Video Conferencing

North York General Hospital participates in the Ontario Telehealth Network (OTN) – the largest two-way network in the world using video-conferencing. We participate in over 700 video-conferencing education events each year.

Video-conferencing is used extensively for rounds, seminars, workshops, lectures and other educational events as both a host and participating as a remote site. In addition, video-conferencing is used for patient consults to remote areas and for meetings.

Video conferenced events at NYGH are for our staff and physicians and require a login.

If you do not have the login information please contact your department coordinator or the Centre for Education at or 416-756-6929.
