About 60 per cent of healthcare visits in Canada are now conducted virtually, a jump from the 10 to 20 per cent pre-pandemic.
The London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) in London, Ont., has launched a virtual clinic to support patients diagnosed with COVID-19.
Expanding virtual offerings needs to be done thoughtfully, though, to avoid current inequalities.
A recent study showed how patients are finding value in virtual care, with many citing a rewarding rapport with their provider.
Canadians embraced virtual care options like phone or video appointments during COVID-19, according to a new poll released by the CMA.
Working together, Canadians, health care practitioners and industry can transform health care.
