Telehealth Glitches




  • Kimberly Fredericks

    Yes, many folks are.  I sent a message to question it earlier today.  It seems to be happening since an update or shortly after one of the recent updates.  It is quite frustrating.

    This is consistently happening for me during my sessions as well. I did all the troubleshooting, upgraded my WiFi and reached out to Simple Practice for support, but nothing has changed. Consistently have the red bar, the "internet connection unstable" and a few times get a "reconnecting" signal where client and I are unable to see one another.


    Anyone have any tips or advice? This is super frustrating/stressful for both myself and the client!

    I am having the same problems. Starts with an excellent connection then quickly drops to poor connection quality, and also the "internet connection is unstable message".  My husband works from home in the cyber security industry and we have business grade internet and excellent wireless. He has upgraded my laptop and made various changes which have not resolved this problem either. So frustrating!

    I am not glad you all are having this issue but I am so glad to read it is not just me.  We too made changes in the home with the Wifi and the strength is excellent but the same thing keeps happening to me!  It did seem to start around the time of the upgrade.  Hopefully they are working on a solution.

    I am having the same problem and am considering dropping this function with SP. Have we heard a response from SP? What is the best way to escalate the issue??

    Me too, I have upgraded the wifi at home, and at my office, a new router was just put on my floor.  It is exactly as other comments have described:  sessions start out saying "excellent connection," and then the connection gets unstable, or I get the red bar, picture gets fuzzy, and the client complains that I am dropping out.  It will go in and out like this for the whole session.  This morning it was so bad with both clients that we decided to just switch to the phone. It has gotten worse in the last couple of weeks, especially.
