Primary Health Care Virtual Care
Virtual Care uses audio/video technology to connect patients with health care providers, closer to home.
Primary Health Care is the first point of health care in our Nova Scotia health system. Citizens connect with a family doctor or nurse practitioner to get care. There are private offices and there are collaborative family practice teams who deliver health services.
Many primary health care locations are equipped to provide access to virtual care. Contact your health care providers directly to find out if they are offering virtual appointments.
Nova Scotia Primary Health Care Providers use various Virtual Care tools. If you receive an invitation to a virtual care appointment, the links below provide information about some virtual care methods.
- Zoom for Healthcare Patient Support
- Medeo Patient Support
- Accuro Engage Support
- Pomelo Health[ML1]
