Virtual Care

As health-care providers, we are working diligently to implement virtual care solutions where feasible to deliver safe health care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virtual care solutions include telehealth, remote patient monitoring technology, and other technology that enables a care provider to virtually communicate with a patient.
COVID-19 Patients 
We have developed and implemented an Eastern Health-led provincial remote patient monitoring program for patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 and who are deemed at high-risk for complications.
Remote patient monitoring allows for continuous monitoring of symptoms and biometrics, while keeping patients safely at home and avoiding unnecessary visits to the emergency department and/or hospital admissions. Referral information is available on our website at
We have also implemented remote patient monitoring technologies for hospitalized COVID-19 patients. This technology enables close monitoring and caring of patients while helping to protect health-care workers and reduce the need for personal protective equipment use.
