The healthcare landscape has undergone a transformative shift, particularly in delivering healthcare services. Telemedicine is at the forefront of this expansion, which has not only made care services more accessible but has also improved quality, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness for both patients and providers. The Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) has been an advocate on behalf of digital health services across the province. As a proud member of this network, VidyoHealth contributes to the OTN with robust, scalable, and secure video conferencing solutions tailored for healthcare providers and their patients.
