Jacksonville, FL, October 14, 2018   American TelePhysicians has been selected as a FINALIST in the 2nd Annual Innovation Ignition Competition 2018!  
As one of only eight Finalists, our SHIFA4U project will be formally recognized and Dr. Waqas Ahmed, Founder and CEO, will be presenting at Coverge2Xelerate being held by Partners in Digital Health, publishers of Blockchain in Healthcare Today and Telehealth and Medicine Today, on October 24, 2018 at Columbia University, New York City, USA.  
The event presents a full day of concurrent tracks featuring sessions  that present a worldview for transformative technologies that modernize healthcare.  The foremost  innovators and savants in blockchain technology, telehealth, AI, and other novel technologies will convene at the Convege2Xcelerate healthcare modernization event,  to address the most compelling issues, growth opportunities, and financial implications for the industry. 
Sector leadership will converge to share and challenge the integration of emerging technologies to accelerate building a new framework for the future of patient care, and modernization of a new health system. As healthcare moves from fee for service to 
pay for value, enhanced data sharing and delivering care in the right place, at the right time, at the right cost, will be critical for business survival.
