-- The recent Supreme Court decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) may have a positive impact on the telehealth and telemedicine industries. According to a statement released by the American Telemedicine Association, the ruling will work to accelerate the adoption rate of telemedicine, mHealth and other remote healthcare technologies.
The ATA purports that the announcement removes the uncertainty that prompted healthcare providers to delay investments in telemedicine in the past. Additionally, upholding the PPACA protects the investments in telemedicine already made by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In a press release, ATA CEO Jonathan Linkous stated that the ruling will allow the U.S. to move forward and modernize the current healthcare system by implementing telemedicine to improve care and accessibility to care, and reduce the costs associated with that care.
