What is Telehealth?  

Telehealth is a means of delivering health care services and education through interactive videoconferencing.

Using secure video conferencing equipment, teleheatlh enables a remote patient to 'visit' an out-of-town health care provider from their home community without having to travel. 

Telehealth in the Saskatoon Health Region is a partner in the Telehealth Saskatchewan program.  We connect to sites within our health network, as well as other provincial, national, and international locations.
