To take full advantage of your telehealth visit and to help the provider evaluate your condition, there are several steps you can take to prepare:
- Make a list of your current symptoms, when they started and how severe they are.
- For instance, do you have difficulty breathing or pain in your chest?
- Do you have fatigue? If so, how severe and for how long?
- Do you have stomach pain or diarrhea?
- Keep track of your data. Do you have a temperature? If so, what is it, and has it changed? Do you have a blood pressure monitor? If so, what is your blood pressure today?
- Are others in your home ill? If so, for how long?
- Make a list of any chronic conditions you have and list of medication you are on.
- Have you been tested for COVID-19? If so, what were the results?
- If you are a patient of the health system you’re using for this telehealth visit, have your medical record number or other identifying information available so they can look up your Electronic Medical Record.
- In case you are asked to go to the Emergency Room or clinic, make sure you know the location of the closest one.
Also in preparation, make sure your technology is ready:
- Are you going to use your phone, tablet or computer for the visit?
- Is the device fully charged or plugged in?
- Do you have a reliable internet connection?
- Does your health system use an app for telehealth visits? If so, download it in advance.
- Make sure you have a comfortable place to sit for the visit and that your camera gives a clear view of you for the provider.
- Have paper and a pen ready to take notes during the call.
During the call:
- Be aware that there may be a high volume of calls, so you may have to wait to be connected.
- Talk clearly, making sure the provider can hear you. Make sure they can see you through your camera.
- Give identifying information about yourself or your family member.
- Clearly present your symptoms.
- Answer the provider’s questions as clearly and to the point as possible.
- Make notes of the provider’s recommendations and ask questions if something is unclear.
