OTN's emergency Telemedicine applications can help to provide high quality emergency care closer to home so you and your family don't need to travel for care.



Use of Telemedicine in acute care supports primary, community, hospital and long-term care settings with just-in-time access to urgent/emergent expertise for stroke, trauma or burn, to manage patients experiencing sudden serious injury or illness closer to home. 

This expansion of limited specialist resources across the Province improves quality of care and system efficiency through the avoidance of unnecessary patient transfers, reduced ER demand and visits and earlier and faster diagnosis for better patient outcomes.
