Video: Virtual technology transforming the way care is delivered to our communities

August 7, 2017

Innovation and technology have a tremendous opportunity to transform how healthcare services are delivered to people who experience barriers – from the stigma associated with illness to challenges accessing services in remote or rural locations. The Women’s College Hospital Institute for Health System Solutions and Virtual Care, or WIHV, is leading cutting-edge projects that help improve the way care is delivered to patients across Ontario and beyond.

With the present and future needs of patients in mind, WIHV develops, evaluates and implements innovative solutions to healthcare challenges, by testing new ideas, programs and policy approaches that improve patient experience and outcomes.

As part of this work, in partnership with Canada Health Infoway and Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN), WIHV is evaluating virtual services and digital health applications with patients across the province to improve access to health services such as on-demand, anonymous mental health support and self-management tools. This is just one of many examples of how we are transforming patient care for everyone, no matter where they live and despite the barriers they may experience.
