Creating a telehealth appointment
When creating an appointment, select "Telehealth" as appointment location.
Joining a Scheduled Video Chat Session
If you scheduled an appointment within Healthie, a green bar will appear at the top of your screen, and your client's screen, 10 minutes before a session begins. Simply click on the green bar, and both of you will be taken to your room.
Note: If you do not create the appointment within Healthie, the telehealth bar will not show. For example, even if you have your Google Calendar synced to Google, you need to create the appointment within Healthie, for the green bar to appear.
Initiating a (not-scheduled) Video Chat Session
Providers always have the ability to start a video chat and invite a particular client, even if there was no previously scheduled appointments, as long as that client has a Healthie account.
There are two ways for providers to initiate a video chat:
Option 1: From the General Clients Tab, select "..." and then Telehealth
Option 2: Within a client's profile, click the video chat button on their profile picture
