    In response to the disruptive influence of the COVID-19 pandemic on the in-person provision of healthcare, PAVMT is launching their official membership platform providing PAs in telehealth with a wide range of member benefits. The timing could not be more auspicious as PAVMT’s mission to educate, advocate for and support PAs in telehealth has never been more urgently needed.

    “The pandemic has required the US healthcare system to to rapidly pivot from offering traditional in-person services to providing safe and effective telehealth services,” said Amanda Shelley, PA-C President-Elect of the PAVMT. “The PA profession was born of a revolutionary notion of service to others and we’re proud to carry on that tradition of innovation as telemedicine takes center stage in healthcare delivery”.

    “The response to the launch of the enhanced PAVMT site has been truly remarkable,” said Desmond Watt PA-C, current President of the PAVMT Board. “We’ve been overwhelmed by the response from PAs across the country. They’re hungry for the enhanced resources that PAVMT can now offer and for the peer to peer relationships that PAVMT can foster.”

    PAVMT is launching this new portal in partnership with Enforme, Inc and its Association Incubator Program. “The Incubator Program was devised with associations such as PAVMT in mind,” said Kevin Fitzpatrick PA, President and CEO of Enforme. “Enforme’s Incubator program is essentially venture software that allows newly forming associations to rapidly scale without significant upfront costs”.

    For over twenty years, Enforme has had the privilege of serving some of the world’s most prominent and innovative professional associations. Together, we’ve worked to reimagine the ways in which associations create member value. We’ve done this through data-driven design, collaboration, and co-innovation.
