TELEHEALTH

Telehealth uses videoconferencing technology to connect you to health care providers who are not located in your community. A Telehealth appointment is very similar to a face to face appointment. You can see, hear and talk to your health care provider. Telehealth reduces the need to travel and increases access to health care services.
  • Benefits

    A Telehealth benefits evaluation showed that 79% of providers and 81% of patients surveyed agreed that “Telehealth has made it easier for my patients/me to obtain an appointment with the specialist or other provider at the provider site.” Patients using Telehealth services reported finding “no difference in using videoconferencing compared to a visit in person.”

  • Progress

    Telehealth has been in Newfoundland and Labrador for over 30 years and is constantly growing through new locations and interested health care providers discovering its benefits. With a focus on chronic disease management, the benefits of Telehealth in this province are being realized.

To see if Telehealth is right for you and available in your area, talk to your health care provider.
