Using FaceTime for Telemedicine
One of the most recognizable and accessible mobile video applications on the planet, Apple’s FaceTime is a popular choice for providers and patients alike. In order to use FaceTime for telemedicine, a qualifying healthcare provider and their patient must both have access to the mobile or desktop application.
SimpleVisit’s patented technology unlocks FaceTime to connect with just about any other video platform including Skype, Duo, Hangouts Team or Zoom. For example, a patient using FaceTime on an iPhone can now connect with a doctor who is using Skype on a desktop.
FaceTime makes it easy for Apple users to make video calls from their iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Since each Apple device is equipped with a built-in FaceTime app, there are no download requirements, which makes using FaceTime as simple as making a phone call. FaceTime connects over Wi-Fi or a cellular data connection, so users can make video calls from home or on the go. Protected with end-to-end encryption, FaceTime calls can securely connect to other FaceTime-compatible devices using the contact’s phone number or email address.
