Telemedicine/OTN for Inpatients
SJGHEL provides secure videoconferencing connecting inpatients with healthcare professionals using the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN). Inpatients in our Hospital can have virtual appointments with a doctor elsewhere in Ontario, saving time and the inconvenience of travelling.
- Inpatients in Elliot Lake Ontario can meet with a doctor or specialist located in Sudbury, Sault Ste Marie, etc.
- We can also facilitate Physician-to-Physician consultations over distances.
The Telemedicine and OTN networks are safe and secure, ensuring that your consultation and personal health information are kept confidential at all times.
