Virtual care has become an accepted additional way to deliver care to patients efficiently and effectively. OntarioMD and the Ontario Medical Association are committed to helping raise awareness to physicians and their practices about tools to consider for virtual care delivery. While OntarioMD has not evaluated these tools and does not endorse one tool over another, we believe there is value in curating a list of tools to which OntarioMD has visibility based on our relationships and/or engagements with various provincial and national stakeholders. We encourage all practices to contact vendors directly for product-specific questions.
VIRTUAL CARE IS JUST CARE
You will likely need to think about three things when using virtual tools:
- 1. Screening of patients who are worried or ill
- 2. Caring for patients with suspected COVID-19
- 3. Caring for other patients in your practice with the intent of decreasing exposure to those who may be ill
