EDITORIAL: E-doctoring, digital medicine long overdue in Nova Scotia

The Chronicle Herald

Perhaps it’s a sign of a truce between the provincial government and its doctors.

On Thursday, the province rolled out details of a pilot project that has the potential to more fairly compensate physicians, improve the efficiency of patient care and bring our health-care system into the 21st century, all at once.

Government Launches Technology Incentive

Doctors Nova Scotia

Government is investing more than $4 million to support family doctors to communicate with patients by telephone and through e-health services. 

“This new technology incentive will encourage more doctors to use these tools, and give patients more access and control over their own care,” said Health and Wellness Minister Randy Delorey.

Family doctors who take part in the technology incentive pilot program can receive up to $12,000 a year to communicate with their patients by telephone or through MyHealthNS.

Antigonish surgeon warns red tape could lead to doctor burnout

CBC Halifax

A doctor in Antigonish, N.S., is calling for better collaboration to improve the locum system in Nova Scotia.

Dr. Lukas Wasserman is a general surgeon at St. Martha's Regional Hospital. Ordinarily there are three surgeons on staff, but since March they've been down to two. That means Wasserman and his colleague take turns being on call every other weekend.
