Telemedicine is the delivery of health care from a distance using virtual technology. Also known as virtual health care, telemedicine helps people access the care they need when and where they need it.
By maximizing access to care and minimizing travel and wait times, virtual care makes health care delivery more human, efficient, and equitable. Working together with patients, primary care providers, and specialists, we can provide more care options and innovative solutions that help improve access to specialized care and reduces pressure on hospitals.
In our fast-paced world, the convenience of telemedicine is remarkable. Patients can save time, money and the inconvenience of travelling to receive health care close to home.
The Telemedicine Department at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre uses secure technology, to connect patients with healthcare professionals using the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) and Keewaytinook Okimakanak EHealth Telemedicine Services (KOTM).
Virtual Care can occur in many different ways:
All Telemedicine appointments must be requested by your health care provider. Nursing support is available for appointment hosted at TBRHSC. If you prefer to not travel for an appointment, ask your provider if they are able to schedule you a virtual appointment.
In some cases, your health care provider may not be familiar with Telemedicine. You can forward them OTN’s Customer Care number at 1-855-654-0888 or email us at email@example.com and we will assist them.
