VirtualClinic+ is a telehealth platform that connects patients to physicians through video, phone and secure messaging. Uniquely, VirtualClinic+ supports both long-term care with family practice visits while also allowing physicians to provide care for the estimated 4.8 million Canadians without a family doctor. WELL’s telehealth solution offers Canadians an alternative to lengthy waiting room visits and provides better access to care for patients who are limited in their travel and mobility. On the VirtualClinic+ platform, patients can now schedule an appointment online at virtual.wellclinics.ca and connect directly with a physician via phone, tablet, or computer without the need to download or configure an app.

Although VirtualClinic+ has been an important addition to WELL’s existing clinic network, the recent global pandemic has accelerated the need for distance-based care across the country. VirtualClinic+ is a tool that helps healthcare practitioners both inside and out of the WELL network address these challenges, and is designed to support continuity of care, improve accessibility to quality care, and ultimately drive better health outcomes.
VirtualClinic+ is fully integrated with the OSCAR EMR system to ensure a seamless experience for physicians offering telehealth. Over the past several months WELL’s product development and clinic transformation teams have been working internally with our WELL EMR Group as well as our external technology service providers to develop VirtualClinic+. This way, VirtualClinic+ provides the best experience both for the patients and practitioners who use it.
