The update brings the ability to now select a healthcare provider you’ve seen before, while you also have an option to pick a healthcare provider based on their gender as well.
Telus says “it is our goal to help you take care of your health and well-being so we’ve made some exciting innovations within the app.”
Also new is what Telus says is a more user-friendly layout for its smartphone users.
Telus Health MyCare allows users to see a doctor, mental health councillor or dietician from the app via video call, plus also get prescriptions prescribed and delivered through the app.
The app and service is offered in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. Those without provincial coverage need to pay $70 per virtual physician consultation.
For doctor consultations in B.C., residents are covered under the Medical Services Plan (MSP) when using the Telus Health MyCare app. With doctor shortages and clinics closing in the province, the app offers an alternative to waiting in lines to see a physician.
