Virtual Care Program

Virtual Care Visits

During the coronavirus era, we have been forced to learn how to provide physiotherapy services through video-links with our patients at home. The feedback we’ve been getting from these patients has been very positive. In certain situations, virtual visits are just as effective as in-clinic visits. Remember that physiotherapy is primarily a movement-based profession, where we teach you and show you how to move properly to support an injury and reduce pain. It’s amazing how much of that is currently being done effectively through virtual care.

 Our Virtual Care platform meets the highest privacy and security standards. Our physiotherapists can connect with you through a range of devices (*see list below) at your home to provide the following:

  • Review and updates of your exercise program.
  • Education on management of an existing condition.
  • Progression of your post-operative rehab program.
  • Advice on management of new injuries for existing and new patients.

Here is some more information about what to expect with Virtual Care. Our parent company Lifemark Health Group has been conducting more than 2000 virtual care visits per day in Canada. That’s really something!

Billing for Virtual Care

Many Health Benefits companies are permitting regular physiotherapy billing for Virtual Care. In fact, many insurers are very happy that we have this as an option and are encouraging us to use virtual care to continue assisting patients. Note that if you are paying privately or through Extended Health Benefits, standard physiotherapy rates apply, and there is no added cost for virtual care.
