Virtual Care

Virtual visits

The eHealth Centre of Excellence can support primary care providers with the adoption of virtual care, with the goal of improving timely access to primary care and ensuring that all patients in the region are getting the care they need, when they need it.

Virtual care can support secure synchronous and asynchronous communications between patients and providers. With the interchangeable use of video, phone, and chat messaging, patients and providers have the flexibility to respond to one another at their convenience.

Our team has a wealth  of experience assisting primary care providers with the sustainable integration of virtual care into their workflows.

If you are interested in getting started, please don't hesitate to reach out.
