What is Tele-health physiotherapy?
.
Tele-health physiotherapy, also known as virtual care, is the delivery of professional physiotherapy services at a distance, using telecommunications (videoconferencing) technology. Tele-health physiotherapy relates to all aspects of patient care including the patient interview, physical assessment and diagnosis, treatment, exercise prescription, and education. Physiotherapists that provide tele-health adhere to all existing practice requirements, including the scope of practice of the profession, the standards of professional practice, the code of ethics, as well as any provincial and federal laws that guide practice.
.
Will my insurance cover a Tele-health physiotherapy appointment?.
..
We recommend that you call your insurance company to find out the details of your plan. Companies that previously required a physician’s referral for physiotherapy services likely no longer do, given new legislation that has been put in place during this time of pandemic.
.
How do I know if I will benefit from a Tele-health physiotherapy appointment?
.
Talk to your physiotherapist to determine if your treatment goals can be effectively met through tele-health physiotherapy.
.
What equipment do I need to have a Tele-health physiotherapy appointment?
.
You will need a laptop or tablet or phone with a screen, camera and microphone. A phone consultation is also an option if the above are not available to you.
.
How secure and private are services provided by Tele-health?
.
Our Tele-health provider uses 128-bit GCM encryption – the same standard most banks use to protect your financial information.

.

.

Stay healthy and well.  
We look forward to connecting with you all by phone or tele-health and we look forward to seeing you when we reopen our clinic doors.
