Google Meet Integration
practiceQ allows you to connect to Google Meet so you can schedule telehealth sessions with your clients through our Google Calendar sync.
Please note that when using Google Meet, if you want everything to remain HIPAA compliant you'd need to sign a BAA with Google. You can inquire with them as to what type of account and anything else that is needed for this.
Enabling Google Calendar and Meet
To enable Google Meet, you first need to connect to Google Calendar, see the following article in regards to this: Sync with Google Calendar

Enabling it on a service will create a Google Meeting automatically when that specific service is schedule.
You'll see below how it notes the Google Meet instance that is created as part of an appointment that is either manually booked, or scheduled through the widget.
Clicking the "Google Meet" link will allow you to join the video session when it's time for the meeting, get the meeting address, or send the meeting details directly to the client via email or SMS.
You'll see the Google Meet in your Google Calendar and can join the meeting from there as well.
