Telehealth

Telehealth uses new information and communication technologies in order to improve the delivery of health services. This helps provide First Nations communities with quality services and the care they require.  

Among other things, specialists may make a remote diagnosis and provide advice on treatment follow-up. It is possible to seek medical advice through video conferencing, or send images by Internet, such as photos or x-rays, or other tests such as laboratory results.  

The First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Health and Social Services Commission is currently working on various telehealth projects and may provide support to any community that wishes to develop and implement such projects.
