Tele-doctors treat walk-in patients at 4 clinics

April 30, 2012 via CBCNews.ca -- Four Appletree Medical Group health clinics in Ottawa are using the internet to connect patients with doctors in Toronto for more timely treatment.
The Ontario government pays for the one-year pilot program, which works by using online video conferencing. Physicians can diagnose and treat patients without examining them in person, by assessing their visible symptoms, such as if they have a rash or burn.
But someone complaining of abdominal pain, for example, would have to be treated by a doctor in person.
Vijnken Shah came to an Appletree clinic with an eye infection and opted for the shorter telemedicine wait time.
"I really like this approach," Shah told CBC News. "It's very easy. I didn't find any difficulty. It was very clear and concise ... so it's a better approach."
