Configuring Online Booking for Telemedicine
Contact CFL to enable the Telemedicine Option in Online booking
For seamless integration to VetLinkSQL, the telemedicine plug-in for online booking requires two areas to be set up. One is the online booking portal and the other, the zoom meeting platform. A paid zoom subscription account is required for this integration to work seamlessly. Subscribe at www.zoom.com.
Online Booking Portal Setup
VetLinkSQL’s Online Booking portal can be set up with various options. When a telemedicine option is selected by a client the system can be set up to action different messages and acceptance of, and compliance to, specific terms and conditions.
