Switching to Google Meet for Future Video Sessions

Switching to Google Meet for Future Video Sessions

I’ve been running into daily technical difficulties with Simple Practice’s teletherapy platform, so I’ve decided to make the switch to Google Meet for future video sessions.

Google Meet is set up through my G-Suite account, which is HIPAA compliant. If you’d like to find out more about how secure this platform is, you can click here: HIPAA Compliance with G Suite and Cloud Identity

I’ve been using Google Meet with a few clients who prefer it to Simple Practice and it’s been extremely simple to use and transition to. In the video below, I take you through a step by step process of using it from the client’s end.

For those of you who handle scheduling through your client portal, please continue to do so. I synced my Simple Practice schedule to Google Calendar, which I’ll be using to access your Google Meet appointments. Therefore, every new appointment that’s added to Simple Practice will be automatically synced to my G-Suite Calendar.

If you have any questions, or if you don’t get an appointment reminder from Google prior to your session, please send me a text or email and I’ll fix it ASAP. If you’d like to discontinue your Simple Practice appointment reminders (since they’ll also be coming from Google), please login to your client portal to turn them off, or send me a text/email and I’ll be happy to turn them off for you. Here’s a link where you can change your SP notification settings: Client Portal

If you plan on using a smart device for video sessions, you’ll have to download the Google Meet app:

Thank you for being patient with me as I iron out the kinks while switching to video sessions. It has been heart warming to witness the endless amount of compassion and understanding I’ve been receiving during this process.

See y’all soon <3
