Thunder Bay has become the first city in Northern Ontario to bring a Tele Home Care program into action.
This will be the fifth such program in all of Ontario.
The program is being run by the Northwest Community Care Access Centre. It provides patients with chronic conditions the option of receiving medical attention at home, without having to visit a hospital.
Using a simple device that's loaned to patients in the program, they can wake up in the morning and run simple tests themselves.
Then a registered nurse will review the results and provide remote monitoring and health coaching sessions.
The program has been running for four weeks and already has 12 of their 160 spots filled.
