Online Visits with Your Healthcare Provider
Telemedicine Option Now Offered at Chesapeake Health Care
CHC Telemedicine brings convenience and flexibility to your health care — provided by your CHC providers, at your location, with no extra cost to you.
During this time of social distancing, a telehealth appointment may be a good option for you!
Chesapeake Health Care uses Microsoft Teams to securely communicate and conduct remote appointments and sessions for patients. Microsoft Teams is a free service and is very easy to use.
Download the Microsoft Teams App
Microsoft Teams is available on a variety of devices, including Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. Get Teams on all your devices by visiting teams.microsoft.com/downloads or searching for “Microsoft Teams” in the Apple or Google Play Store.
Joining an Appointment with Teams
Before your appointment, you will receive an email letting you know a Microsoft Teams meeting has been set for your appointment time. A few minutes before your scheduled appointment time click or tap the “Join Microsoft Teams Meeting” link in the email. Your Microsoft Teams app will open and ask if you would like to ‘Join as a guest’ or ‘Sign in and join.’ You do not need to create an account; you can join as a guest.
While waiting for your healthcare provider to join, your microphone will be muted, and the camera will be disabled. Once the Chesapeake Health Care provider joins the meeting, you will be presented with options to enable your camera. You and your healthcare provider will be able to see and talk to one another in a secure video chat.
