CTeL Stands Against Hate

In the wake of the horrific events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month, we at CTeL wanted to take a moment to share our thoughts with you.

Simply put: We unequivocally condemn racism, white supremacy, inequality, and bigotry in all its forms. What’s more, like many in the health care field, we’ve been reflecting on the role that we as an industry can play in uniting—not dividing—people. Because illness and injury touch lives across the country, regardless of patient age, gender, race, class, and sexual orientation. And when they do, everyone has the right to receive the best possible care.

When Robert J. Waters and his colleagues founded CTeL back in 1995, they had the foresight to recognize the potential of telehealth, which was still in its infancy, to expand access to quality health care. To break down geographical and other barriers to bring care to people where they needed it, when they needed it. That’s what telehealth does—it connects people. And that’s why today, through the Telehealth Reimbursement Coalition, we’re working hard to ensure that more people—regardless of where they live—have access to quality telehealth care. Join us in our efforts to connect all patients to the care that they deserve.
