This study examined the potential impact in Canada of continued, long-term use of telemedicine. Researchers found that, alongside the benefits from tools such as telemonitoring and digital health records, widespread use of teleconsultations could lead to significant benefits for patients, the economy and wider Canadian society. The findings directly contribute to the evidence base in telemedicine and virtual healthcare more generally.
