What is telemedicine? It is a way to provide health-related services and information using audiovideotechnology. You will be able to see, hear and talk to a doctor using a video camera.
Why is it beneficial? Why travel far to your doctor’s appointment when you don’t have to? Registered health care providers can “visit” with their patients using telemedicine equipment at our Markham, Vaughan, Aurora, or Alliston locations. A Telemedicine Nurse is available during the session to provide patient and doctor support. There are no crowded waiting rooms and appointments start on time, making the most of your valuable time.
How does it work? Using a two-way videoconferencing system, patients and their health care professional do the same thing as might happen if they were in the same room. Patients can expect privacy.
