Effective primary care coverage is essential during the COVID-19 outbreak and expanding virtual care will allow physicians to provide care remotely and limit the possibility of transmission.
A webinar was held on Thursday, March 19 to provide a physician-led overview of the DTO Virtual Care Quick Start Guide and a Q&A session about planning to treat patients remotely. A video recording of the webinar session can be found here and a pdf version of the webinar here.
In response to increasing support requests, and to hear from doctors about their needs and ideas, DTO is hosting virtual care drop-in sessions Thursdays from 7:15 - 8:00 a.m. Click here to join.
The DTO and PSP are mobilizing a network of physicians and MOAs as well as the Practice Support Program (PSP) Regional Support Team members to provide clinics with virtual at-the-elbow coaching services to implement virtual care in their practice.
For more information or to request one-on-one support from a PSP regional support team coach or peer mentor, please email DTOinfo@doctorsofbc.ca.
The GPSC's March 30 webinar has been amended. Instead of covering case-based billing scenarios, GPSC billing experts will now walk through the April 1 changes, any COVID-19 related fee changes that affect family physicians, and Pathways tools for COVID-19 care. We will reschedule a case-based learning session at a later date.
