The American Telemedicine Association’s free monthly videocast, “This Month in Telemedicine,” has been a stellar success, with hundreds tuning in each broadcast for the latest news and policy updates impacting telemedicine and mHealth. The videocast airs live each month and focuses on federal and state policy developments, innovative payment mechanisms, funding opportunities and other high-impact issues in the field. The variable format includes presentations and interviews, as well as live question and answer sessions with the viewers.
