Telehealth is a virtual visit in a health care facility. Telehealth uses technology to connect patients to both specialized and general health-care providers from across the province.
Video conferencing equipment, which includes a camera and microphone, is used when a patient attends a Telehealth appointment. The video conferencing technology allows patients to see and talk to their health-care provider virtually. It connects through a secure network, making sure your Telehealth appointment is private.
Telehealth is voluntary and aims to create a similar experience to in-person appointments. For more information about the virtual care experience, please refer to the Virtual Care Guide for Patients from the Canadian Medical Association.
