Telemedicine

We know that traveling long distances to a doctor’s appointment isn’t always convenient or even a realistic possibility. That’s why at CHMA we’re taking advantage of modern audio video technology, to provide you with Telemedicine. A program that allows you to communicate directly with mental health professionals using telemedicine equipment at our Alliston, Aurora, Markham, Newmarket, Vaughan.

How does it work?

Using a private two-way videoconferencing system, patients and their health care professional discuss symptoms and treatment just as they would if they were in the same room. It may sound complicated, but it’s not. The entire time a Telemedicine Nurse is there to provide you and your medical professional support.

 

There are no crowded waiting rooms, and appointments start on time, making the most of your valuable time.

We can connect you to your existing specialist appointments, if your specialist offers videoconferencing. Please contact us at telemedicine@cmha-yr.on.ca to find out about any services we can offer you.
