I use Doxy for telehealth sessions. To participate, check that you have a laptop, mobile phone or tablet that connects to a stable wifi connection that is equipped with a microphone, camera and speakers/headphones.
See info below about Zoom and how to join
Positioning & Lighting: Keep in mind for telehealth it’s helpful to have good light in the room (usually with the light coming toward you rather than behind you), with a table or chair nearby that you can put your screen on in front of you so I can see you well. I recommend joining by computer or laptop although you may use your cell phone.
Photos & Videos: Please note that you may need to take photos or videos during the session to send them to me in real time, so keep your cell phone or other device handy!
Equipment: Please have any equipment you’ll need for the session available nearby.
Visitors: Anyone in your home is welcome to be part of the visit whether by listening or taking notes even if they are not pictured on the screen. Please announce who is there, and they’ll need to state their full name at the start of the session. Note that no recordings of the session are permitted without permission.
Here’s how you can join via Doxy:
