What is Telemedicine


What is Telemedicine?

A medical appointment by telemedicine, also known as an eVisit, uses videoconferencing technology supported through the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) to connect healthcare sites throughout Ontario to the IBD Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital. This technology enables patients to receive “virtual” care close to home. Similar to a regular doctor’s appointment, a telemedicine visit is private and confidential, for it is seen and heard only by the healthcare professionals involved. The appointment happens in real time and is not video recorded.
