As many people in Nunavut live in remote and isolated communities; the Government of Nunavut recognizes that tele-health can deliver a wide range of health care and social services to their citizens. At OHSNI promoting the use of tele-health is well established within our programs. In partnership with Nunavut and the Correctional Services of Canada, we strive to increase tele-health use for family consultations, professional teaching, clinical assessments, family visitations and administrative issues.
OHSNI does not own a tele-health platform. We work in partnership with the local Ottawa hospital coordinators, the Ontario Tele-Health Network, the Baffin Regional Tele-Health coordinators and its administration, and the Correctional Services of Canada.
