There are many reasons you may need to have someone else join you and your patient during a visit. They may want a family member or caregiver to be involved, or they may need a translator. Perhaps you’d like another provider to be present. This can be done with the Add Attendees feature.
Up to six attendees (for a total of eight people) may be invited to join during the visit. They do not need to download the eVisit app.
