Walk-in and scheduled virtual sessions for healthcare providers

Information for Patients about Virtual Care

COVID-19 is impacting Canada’s healthcare system. In order to protect patients and health care providers from the virus, more health care options are being offered to help limit the number of people who need to be seen in-person. Many clinics at North York General Hospital (NYGH) now offer telephone and virtual appointments to care for patients safety. NYGH has video and audio technologies for most patient visits, which avoids patients needing to come in-person. In some cases, your health care team may ask you to visit a hospital or other Cloud healthcare facility if necessary, for a physical examination.

Remote Patient Monitoring Virtual Care Program – New

North York General has launched a new virtual care program aimed at protecting patients and preventing hospital readmissions through remote monitoring. The new North York Toronto Health Partners (NYTHP) CareConnect program utilizes an app called Vivify, which helps monitor two patient populations: Depression and Anxiety for Mental Health and Falls Prevention for Frail and Elderly. 

The purpose of this new virtual care application is to decrease the number of recurring visits to the Emergency Department through enhanced symptom monitoring and rapid care for both those with mental health concerns and frail and elderly patients who are more prone to falls.

Virtual Care Survey

Information Services is seeking feedback from patients who have used virtual patient care to conduct a clinical appointment. The responses provided will be anonymous and confidential and will only be used to assess how virtual care at North York General Hospital can be improved. Understanding the user experience is essential, thank you for completing the survey.
