Reacts is up and running

We are very proud of how our physicians have embraced a new online platform (Reacts) to provide virtual care. Prior to COVID-19  a small group of physicians were using OTN to provide virtual care. However, with so many physicians pivoting to virtual care as a result of the pandemic, a new platform was required to support to load. SEAMO and Kingston Health Sciences Centre have been working together to implement this new tool. 

Many of our specialists have jumped on board and we have the numbers to prove it.
