Working Group on Defining Virtual Care in Canada

This working group developed two practical Canadian resources: A national, Virtual Care Maturity Model that will enable organizations, jurisdictions, and institutions to identify where they find themselves on the virtual health journey and what steps they need to take to improve their performance. An associated Virtual Care Lexicon to provide a foundational, common language for virtual care planning across and between jurisdictions and sectors so that we as Canadians are level-setting on a common terminology in this space and can ensure we are talking about the same concepts.
