The American Telehealth Association has launched the first phase of its goal of eliminating health disparities in virtual care. 

The association unveiled its CEO's advisory group, co-chaired by Optum, GEHA Health and MCIC Vermont, according to an Oct. 26 association news release.

The advisory board includes dozens of healthcare organizations, including Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente, Salt Lake City-based IntermountainHealthcare and New York City-based NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. 

Over the next year, the advisory group will outline steps the healthcare industry can take to apply telehealth to efforts to reduce health disparities, according to the release.
