HOW IT WORKS

OTN’s room-based videoconference systems enable providers in health and health-affiliated organizations to connect in three ways:

Clinical Videoconferences

  • Direct: health care provider and patient
  • Indirect: healthcare providers discussing specific patients and making a plan of care

Administrative Videoconferences

  • Team meetings between different sites. For example

Educational Videoconferences

  • Open: posted on the Learning Centre and Ncompass Calendar
  • Closed: Invited participants only
