First Nations in Alberta launch telehealth project

First Nations leaders in Alberta say a telemedicine project will bring health care to more than 40 Native communities.

The Alberta First Nations Telehealth Change Management Project will link remove reserves with health care facilities. Some communities are already using the system to improve services.

"In some of the remote communities up north, they don't have physicians, nurses and some specialty services.This would give an opportunity for the First Nations to have that service via Telehealth," project manager Alayna Many Guns told The Calgary Herald.

The project is expected to cost $2 million to $5 million.
