What is a Group Telehealth Room?

A Coviu Group Telehealth Room is a great way to connect with larger groups of people. This could be a group therapy session, counselling or, a yoga session. The way in which you use your Group Telehealth Room is only limited by your imagination.

Like our other workflows, you can still invite your clients or patients to join you in the room for a session. Invitations can be sent via email from your Coviu account, or you can copy the room link into an email or calendar invitation.


How may people can I have in a Group Telehealth Room?

There is a hard limit of 20 people. That includes you as the clinician or host. You could have a combination of 2 hosts and 18 guests, or other variations.

The quality of a call is based on all participants having access to a good internet connection. The more people you have in the call, the higher the load on the internet connection. 


How to create a Group Room

To start a group call, you need to have a Group Room. If there is no number beside the Group rooms label on the left side menu, then there are no existing Group Rooms in your account and you have to create one.
