Recent blogs have addressed the issue of retirement. For some, “retirement” may be a four-letter word. But it’s not, and is, in fact, a stepping-stone to your life’s next chapter.

StehoscopeIf you’re considering retirement but still want to keep your hand in healthcare, consider telemedicine (medical diagnosis and patient care delivered via telephone or videoconference).

Telemedicine couldn’t be more convenient, since it can be done part-time or full-time, from home.

And with so many ongoing technological advancements, telemedicine is easier than ever. All it takes is a telephone and a reliable Internet connection.

Telemedicine opportunities abound — for example, in remote and under populated areas, where climate and geography pose challenges. In Ontario, the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre’s telemedicine site is one of Canada’s busiest.

The Ontario Telemedicine Network, a leader in this area, provides patient care for strokes, traumas and burns, among other services.

Out west, the College of Physicians & Surgeons of Alberta’s website provides a gateway to telemedicine opportunities.

Since 1997, RSRS — the only physician-managed, fully compliant storage facility in Canada — has assisted hundreds of doctors with their medical-practice closures and record-storage obligations.

We offer a complete medical-practice closure consulting service, and in most cases for Ontario Primary Care Doctors, we can offer full record scanning and storage services and more, at NO CHARGE.

Our practice-closure services include patient notification, patient record transfers and retrievals, and assistance with equipment sale and donation.

Call RSRS today at 1-888-563-3732 or visit our website.
