The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) and the American Board of Telehealth (ABT) have partnered to expand access to training and education for virtual care. ABT founding member Deanna Larson said both organizations have the shared goal of incorporating telehealth "into the everyday fabric of healthcare." ATA members will gain discounted access to ABT's CORE Concepts in Telehealth Certificate through the partnership. ABT will further offer a behavioral telehealth certificate and a primary telehealth certificate in the weeks ahead, which may be used for Continuing Medical Education or Continuing Nursing Education credits. "ABT's Certificate Program is the gold standard for telehealth education, preparing healthcare providers to use telehealth and virtual care in the delivery of safe, effective, quality care to their patients, wherever and whenever they need it," said ATA CEO Ann Mond Johnson.
