Safer Access to Medications

Research shows that a growing number of Canadians can now go online to book appointments, request prescription renewals, and view their lab test results and other health information. Many are also taking advantage of telehomecare programs, which ease anxiety and make care more efficient for patients with chronic conditions. Watch this video to find out more.
