What is virtual care?

Graphic showing different types of virtual care options

Virtual care is a general term to describe how doctors can interact with you remotely (not in person) – including video, audio, and electronic messaging.  

It's important to know when virtual care is an appropriate option for your medical question or concern. 

Virtual care is not appropriate when: 

  • You are experiencing a serious, sudden, and/or unexpected health issue
  • You know you will need a "hands-on" exam 
  • You do not have access to the necessary equipment for virtual care such as reliable internet access or connectivity, and a device to communicate
