Summary

The Telehealth team is working in collaboration with the Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) to roll out a new videoconferencing technology with select clinicians. This new technology, called PCVC (or Personal Computer Video Conferencing) allows UHN consultants to see patients and attend educational events via web conferencing software on their personal computers.

This program will expand the scope and flexibility of video conferencing services across UHN, creating more opportunities for doctors, nurses and other clinicians to see patients from outside the GTA. Built on a web-based platform utilizing Vidyo Desktop software, PCVC is a safe and secure method of conducting video conferences for clinical and non-clinical events.
