I had high-quality conversations with industry leaders, which is what I came for.”


            “Great speakers, honest conversation around the real issues and barriers around telehealth.”


            “The presenters and attendees are among a small but growing group who truly have experience with Telehealth in the real world. I thought the connection between ROI and needing to convince CMS that Telehealth needs to reimbursed sustainably was essential to the theme of the conference.”
