Tips & Tricks
Preparing For Your
We’d like to support our patients in making telehealth visits as easy and as valuable as possible. Please review the tips below in order to best prepare for your visit.
1. Choose your tech.
It is helpful to decide ahead of time what device you may use for your telemedicine visit. 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time you will receive a link via text. The link will open the appointment directly in the browser of your smartphone without requiring you to download any additional apps or login to any accounts. If this method does not work for you, then you can use a computer, laptop, or tablet to sign into your patient portal either through our website, www.rwwc.com, or the app 'healow' to attend your appointment. Having a reliable internet connection is also important.
2. Set-up prior to your appointment.
No specific apps or downloads are required for Rittenhouse Women’s Wellness Center telehealth visits, however if you are referred to a specialist, their setup may differ from ours. You should ask for a contact number in case there is a problem during your telemedicine visit. Doing this will reduce the stress of managing new technology during the actual telemedicine visit.
3. Choose a quiet, private place.
Find a place for your appointment that is quiet so you can hear your provider, and they in turn can hear you. This will reduce distractions and interruptions, making your appointment more productive.
