Amid the spread of COVID-19, Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and American Telemedicine Association (ATA) — both based in Arlington, Virginia — have partnered to launch a new website featuring telehealth technology solutions.

Techhealthdirectory.com, which went live at the beginning of this month, features more than 100 digital health resources to assist the healthcare industry during the pandemic. The list of resources for patients and clinicians on the site, developed and hosted in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS), spans categories including remote monitoring, workforce support and medical devices.

“We are inspired by our members on the front lines, and proudly stand together with CTA and AWS to help mitigate the spread of the virus and extend access to quality care for all citizens via telehealth,” said ATA CEO Ann Mond Johnson in a press release.

Companies interested in being added to the site can submit their information here.

In partnership with a group of its member companies, CTA has also released a guide for virtual care that includes recommended practices.

“Our industry improves lives and uses innovation to help during times of crisis — and we are now rising to the challenge,” said CTA president and CEO Gary Shapiro. “Our industry is proud to volunteer our time and expertise to offer help during a critical time of need. While much is still uncertain about the outbreak of COVID-19, there have never been more innovative tech solutions available to us all.”

The consumer technology trade association is also taking its Technology and Standards Spring Forum virtual. From May 11 to 14, the forum will explore challenges and opportunities in the robotics, cybersecurity and AI sectors, and will include a session about COVID-19’s impact on the economy.
