Access TeleCare president and CEO Chris Gallagher, M.D. takes the stage as a featured speaker at the American Telemedicine Association’s 2023 annual conference March 4. Dr. Gallagher will share the company’s vision for the unique opportunities in specialty telemedicine to solve access to care and clinician shortage challenges.
As markets and the broader industry closely examine telehealth platforms and associated technology following the COVID-19 pandemic, Access TeleCare has grown to become the country’s largest acute care telemedicine company by focusing on prioritizing clinical excellence and tailoring its operations and practices to meet the individual needs of each hospital and outpatient clinic.
“Specialty telemedicine can be deployed today to solve hospitals’ most pressing needs and challenges – physician shortages, nurse burnout, patient retention, financial stability, and reducing readmissions,” said Chris Gallagher, M.D. “Specialty telemedicine is also a forefront solution as hospitals and health systems look at positioning themselves for a post-COVID future.”
Dallas-based Access TeleCare is leading the transformation of telemedicine to be a staple of modern health care by forming lasting clinical partnerships that help health care providers tackle today’s health care challenges, and the company is focused on making telemedicine work for both patients and providers.
The ATA2023 Annual Conference is the association’s premier event and the only conference solely focused on telehealth and virtual care.
Dr. Gallagher is a board-certified cardiologist. He became president and CEO of Access TeleCare, previously known as SOC Telemed, in September 2021. Prior to this role, Dr. Gallagher led Access Physicians, which merged with SOC Telemed in February 2021.
