There are a number of things you can do as a Provider to ensure that your Session goes smoothly. While you don't have to download anything to use Telehealth we do recommend the following:
Operating Systems & Browser Options
Just like any other program, Telehealth is optimized to work in certain devices and versions of a web browser. We recommend that you use the latest versions of your desired browser. Below are the minimum browser requirements:
- MacOS Sierra, Safari 10.1+ and the latest version of Chrome or Firefox
- Android 4.4+, latest version of Chrome or Firefox
- Windows 7+, latest version of Chrome or Firefox
- IOS 11+, Safari 11+
Test your Network Connection
Once you are using a compatible device and browser, it can be helpful to test your connection. This will assess whether your internet connection is stable enough for Telehealth. You can do this just before you join a Telehealth Session.
- Join the Telehealth Session from your Schedule
- Scroll down and click Test My Connection button.
Audio & Visuals Issues
If you or your Client are not able to see or hear the other, there are two things you may want to check.
- Ensure that the correct audio and visuals are selected. When you join a session, on the first screen you will want to select what microphone, speaker and camera will be used.
NOTE: If you are using headphones, or anything other than your default computer connections, be sure to select them here.
Be sure that you enabled your browser for your microphone and camera when prompted. The first time you use Telehealth in a browser you will be prompted to enable your microphone and camera.
Connection test results display.
If your connection isn't strong, you can try some of these to see if it helps.
- Unplug any devices that aren't working and plug them back in.
- Restart your device if time allows.
- Close any other programs or browsers that may be running at the same time.
If you are still having trouble connecting to your Telehealth Session, contact Support.
