SANTA BARBARA, CA, July 6, 2017 – InTouch Health, the leading telehealth enterprise platform, announced today the lineup for its 11th Annual Telehealth Innovation Forum, July 24-26, 2017, in Santa Barbara, California, at The Fess Parker Doubletree Hilton Resort. The annual conference convenes hundreds of healthcare leaders and organizations across the country for a dialogue on best practices regarding regulations and coverage, clinical and business workflow models and achieved outcomes in the rapidly-evolving, telehealth landscape.

“The health care industry is at a pivotal moment in transforming care delivery to better serve patients and to drive smart innovation,” said Joseph DeVivo, CEO of InTouch Health. “Wherever an organization is in its utilization of telehealth, we as health care leaders can – and should – learn from each other to propel the vision of a better system forward in a feasible, efficient and effective way. Attending the 11th Annual Telehealth Innovation Forum is a great way to learn from world-leading institutions.”
