On your first virtual visit, you will be prompted to allow Heartbeat Health access to your phone’s video functionality. To ensure you have no trouble connecting, prior to your visit you should check that you have a strong internet signal on your mobile device.
If you navigate to another app during your video call, your appointment will stay open and pause in the background.
The rating screen is used for internal purposes only. This information allows us to understand how the app is working for both patients and cardiologists.
Maximize your visit by:
- Having either a written or digital log of your blood pressure and, for some patients, weight.
- Compile a list of questions for your cardiologist beforehand.
- Make sure you have an updated medication list and which medications, if any, have caused side effects.
Having all of this information prior to your appointment ensures you have time to properly address all your concerns.
Wearables are electronic devices that can be worn. They track real-time information typically related to health and fitness, such as heart rate, heart rhythm, respiratory rate, and sleep and activity patterns. There are wearables you can order directly and some that need to be ordered by your physician. Properly used wearables can provide useful information to both you and your cardiologist during your virtual visit.
Make the most out of your video visit by:
- Taking notes. Sometimes it’s difficult to remember everything you reviewed with your cardiologist, so taking notes ensures you don’t miss anything.
- Address your most concerning questions first. Again, this keeps you from missing the opportunity to discuss the issues you are most worried about.
- Have any wearable numbers (such as blood pressure) handy for easy reference.
- Be open about whether or not you’ve been taking your medications and any other habits your cardiologist should be aware of. Physicians make recommendations to you based on this information– if you are not straightforward, it could negatively impact you.
Try summarizing the following in your own words: your understanding of your heart condition and your cardiologist’s recommendations and follow-up plan. This will allow your cardiologist to fill in any gaps, just in case. Lastly, let your doctor know how your virtual visit went and if there’s anything else that may have made it a better experience.
You do not need to download the app or create an account. All you need is your smartphone and reliable internet connectivity. You will receive a text message from Heartbeat Health, containing a link that works with the web browser on your phone. We support both iOS and Android.
You’ll receive a text message from a no-reply number (917-773-9289) inviting you to join a secure video call with a link. Tap on the link. Following this, you’ll see a screen asking for camera and microphone access — this is necessary so your provider can both hear and see you. Once you allow access, you’ll enter into the televisit where you will have your appointment with your cardiology provider.
