We're lucky to live in a time where technology can be used for a variety of different tasks—including a visit with your health care team. Vancouver Coastal Health is committed to increasing the number of virtual health care visits in our region. To help facilitate this, we've put together some resources below to help support you in your next virtual visit.
A helpdesk is available for patients needing support connecting to their virtual health visit. The toll-free number is available Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Have you received an invitation from your health-care provider regarding a virtual visit via Zoom—our video conferencing solution? Please see information below on how to get started:
If your visit has been identified by your clinician as appropriate for a virtual visit, you'll receive an email from your health-care provider with next steps.
Join Zoom from web browser or download the Zoom app to your mobile device. Join a Zoom test meeting to make sure it's working.
Prior to your virtual appointment, review the virtual patient notice.
Once your appointment has been confirmed, you'll receive a second email from your health-care provider with a link to join the Zoom meeting.
