During the pandemic, the development and adoption of virtual care and other digital health tools has rapidly increased in Canada.
The app works by prompting users with regular questions and connecting them to other community members or local health care practitioners.
A new survey of B.C. Children's Hospital patients and their families has found very positive feedback to the online care visit program.
Over the past year, the pandemic has necessitated the adoption of virtual care, and Canadians are mostly embracing this change.
Nearly half of Canadians surveyed used virtual medical care during pandemic, and most reported good results.
With the increased demand for virtual services, we need to ensure that all Canadians have access to digital health tools and services.
