This is a tool which is included in the G Suite for all Gmail or Google account holders. Combined with the Google Calendar and Gmail, you can use Hangouts Meet and Hangouts Chat to conduct your patient consultations for tele-audiology. It’s a great step forward to bring your practice into the digital era.
All Google Calendar meeting invitations have a link to join a Hangouts Meeting. By clicking on the link, you and the patient will have exclusive access to a platform where you can video call, conference call, or simply chat to one another for the duration that you are both connected.
If video calls are not available with your patient, you can use the chat tool as a communication channel with them. An even better idea concerning tele-audiology, is that if your patient is busy with the audiometery test and cannot listen at the time, Chat can be a way to write out messages of instruction to them.
