When enabled on the clinic settings, providers and patients can invite guests to a call by using the Guest Invite Feature. This can allow providers and patients to securely bring a family member or an interpreter into a video visit using a meeting link or dial-in number. This invitation can be sent through e-mail and text message as well.
