As part of the OTN Hub network of services we utilize the advantages of technology to minimize services gaps due to our remote location, we are able to bring the specialist to you through OTN. Telemedicine helps improve access to medical services that often would not be available consistently in distant rural communities.
A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular appointment, only the specialist you will be seeing and speaking with is not in person but through a videoconference system. With the use of technology and innovation in the field the specialist is able to run diagnostics and read them in real-time as if in person so treatment is not compromised. This service is covered under OHIP, a specialized nurse will connect each patient with the right health care professional and assist the patient throughout their e-visit. For more information please read the Telemedicine Appointment brochure.
