Schedule video consultations at any time that suits your practice workflow. Staff can work from home at times that are more convenient for them. Available appointment times are managed by you.
The Medechat widget on your practice website allows pet owners to register and easily schedule video consults with your vets. Vet and pet owner receive a text or email confirming the time.
At the scheduled time, the consulting vet and the pet owner join the session. The pet is examined by the Vet during the video chat. Payments are made securely through the platform by credit card.
The Vet completes a history template (customisable to your preference) which is e-mailed to your practice admin for attachment or copy into the patient file in your PMS. The video consultation is recorded and archived.
The pet owner is emailed a summary and a follow up appointment is made if required in-clinic or via Medechat. If a clinic visit is required, a voucher may be issued to offset the cost of an in-clinic examination within a specified time.
A video consultation can't replace a hands-on examination of an ill or injured pet, but is useful for assessing remote patients, triage after hours as well as behaviour, skin and post surgery consultations.
