TeleHealth is a Provincial network of secure videoconferencing facilities, connecting health providers and patients. Patients have the option of scheduling live consultations with participating TeleHealth specialists, using audio visual equipment that allows both parties to see and hear each other from remote locations. For many patients, this option eliminates the need for long journeys to attend consultations that do not require physical examination. In some cases, TeleHealth can reduce wait time for consultations. Please discuss with your specialist if you are interested in registering for this new consultation method.
