Telehealth Overview

Alli Center is pleased to offer telehealth appointments. Our telehealth vendor, Kareo, offers an encrypted, HIPAA compliant videoconferencing solution.

What to Expect

Before your appointment, you will be sent a link with a uniquely generated address connecting you to a video room, which can be accessed with your internet browser. If you have not received a link for your appointment 45 minutes before it is scheduled to start, please call our office at 319-804-9312 for assistance. You can also search your email inbox and spam/junk mail folder for the word "telehealth". The link you need to use will start with:

Technology Requirements

Participants can use any computer, tablet, or smart phone. The device needs a stable internet connection, camera, microphone, and supported browser.

Participants can join using a cell connection; however, Wi-Fi is more reliable overall, and helps ensure the participants aren't driving through bad service areas.

When you launch your appointment on a desktop or laptop, click the Allow button to permit using your microphone and camera. When using a smartphone, you may need to click a button to request permission to use the camera and microphone.

Bandwidth Requirements: For one-to-one conversations, at least 2.5 mbps download and 2 mbps upload speeds are required to maintain a connection. For multiple participants, at least 3.2 mbps download and upload speeds are required. Most 4G LTE data connections exceed this requirement.
