Quality Rounds Ontario webinar: The promise of virtual care

Ontarians made nearly 900,000 virtual visits with health care professionals in 2018. And interest in virtual health care is growing every day – for eVisits, online consultations, email, and more. 

We hear from clinicians and patients the many reasons to improve and support more access to virtual care. For example, expanding access could enhance the quality of care for many people, especially for those living in rural and remote communities. So, what does it take to make it happen? 

At the February Quality Rounds, we’ll hear from leaders in virtual care who’ll share their process to successfully offer virtual clinics. We’ll look at results from primary care and specialty clinics; and learn from a patient which changes made the most difference to them.
