Ontario Telemedicine

Providing Care with Telemedicine

Ontario Telemedicine (OTN) uses telecommunications technology to provide clinical health care in Ontario at a distance. It helps improve access to medical services that often would not be available consistently in distant rural communities. Telemedicine can save lives in critical care and emergency situations.

Why should you talk to your Nurse Practitioner about OTN?

  • To access a specialist from anywhere in Ontario in a timely manner
  • To receive care closer to your home
  • To reduce travel to appointments, saving time and money

About your Telemedicine Visit

A telemedicine appointment is just like a regular appointment, only the specialist you will be seeing and speaking to you on a monitor. Free to residents of Ontario, OTN connects you with the right health care professional, in the right place, at the right time.
