How to prepare for a Virtual Consultation
We understand that a virtual consultation is something new for all of us and there will be some hiccups as we go along.
To make thing easier, we hope that this blog would help.
A virtual consultation is also known as eVisit and moving forward we will use the word eVisit.
An eVisit is just like a regular appointment, the only difference is that you will see and speak with your doctor via video. Before you start the appointment your doctor will already have all relevant information about you to support your eVisit.
What do you need to do?
If you currently use email and access the internet, have a personal computer with a webcam, speaker and microphone, or a smartphone or tablet - you've already got all the skills and equipment you need.
How does it work?
The doctor arranging the eVisit will send you an email invitation, and might give you a Personal Identification Number (PIN)
Check your system or device ahead of time. For the best experience, we recommend using Chrome on your personal computer.
When it is time for your appointment, click the Start EVisit link. You will be asked to enter your name (and, if needed the PIN you were given).
A video window will open on your computer and your personal, private appointment will begin.
There is no costs to patients to do an eVisit.
Just like an in-office healthcare appointment your eVisit will be private and confidential. It can only be seen and heard by you and your healthcare provider.
