CHIEF Executive Forum leaders recognized and discussed the challenges and opportunities associated with the recent accelerated deployment of virtual care services across Canada.

Today’s panel will catalyze discussion on the draft National Lexicon to describe virtual care services across Canada and the emerging Maturity Model framework.
