What is TeleHealth?
TeleHealth is rehabilitation services using electronic communication technologies as an
alternative to face to face interactions. During this COVID 19 pandemic, TeleHealth can be a
safe alternative for patients to keep in touch with their therapist when an in person appointment
is not possible due to safety concerns and guidelines laid out by Canadian government and
Patients can expect to receive the same safe quality care as an in person appointment with their
therapist. Therapists are expected to meet the same standards of practice regardless of how the
services are delivered.
What are the risks of receiving care via TeleHealth?
The risks of receiving physiotherapy or chiropractic care will be outlined in the patient consent
form you will sign prior to your appointment. The only additional risk associated with TeleHealth
relate to the privacy of your personal health information and your personal safety. Your therapist
will use appropriate technology in a proper setting to ensure that your personal information is
kept secure and private.
