How To Schedule and Access Telehealth Appointments Using Coviu
This article will provide guidance on scheduling a Telehealth appointment, sending Coviu links to patients, and accessing the Coviu appointment link for both providers and patients.
It is important to ensure that the provider is properly configured before booking a Telehealth appointment, as failure to do so may result in being unable to book the appointment. If you receive a pop-up message, please refer to the instructions below to check your configuration.
To schedule a Telehealth appointment, navigate to your appointment book by selecting Appointments.
Create an appointment for the provider that has linked to your Coviu account, by selecting within a Time Slot or clicking New Appointment.
You will be presented with the New Appointment Pop-up, please fill in required patient information. Please ensure the patient has either a Mobile number or email address entered. This is to ensure they receive the Coviu Consultation link.
If you would like to send this link via email, please enable email for the provider by following instructions in this link. If you would like to SMS the patient, you will need to include the Coviu Merge field in your default SMS Template using the instructions linked below.
Select your Appointment Type (Telehealth), followed by Save.
NOTE: Please ensure you have configured a Telehealth appointment type following the instructions in this link.
The Telehealth consultation has now been scheduled and can be viewed from your appointment book.

Booking a Telehealth appointment creates a unique link for both the provider and the patient. The following provides instruction on how the provider and patient can access a Coviu Telehealth consultation.
To open the Coviu screen, navigate your appointment book and open the scheduled Telehealth Appointment.
