Telehealth Academy III: brings together a collective of healthcare powerhouse experts to forecast virtual care innovation and scale impact

Nashville, Tenn. (July 17, 2023) – The Nashville Entrepreneur Center (NEC) is announcing Telehealth Academy III, a Nashville-based conference designed for healthcare industry professionals and entrepreneurs to learn about virtual care advancements happening in telehealth. The event will take place on September 21, 2023, from 8 am to 4 pm with a focus on policy, technology, care at home, and efficient solutions addressing workforce challenges. 

This year’s program is presented by eVisit, a leading virtual care platform built to help health systems  and large, complex healthcare organizations deliver an efficient, engaging virtual care experience.

“We proudly announce the highly anticipated third edition of the event, Telehealth Academy III,” said Eric Thrailkill, chairman of Project Healthcare, an accelerator program of Nashville Entrepreneur Center. “This year’s program promises to provide participants with invaluable insights into the evolving landscape of telehealth due to an impressive lineup of sponsors, including eVisit, Epstein Becker & Green, NTTData, HCA Healthcare, Ziegler, and Best Buy Health. Their support underscores the significance of telehealth and virtual care in shaping the future of healthcare delivery and improving patient outcomes.”

Every segment of the healthcare industry is reimagining the impact of virtual care as services continue migrating toward more accessible, lower cost sites of care — including the home.
