“Getting the right patient to the right place at the right time, every time should be the goal of the triage system and triage team.”
Dr. Cy Frank, Orthopaedic Surgeon (1949-2015)
In the absence of a COVID-19 vaccine, we now live in a “virtual first” delivery model of non-emergency healthcare.
TeleOrthopaedics.com is intended to leverage internet-based technologies to improve the delivery of evidence-based care in musculoskeletal conditions.
A telehealth appointment is not considered a substitute for a face-to-face appointment but is considered better than no appointment at all – especially for those living in communities without easy access to a local orthopaedic physiotherapist or surgeon.
If you’re an orthopaedic physiotherapist or surgeon providing telehealth services, I would like to invite you to join our directories of online providers. Contact me
