AHS Virtual Health

Quality Virtual Care - Anytime, Anywhere

Virtual care provides an opportunity for care continuity throughout the spectrum of care, supporting individuals who are in self-isolation, unable to attend an AHS clinic or facility, living in rural and remote areas, or when the patient and provider cannot be in the same location.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, AHS has expanded access to healthcare services through the addition of virtual tools to better meet the care needs of patients, including:

  • Implementing Zoom
  • Assessing clinical priority for ambulatory care visits
  • Developing self-help tools, guided webinars, and supported advice for some program areas to help integrate technology

We want to hear from Albertans, physicians, patients and families, healthcare providers, and AHS Advisory Council members, to help inform our long term virtual care strategy to support the future of healthcare in Alberta.

Share your stories here

We want to hear stories about innovating using technology during COVID and beyond. The COVID-19 pandemic required a lot of people, programs and physicians to pivot how they communicate, provide care and services, and work together. Share your stories about innovation in healthcare to inform and inspire others.

During COVID restrictions in the Spring, I was connected with Stephanie, PT by Zoom from Rehab Oncology. I was experiencing a lot of pain and felt helpless because so many services were restricted or closed. She was able to identify the source of my pain and give me therapeutic exercises to resolve the issues. Thank you Stephanie.
