Health Standards Organization (HSO) and Accreditation Canada are providing complimentary access to a selection of resources to fight COVID-19.
Our Telemedicine/Virtual Health standard supports organizations to effectively facilitate the provision of exceptional care through remote health service delivery. The standard covers the entire continuum of health service delivery to optimize communications, education, and information transfers to and between the patients and healthcare professional. This provides organizations with the capacity to care for vulnerable groups in a timely manner and can be utilized in times of contagious diseases outbreaks to protect staff while continuing to care for patients.
Organizations implementing effective Telemedicine/Virtual Health Services will benefit from improved patient satisfaction and outcomes, patient flow efficiencies, and expand their influence on a wider range of communities.
You will receive a copy of the standard in PDF format shortly after you complete the transaction.
