Joseph M. DeVivo, Chief Executive Officer of InTouch Health, stated, “The acquisition of C30 and the appointment of Dr. Rogove to lead the clinical aspects of our physician capacity management offering underscore our commitment to expanding the solutions enabled by our enterprise-based telemedicine platform. Telehealth provides unprecedented opportunities for clinicians across any clinical service line to increase coverage, reduce costs, and improve outcomes. Following our acquisition of AcuteCare Telemedicine last summer, C30 further extends our platform to better meet the needs of our Health System partners and address physician shortages nationwide. We are extremely pleased to welcome Dr. Rogove and his team of highly trained specialists to InTouch Health.”
Dr. Rogove has over thirty years of experience directing and establishing ICUs and Intensivist, Hospitalist and Emergency Medicine programs in academic and community hospital settings.

He has also held numerous leadership and administrative positions at major tertiary care facilities throughout the United States, and joined the board of directors of the American Telemedicine Association in 2012, serving as Secretary/Treasurer from 2014 through 2016.
“This is such an exciting time for the field of telemedicine, and truly for medicine in general as the ‘tele-‘ part of our field becomes an integrated part of the overall healthcare delivery system,” stated Dr. Rogove. “After devoting much of my career to implementing telemedicine-based healthcare programs, it is exciting to join forces with InTouch Health to expand our class-leading technology and services offerings.”
