Why Virtual Care?

Virtual care allows patients to have a remote appointment with a healthcare provider through their smartphone, tablet, computer or other internet-enabled device.

 

Patients have long suffered the burden of long waiting times, large distances to travel, lack of available specialists, potential exposure to infection in waiting rooms and the need to take significant time out of their busy lives for an appointment with the healthcare provider.

 

Virtual care brings accessibility, convenience and safety to a meeting with the healthcare provider.
