A new health-program could save you money and time in the Kootenay Boundary.

Telehealth video conferencing technology allows patients to connect with distant specialists without leaving town.

Communications Manager Paul Edney with the Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice says you just have to ask!

Edney adds that it’s received a positive response so far, and can save you money!

The project is spearheaded by BC’s Shared Care Initiative

It has been implemented into maternity care, urology, internal medicine, general surgery, anaesthesiology, and pediatrics.
