Now offering Telehealth Visits
The Ingham Community Health Centers are proud to announce the new Telehealth Program in partnership with Luma Health. Our mission has always been “Your Health” and telehealth services will promote continued care when getting to your doctors office is a challenge.
Telehealth is available to any patient of the Ingham Community Health Center.
Our Health Center has partnered with Luma Health to provide a telehealth appointments using your smartphone or computer.
Telehealth is accessible from the comfort of your home or any private location with access to a smartphone or internet connected computer. There are no apps to install or special equipment to obtain.
Telehealth appointments are scheduled in the same way traditional provider appointments are scheduled. You will receive a date and time.
Using the contact information on file, Luma will confirm your appointment and provide reminders 60 mins and 5 mins prior to your appointment via text or email. Included in the reminder will be a link that will allow access to your appointment. You can also invite additional family members or caregivers to assist during your appointment.
A benefit to partnering with Luma Health is ease of use. There are not any new accounts to create or passwords to remember. Simply click on the link in your reminder to be taken to your telehealth appointment. Once you connect via your appointment link, a welcome screen will appear and may ask additional questions regarding your sound/ video quality and test your connection. When ready, your provider will join your session.
Though it may feel a little uncomfortable to be on video during your appointment, it is similar to an in person visit and allows your provider to gather the most amount of information regarding your concern.
