The Renfrew County Virtual Triage and Assessment Centre  is a new pandemic healthcare service to reduce the demand on Emergency Departments and provide Renfrew County residents, who do not have a family physician or cannot access their family physician, with the appropriate level of care when they have any health concern (including concerns related to COVID-19).

Any Renfrew County resident who has a health concern (including concerns related to COVID-19) and does not have a family physician or cannot access their family physician can access care and support through the Renfrew County Virtual Triage and Assessment Centre.
 

The RCVTAC is a virtual solution that allows physicians, nurse practitioners and/or community paramedics to assess and manage health concerns in multiple ways depending on a person’s needs. This includes:
 

  • Phone appointments
  • Video appointments
  • In-home assessments and diagnostic testing by community paramedics
  • Remote monitoring and alerting and if necessary, escalation to a designated team of physicians and allied health professionals for the management of patients with COVID-19
  • Referral to other services including mental health support
     

Residents can access the Centre by calling 1-844-727-6404. This service is covered by OHIP with a valid health card. For more information please refer to the website at www.rcvtac.ca
