The Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) is one of the largest telemedicine networks in the world. Designed to increase access to family doctors, specialists, and other health care providers such as CMHA, eVisits are often a time-saving and convenient option. eVisits connect you to your health care provider either from home on your own device, or from a health care hub near you. Every day, more and more providers offer video as an alternative to having an in-office appointment. There is no cost to patients. eVisits provide the same level of care as you’d expect with an in-office visit, as well as the opportunity for family members or other caregivers to participate in your care if appropriate. And the interaction is safe and private, with sensitive information transmitted through a secure network. Virtual care makes accessing health care more convenient, minimizes time spent travelling, and provides better support for people requiring support. The result is better outcomes and less time spent away from the people and things that really matter.
As a designated OTN HUB, CMHA offer’s OTN service as part of the Telemedicine network partners who can utilize virtual appointments with their individuals. CMHA programs and services continue to provide care through telephone and OTN as necessary. Patients who do not have access to a computer at home may utilize CMHA’s on site facilities, at no charge, to meet with their health care provider using OTN. Individuals who are interested should contact their primary care provider and/or health care provider for more information.
