A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular appointment; only the specialist you will be seeing and speaking with is on a monitor. Free to residents of Ontario, OTN connects you with the right health care professional, in the right place, at the right time.

 

Why should you talk to your doctor about OTN?

  • to access a specialist from anywhere in Ontario in a timely manner.
  • to receive care closer to your home.
  • to reduce travel to appointments, saving time and money.

Emergency care, closer to home

Health care emergencies are those situations in which patients experience sudden serious injury or illness, or have troubling symptoms related to an ongoing or new medical condition.  Telemedicine provides a way to respond to those emergencies, by providing just-in-time access to specialists 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Physicians can use OTN to connect by videoconference to a specialist located in another city.  The specialist can see and hear both the patient and the physician and nursing staff while  providing the appropriate treatment advice, including decisions about medications and whether or not a patient should be moved to a facility that is better suited to provide the type of care that is required.
