Telemedicine

The Lakeview Family Health Team provides telemedicine services throught the Ontario Telemedicine Newwork (OTN).

Telemedicine uses technology to provide access to clinical health care in communities in Ontario at a distance.  A secure network porvides two way videoconferencing systems to connect the patient to health care professionals and specialists throughout Ontario.

In partnership with the Belleville Quinte Community Health Centre, the support of a registered nurse supports the appointment with the specialist or health care team.  The patient benefits from decreased travel time and costs associated with medical appointments outside the local area.
