Telehealth

NWT Telehealth connects patients in their home communities with health care providers in other locations through secure video conferencing. This means that you can see, hear and talk to a specialist from a TV monitor without leaving your home community. There are currently 90 telehealth sites throughout the NWT.

The benefits of telehealth include:

  • Less time away from home or work to receiving care.
  • Reduced costs and stress associated with travel.
  • Access to services that are not available in your home community.
  • Secure and confidential.
  • Choosing to allow family members to participate in your appointment.
  • Improves the quality of your care by having follow-up appointments.
  • Ability for professional development, support and patient education.
