Zoom: Add a Co-Host or Panelist

Healthie's direct integration with HIPAA-compliant Zoom comes with several features and capabilities designed to create engaging video calls and webinars. Some of these features are automatically included within Healthie's direct integration with Zoom, others can be enabled for your account on request. You can review Zoom capabilities that are available (or not available) via Healthie here

Our integration with Zoom is available to all members on Plus Plan and above. By default this integration is active for your account (view your integrations). You do not need a personal Zoom account or subscription, and you do not need to take any action to enable Zoom.

Enable Co-Hosts

The Zoom co-host feature allows the host to share hosting privileges with another user, allowing the co-host to manage the administrative side of the meeting, such as managing participants or starting/stopping the recording. The host is the only user who can assign a co-host. There is no limitation on the number of co-hosts you can have in a meeting or webinar. To enable this feature for your account, email hello@gethealthie.com.

Using Co-Host in a Meeting

There are two ways that you can make a user a co-host.
During a meeting:

  1. Hover over a user's video.
  2. Click the ellipsis icon  .
  3. Click Make Co-Host.

Using the participants window:

  1. Click Participants  in the meeting controls at the bottom of the Zoom window.
  2. Hover over the name of the participant who is going to be a co-host, and choose More.
  3. Click Make Co-Host.

Once a participant has been made a co-host, they'll have access to the co-host controls.


At this time, Healthie's integration with Zoom does not allow for panelists to be added automatically but you are able to change a participant's role, including for panelists, once the meeting is started. 

You'll find more information on managing attendees and panelists here.
