Stevenson Memorial Hospital in Alliston has launched the Virtual Visits program.
That means patients in need of medical assessments and support from different areas of the hospital can participate virtually from the comfort of their own home.
The program is officially up and running and completed its first virtual visits last week.
A secure setting allows a face to face conversation with your physician or a medical professional to discuss your situation, and make a plan of care. The physician will conduct a virtual assessment, review results, and ask questions to help diagnose and manage your condition.
The areas of the hospital participating include the Mary McGill Community Mental Health Program, and cardiology and nurse practitioner/Well Woman clinics in the Ambulatory Care Unit. SMH plans on expanding the program to other areas in the future.
