Now lets just get to the point to what you really need to know…
Here’s a quick checklist to make sure your dialdoc virtual visit is a truly positive experience and free of technical glitches.
1. Use a good quality webcam.
Virtual visits work best when your Dialdoc doctor can actually see you clearly. This means you need to use a webcam that allows a good quality vision interaction.
In case you don’t have a webcam, there isn’t a reason for you to worry. The good thing is that pretty much all devices and computers now come with high quality integrated webcams.
2. Set up the camera at eye level.
Weather you’re just using an integrated or any type of external camera, try to set it up approximately to eye level interaction. This will actually make it easier for your doctor to see and engage with you even better.
3. Use quality sound equipment.
Most of the computers and quality cameras have a good built-in microphone and speakers. Test them out by using a recording program on your computer or just by making a call or video chat to one of your friends.
Can the other person clearly hear you?
Do you need to talk more loudly or just get closer to the mic?
Can you actually hear them ok?
4. Set Your notifications.
At Dialdoc we offer the option to get notifications via email, phone, and text. So all you have to do is decide which one best work for you and make sure to set it up.
PREPARING FOR YOUR VIRTUAL VISIT
1. Test out your webcam.
Before you start your virtual visit with your dialdoc primary care doctor, make sure the webcam is property working. Open up the webcam via your control panel or just a video app like Skype to test it out.
2. Make sure your volume’s on.
All this little things are simple but we all make these little mistakes very often. Check your sound to be sure it isn’t muted. You can actually open a video online or a song to test out your audio.
3. Test your microphone.
Try out your microphone. Open a recording program to test, or just look for the microphone device within your control panel to make sure is working properly.
4. Plug in your computer or mobile device.
The last thing you want during your Dialdoc visit is for your power to die. Kindly, make sure the computer or mobile device you’re using is either fully charged or plugged in before the visit starts.
5. Use a wired Internet connection.
It is completely ok to do a virtual visit over a wifi connection. But your device is less likely to lose the connection if it’s directly connected to a regular cable.
If you’re using your mobile device and some how you experience bandwidth issues, try connecting to your home’s wifi. We recommended using a connection of at least 3mbps.
6. Closed unnecessary programs.
Having too many other things running on any of the devices your trying to do the visit can actually strain the memory and reduce the quality of the video chat. So before you start your Dialdoc visit try closing all the unnecessary programs as possible.
Here’s a good point… If you haven’t restarted your computer in a while or closed any programs you may want to do that.
7. Use the right browser.
Dialdoc works 100% better using the following platforms! Chrome and Firefox, so we highly recommended using these two particular browsers for better connectivity results.
8. Dress appropriately.
Your Dialdoc primary care doctor will be able to see you, so make sure you’re dressed properly.
9. Find a quite space.
Either if you’re at home, work or anywhere in Arizona, try finding a quite space where you aren’t likely to get interrupted. You’ll feel more comfortable with more privacy and you’ll be less likely to be distracted during t your virtual visit.
10. Adjust the lighting.
Before you start your virtual visit, test out your lighting. It is your image clear? Is the picture too dark? Try turning any overhead lights and blocking the lights from the window, which can lead to too much background light in the video.
11. Note everything you’d like to ask or discuss with your doctor.
Take a minute or two before starting your Dialdoc virtual visit to write down any questions you may have for the doctor.
