According to a recent joint announcement, the leaders of the Partnership for Artificial Intelligence, Telemedicine, and Robotics in Healthcare (PATH) and the Telemedicine and Telehealth Service Provider Summit (SPS) have agreed to have SPS formally incorporated into PATH. The agreement reportedly brings to PATH a highly rated and expanding conference that further advances telehealth partnerships.

“The Arizona Telemedicine Program is pleased to be passing the baton for our national ‘Service Provider Summit’ to the meeting of the Partnership for Artificial Intelligence, Telemedicine, and Robotics in Healthcare (PATH). PATH is tapping into the convergence of new and established technologies that will be transformational in the healthcare industry by 2030. By then over 50 per cent of all medical imaging will be diagnosed by AI-enabled robots. They are the ‘imaging service providers of the future,’” said Ronald Weinstein, MD, Director Arizona Telemedicine Program. “Jon Linkous, the PATH CEO has an extraordinary track record in identifying innovative healthcare technologies early on in the pipeline. He then creates new organizations to speed up their adoption. PATH looks like a home run to me.”

“I am very excited about this development,” said Jonathan Linkous, CEO, PATH. “Incorporating the incredible success of SPS with PATH gives a great boost to our efforts to transform healthcare. Dr. Weinstein is a visionary and pioneer in the fields of pathology and telemedicine, having served as Past President of 6 professional organizations and President Emeritus of the American Telemedicine Association (ATA). We share the vision that the confluence of telemedicine, AI and other innovations is fundamental to solving the difficulties facing healthcare today.”
