Health Workforce Innovations in Response to the COVID Pandemic
Zoom for Healthcare Expanded to Home Care, Long-Term Care, Public Health and Primary Care
Need to reduce exposure of patients and providers during the pandemic and maintain continuity of care even if services can't be offered in person for everyone.
Access to government licences for the virtual care platform, Zoom for Healthcare, is expanding to include home care, long- term care, primary care programs and public health nursing.
Since its launch on Thursday, April 9, more than 260 health-care providers (physicians, NPs and mental health / addition professionals) have now registered for a Zoom for Healthcare licence.
