The Nashville Entrepreneur Center (NEC), a nonprofit dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs and business leaders across the state of Tennessee, is collaborating with The Disruption Lab and Sage Growth Partners to launch a Telehealth Academy. The Academy is an eight-week program designed for healthcare industry professionals and early-stage innovators and entrepreneurs who are interested in garnering insights from top experts within the industry including Senator William (Bill) Frist, MD, Chief Clinical Innovation Officer of NTT Data, Michael Petersen, MD, Founder-CEO of Zus Health Jonathan Bush, Founder of Heal Nick Desai, Strategist and Policy expert Paul Keckley, VP Digital Health Strategy of the AMA, Meg Barron, and Founder of MeMD John Shufeldt, MD, among many others.

In addition, participants will hear from experts in telehealth and virtual care from Mayo Clinic, Atrium Health, the American Medical Association (AMA), Teladoc, Mass General Brigham, HCA Healthcare, Intermountain Healthcare, Blue Shield of California, the Center for Connected Health Policy, and the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Registration for the program is open now. The first session will begin on September 14 and the Academy will run every Tuesday through November 2. Pricing for the Academy is:

  • $995 per participant
  • $99 per participants for startups and early-stage entrepreneurs and innovators with revenue under $5M with promo code STARTUP at checkout

Through August 20, 2021, participants can register for $495 with promo code EarlyAdopter at checkout.

"We have learned so much over the last 17 months, particularly within health and healthcare delivery models," said Eric Thrailkill, Chairman of Nashville Entrepreneur Center's Project Healthcare. "The pandemic required the industry to rapidly adopt new models of care including telehealth, virtual care and digital health offerings. We now have an opportunity to innovate - to expand outside the confines of yesterday and integrate these solutions within certain care delivery processes. The pandemic pushed us to think creatively, strategically, and boldly."

The Telehealth Academy is designed for healthcare providers specifically looking to develop a roadmap and better integrate telehealth and virtual care into their care delivery strategies. It's structured around weekly virtual sessions over the course of eight weeks, with opening and closing sessions offered both in-person and virtually. Every week the program will introduce expert faculty from within healthcare who will cover a variety of topics including telehealth technology, financial models, the regulatory environment, and more.

"Telehealth and virtual care are here to stay," according to Dan D'Orazio, CEO, Sage Growth Partners. "The Academy will allow healthcare professionals from across the country to hear from some of the industry's greatest minds as they continue to innovate and address regulatory impacts, technology strategies, and integrating telehealth and virtual care into existing services - without increasing clinician burden and building on the satisfaction of patients and consumers."

At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to participate with industry experts to develop a three-year vision and one-year implementation plan for their own organizations.

Confirmed faculty include:

"We are at a unique point in history," said Phil Gibbs, Principal at The Disruption Lab. "Everything has changed and this is particularly true in healthcare. What healthcare providers are experiencing with the acceleration of virtual care not only reflects the impact of the pandemic, but the convergence of technology, consumerism, and social forces. The Entrepreneur Center's Project Healthcare is perfectly positioned to convene provider organizations, entrepreneurs, and industry experts to confront the issues and plan for the future.

Sponsors include NTT Data, American Medical Association (AMA), North Highland, Clearwater Compliance, Nashville Health Care Council and Uniti Health.
