What is telemedicine?
Updated over a week ago

Telemedicine, or telehealth, is a tool that has long existed elsewhere in the world and even in other Canadian provinces. It uses telecommunications technology to provide medical care for patients in remote areas or who have physical or other constraints which make travel difficult, or who simply do not require a physical exam and can therefore receive health care without losing valuable time in a clinic waiting room or in emergency.
