Joining a Telehealth Appointment

Based on medical license requirements, you must physically be in the State of Georgia during your telehealth appointment. If you are not, the visit cannot occur and you will need to reschedule or seek care where you are located.

If you have scheduled a telehealth visit, your encounter will be conducted via a remote audio-video connection with your medical provider. You will not come to the health center facility for your appointment.

1. Check In for your Telehealth Appointment

  • At least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time, log in to Eagle OSH and click the “Check In” box next to your appointment date/time.

2. Complete Any Required Forms

  • After checking in for your appointment, you will be prompted to complete any forms that have been assigned to your appointment. You must complete and sign all required Forms in Eagle OSH prior to the start of your appointment.
  • The Telehealth Informed Consent Form must be completed and signed by you in order for the visit to occur.  This form is located on the Forms page of Eagle OSH.
