Telemedicine is a clinical consultation using videoconferencing technology.
Use of Telemedicine can:
- Increase access to specialists across the province.
- Reduce your patient’s travel time and expenses.
- Provide care closer to home for your patient.
- Enable family to be present during a consultation.
A telemedicine appointment is free to those with a valid OHIP card. This service is provided to all patients in the Sarnia-Lambton area. Being referred for a consult through Telemedicine is similar to being referred to a consult in person.
