About Your Telemedicine Visit
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. The healthcare professional with you may assist with the examination, using tele-diagnostic equipment like a stethoscope, otoscope or patient examination camera. The specialist on the monitor can hear heart and breath sounds and look into your ear, nose and throat as if she were sitting in the same room.
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.
