What is virtual care?

Posted September 8, 2022

Virtual care is patient care provided remotely by a doctor using communication
technologies like telephone, email, apps, videoconference, and so on.

Virtual care can provide patients with access to doctors (including specialists) who practise
in other parts of the province, across Canada and in other countries. It can save patients
time and money by enabling them to connect with their doctor from their own home or other convenient location rather than travelling to appointments.
