At OTN, we believe connected care is the future.
As health care innovations emerge in the marketplace, we assess their efficacy and positive impact on clinical care in Ontario. We look for best-in-class telemedicine solutions that support patient-centred, integrated care.
OTNhub provides those solutions in one place:
- eConsult allows you to consult with specialists in more than 27 areas of care
- eVisit lets you arrange real-time video visits with patients or peers
- eCare uses apps and other devices to monitor patients or coach them to manage their condition at home
- Health Services Directory enables you to find healthcare facilities and specialists across Ontario that support eVisit and eConsult, plus specialists available for in-person visits and community services in the Toronto region.
Together with our partners, we are working to make health care better across Ontario.
