I want to use virtual care — what do I need to know?
Use of virtual care has rapidly been rolled-out across the province. The provincial government has introduced a temporary fee code change that allows physicians to more flexibly bill for virtual visits.
How do I decide if virtual care is an appropriate way to provide patient care?
The College encourages physicians to consider adopting virtual care into their practice during the pandemic to help ensure access to care, to support the conservation of PPE, and to avoid increasing the risk of exposure to COVID-19. Physicians should, wherever possible, provide care virtually that they would have otherwise provided in person.
