Working with patient accounts
Patient accounts allow patients access to NeuroVisual Trainer. When a patient has access to NeuroVisual Trainer, they have access to assigned exercises and videos. They also have access to all tools and printable sheets. They do not get access to any exercises or videos apart from the ones assigned to them.
Use the "INVITE PATIENT" button to get started inviting a new patient to your clinic. Fill in the relevant information and click "INVITE USER" to send the invitation. All patients must have a valid email address to access NeuroVisual Trainer. If the patient doesn't have an email address, we suggest helping them set one up using Gmail, Protonmail, or similar.
Once invited, information about the invitation is shown on your clinic page. The patient will receive an email with a link that they can use to create their account. They will be prompted to set a password. Once they've set a password, they will be able to log into NeuroVisual Trainer and access their assigned exercises.
Troubleshooting email delivery
Email is an imperfect technology, and don't always get delivered correctly. First have the patient look for the email in their spam or "promotions" folders.
The status of the email delivery can be found on your clinic page on the line for that patient.
|Delivered||The email has been delivered to the patient, but it has not yet been opened.|
|Email Opened||The email has been opened by the patient, but the link to create their account has not been clicked.|
|Link Clicked||The user has clicked the "Accept Invitation" link to create their account, but hasn't created a password to complete their account creation.|
|In Progress||Email delivery is in progress and is taking longer than expected. Check back in an hour or two.|
|Marked as Spam||The invitation email has been erroneously marked as spam. Have the patient check their spam folder and mark it as not-spam.|
|Delivery Failed||The email delivery failed. Edit the invitation by clicking the "pencil" icon, double-check that the patient's email address is correct and click "INVITE USER" to try sending another email.|
Instead of relying on email delivery, you can also use Invitation Codes. Patients are still required to have a registered email address, but if they have trouble receiving emails, you can provide them with the invitation code instead.
The Invitation code is a 8 digit code found on the patient's line on your clinic page. You can write this code down for them, or click the "print" icon next to the invitation code to print a sheet of paper that can be given to them in-office or mailed. Once they have their invitation code, they can use it by going to neurovisualtrainer.com/code, or simply by clicking "Redeem Code" on the NeuroVisual Trainer homepage.
You can resend an invitation email by clicking the "pencil" icon on the patient's line, then clicking "UPDATE INVITE AND RESEND"
You can delete an unaccepted invitation by clicking the red trash icon on their line.
Sharing Email Adresses
Regrettably we only support one patient per email. If the patient does not have an email account, we recommend the patient open up a free email account on Gmail, Protonmail or similar.
For the curious, the reasons we require one patient per email is that, because emails are used for password recovery, sharing emails across patients opens up potential confidentiality issues. Disallowed shared emails lets us comply with HIPAA and other regulatory requirements around patient confidentiality.
Active patients (that is, patients that can log in and have access to NeuroVisual Trainer), each have a line on your clinic page.
