2019 will be a big year for telehealth, but for those attending ATA 2019 in New Orleans last week, it may not have seemed so on the surface. Particularly given that attendee numbers peaked several years ago and one-or-two high-profile regulars, such as Philips and Vidyo, were also missing from the exhibition floor this year.
With telehealth enjoying center-stage coverage at HIMSS (only two months ago) and being a key theme at consumer electronics/telecoms shows such as CES and MWC, the annual ATA exhibition and conference is trying to find its place in this New World Order. The show has provided a great service over the years helping to develop the telehealth market, but to some extent, it is now a victim of telehealth’s burgeoning success.
Whilst there were no headline-grabbing acquisitions announced, such as the American Well-Avizia acquisition and InTouch Health-Reach Health acquisition seen last year, the show was still full of new product announcements from many of the key vendors.
Signify Research’s analyst team has captured the key ATA trends and announcements along with their take on the impact on the wider industry in this special ATA 2019 show report. Key themes covered in this show report available for download below include:
– ATA – A Great Platform for New Platforms
– Unbundling the Platform from the Service
– PHM and RPM – Partners for (a better managed) Life
– ATA – Not so American
