Why a telephone code?

February 19, 2018
  • All provinces compensate physicians, to a greater or lesser degree, for non-face-to-face telephone consultation with other health care providers within a variety of health programs.
  • Non-face-to-face care service can mean greater access to quality care, better management of chronic disease, and a solution to critical physician shortages in both urban and rural areas. These can also save patient transportation costs and missed work income.
  • These services can also avoid unnecessary in-person visits (saving the patient time and cost), and create new practice capacity.
