Webinar – How Virtual Care Fits Within The Health Ecosystem

By October 7, 2019 No Comments

Getting an appointment with a family doctor that suits a busy schedule can be difficult. Individuals often wait weeks, even months to address a simple health issue. Ultimately, they have to book time off for the appointment and sometimes, drive into another city to get the care required. Sound familiar?

What if you could improve this process by providing a digital health solution to access health professionals at any moment of the day, anywhere? What if your members could be connected to a doctor or a nurse practitioner over their computers or mobiles?

Welcome to the future of virtual care.

According to the Canadian Medical Association, most Canadians believe that virtual care is the right step for the health care system, helping by improving access to care at the right time1. Understanding how it could benefit your members’ everyday life can help you advance in the right direction. For simple health issues that need no follow-up, such as a sinus infection, renewing a prescription or a mild rash, it is an efficient and convenient solution for your members and their loved ones.

Join our webinar to learn about the what, why and how of virtual care, and how to get the most out of it.
