Virtual care can improve access to health care for those with limited access to in person care, such as those living in rural areas in Ontario.

What is a Nurse Practitioner virtual visit?

A virtual visit connects you with a Nurse Practitioner online and is a great way to get the health care you need from the comfort and safety of your own home.

Allows your Nurse Practitioner to provide care for you without an in person office visit. The visit is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

You can get a variety of specialized care through a virtual visit. Virtual visits are especially helpful to monitor and improve ongoing health issues, such as medication changes or chronic health conditions.
