Finding the Right Balance in Virtual Care: Insights from Canadian Physicians

Canadian physicians’ perceptions on their use of and experience with virtual care offer important insights into finding the right balance in virtual care. Using data from the 2021 National Survey of Canadian Physicians conducted by Canada Health Infoway and the Canadian Medical Association (Canada Health Infoway and CMA 2021), we explored the mix of virtual care use by physicians, satisfaction with and challenges of virtual care and other perspectives around its continued use. We discuss how these data inform and enrich some of the key recommendations put forward by Falk (2022) in this issue.
