What we used to believe has already been proved wrong. The world’s best healthcare systems have been struggling to handle the infusion of coronavirus patients. Many industry leaders and visionary entrepreneurs believe that technologizing our healthcare system is the only workable way we have to lock horns with any kind of pandemic.
Not only during the pandemic, but our healthcare professionals including DOC, RN, RPN, and physicians are facing many challenges in long-term care homes.
Without healthcare technology, they can look after each patient individually, but it costs them a lot of time. Manual collaboration between DOC, nurses, physicians, and pharmacies also results in human errors and less productivity.
And most importantly, while prescribing patients, nurses and physicians do not have access to the patient’s medical history.
Because of this many reasons, long-term care homes that are accomplishing LTC operations with conventional methods cannot provide ‘quality care’ to patients. However, technology has answers to these challenges.
A virtual healthcare solution that brings DOC, nurses, RN, RPN, pharmacies, patients, and physicians under the same roof virtually can let each of them derive many benefits which eventually actualizes the connected care and quality care.
In this blog, we will discuss the best virtual healthcare solution available in Ontario for long-term care homes. We will share the groundbreaking features of the virtual healthcare solution and how it enables you to ease LTC operations by eliminating all paper-based processes.
But before all of this, let’s first understand the difference between a virtual healthcare solution and a telemedicine solution.
The crucial difference between telemedicine solution and virtual healthcare solution in Ontario
Both the telemedicine solution and the virtual healthcare solution are capable of addressing long-term care homes’ challenges by digitizing the healthcare process. However, there are significant differences between these two and you before modernizing your long-term care home should know the differences to meet your unique requirements, effectively and economically.
What is a telemedicine solution?
Talking about the telemedicine solution, it facilitates physicians to talk to patients via video conferencing. It also supports the voice call and chat communication methods.
This is the best solution to treat patients remotely. However, the telemedicine solution does not digitize all LTC operations as the core purpose of it is to just connect patients and physicians remotely.

What is a virtual healthcare solution?
Whereas, the virtual healthcare solution is the broad term. It does not only accommodate the functionalities of telemedicine solution, but it also lets nurses and physicians to write e-prescription, list patients, access patients’ medical history, enables DOC (Director of Care) to validate the care provided by nurses & physicians and allows pharmacies to get prescriptions through eFax.
Overall, it addresses the challenges of each healthcare professional working in long-term care homes.
So, now when you know the differences between a virtual healthcare solution and a telemedicine solution, let’s discuss our best virtual healthcare solution in Ontario and its features.

We have engineered virtual healthcare solution, targeting all clinicians to get ultimate output
Before developing the virtual healthcare tool or solution in Ontario, our team has aggressively studied the LTC operations and challenges of clinicians who carry out these LTC operations. Our team has decoded the challenges of clinicians working in long-term care homes and curated an extensive feature set, addressing the requirements of all clinicians.

DOC (Director of Care):
- From the single dashboard, the Director of Care can view all tasks or to-do performed by nurses and physicians.

How our virtual healthcare solution is better than other solutions?
Though many virtual healthcare solutions are available in the market, not all are armed with fundamental features. And since they are lacking fundamental features, deploying such virtual healthcare solutions means wasting money and deploying nothing!
Talking about our virtual healthcare solution -Writi, it does not only accommodate all fundamental as well as advanced features, but our expertise in networking, cloud & data security and our insightful consultation & proactive support service help long-term care homes to get everything out of the virtual healthcare solution.
Unique features which are uniquely available in our solution:
- Patients’ medical history: Without this feature, physicians and nurses have to fight an uphill battle to write an effective prescription for the patients. But in our solution Writi, the solution automatically or manually saves the patients’ medical history in digital bundles.
- Work report of nurses: In many solutions, DOC cannot track the tasks completed by the nurses. But in Writi, DOC can track all tasks or to-do done by nurses from the single dashboard.
