eVisit for Primary Care | Virtual Health Care Appointments: Content
eVisits are a convenient and time saving option for both patients and providers when an in-office visit isn’t needed. Reduce no-shows and cancellations while increasing practice capacity through enabling access both for patients who may be rural or remote, as well as those in urban areas who are challenged by time off work, childcare, travel, and parking. Enhance the care you currently provide through video interactions which are safe and private, transmitted through a secure network. eVisits are billable through the OHIP claims system.
Connect your patients with the right specialist no matter where the patient is located, ensuring equal access to the best care and continuity of care.
Patients can connect to care through video when a physical exam and virtual care nursing support isn’t needed, eliminating the common barriers to accessing specialized care.
eVisits support professional collaboration by enabling video connections between peers, and continued learning and knowledge sharing through virtual grand rounds.
