Virtual Care in Ontario
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; reduce pressure on hospitals; and modernize consumer access to care.

Access to Care
Health care is about people. It is provided by people, consumed by people, and exists to help people. This reality must inform the way health care is accessed.
By providing a wide range of virtual services that are indispensable to people’s well-being – including unprecedented access to primary care and mental health care – we are modernizing the way consumers access the care they need. More About OTN →
