Haliburton Highlands Health Services wants to make it easier for patients to access medical specialists.

President and C.E.O. Carolyn Plummer says health services wants to update its tele-medicine equipment.

Plummer also says the tele-medicine program is one of the most popular services H.H.H.S. offers.

The Haliburton Highlands Health Services launched its Cash for Care Lottery yesterday, and the money raised from that will go towards new tele-medicine equipment.

Tele-medicine allows patients to meet with specialists without having to leave the county.
