How Do You Do Telehealth?

 

  • You will schedule a visit with your doctor or therapist.
  • JOI uses the Zoom software to conduct Telehealth appointments.
    • If you are on a desktop you do not need to have the app downloaded – the meeting will start in your web browser. However, you can download the app if you’d like.
    • If you are on a mobile device you will need to download the Zoom app on your device.
  • The office will send you an email with all the information you will need including the zoom link and meeting id.
  • When it is time for your appointment click on the meeting link from the email you were sent from the office.
  • You may need to create an account if you do not have one already.
  • Once in the meeting be sure to connect your audio and video.
  • Once the appointment is complete you may be able to schedule your next appointment before ending the meeting.
  • This is an excellent option for the review of a special test like an MRI.
