Scheduling Video Calls

To schedule a video call appointment, select Video as the appointment method when booking the appointment.

Allowing Video Calls in Settings

To allow Phone or Video as a method for each appointment type use the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Settings

  2. Select Appointment Types

  3. Choose the desired appointment

  4. Under General and Visibility, toggle the available methods ON (blue) or OFF (grey)

The Pharmacist Experience

  1. See which appointments are scheduled as virtual by hovering over the appointment on the Appointments Tab when it is in Week View or listed next to the name of the appointment when it is in List View. The method of the appointment is listed in brackets

  2. Start the call by opening the patient profile and pressing Start Call in the top right of the consultation screen. This sends the patient an email and/or SMS with a link to join the call

Tip: The video call will open in a new tab - open the tab in a new window in order to see the call and documentation at the same time.

3. After completing the call, log the status:

  • Call Finished - The virtual appointment was completed successfully; upon completion, call details will be logged automatically.

  • No Show - If the patient does not show up, send them an email prompting them to schedule another time.

The Patient Experience

  1. The patient selects the Video method when booking an appointment

  2. The patient receives email or SMS notifications (e.g. 1 day, 15 min) to remind them how to best prepare for their appointment

  3. When the provider clicks Start Call, a link will be sent to the patient inviting them to join (the patient will not be able to join the call until the provider has started it)
