Abbotsford Division of Family Practice

Telemedicine in an Urban Setting Pilot

Over the past three years, the Abbotsford Division launched two pilot projects to evaluate the use of telemedicine in an urban setting with attached patients. The evaluation of telemedicine’s ability to enhance access and longitudinal care will inform local, regional, and provincial virtual care policies. Learnings and recommendations from this project have been sent forward to the Ministry of Health to inform Telemedicine policy. Development work initiated in this project will support the Patient Medical Home Network and the Primary Care Network.
