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.
