X. CONSENT FOR TREATMENT PERFORMED

We are providing this information on behalf of Providers:

Telemedicine involves the use of communications to enable health care providers at sites remote from patients to provide consultative services. Providers may include primary care practitioners, specialists, and/or sub-specialists. The information may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or education, and may include live two-way audio and video and other materials (e.g., medical records, data from medical devices).

The communications systems used will incorporate reasonable security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient information and will include reasonable measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption. At the end of each encounter, the patient will be provided an encounter summary, which may be kept for the patient’s records and may be shared with the patient’s local primary care or other provider, as appropriate.

Anticipated Benefits of Telemedicine

• Improved access to medical care by enabling a patient to remain at his or her home or office while consulting a clinician.

• More efficient medical evaluation and management.

Possible Risks of Telemedicine

As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. Provider believes that the likelihood of these risks materializing is very low. These risks may include, without limitation, the following:

• Delays in medical evaluation and consultation or treatment may occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment.

• Security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.

• Lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other negative outcomes.

By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:

1. I understand that the laws that protect privacy and the confidentiality of medical information also apply to telemedicine; I have received the HIPAA Notice which explains these issues in greater detail.

2. I understand that telemedicine may involve electronic communication of my personal medical information to medical practitioners who may be located in other areas, including out of state.

3. I understand that I may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of telemedicine in my care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.

4. I understand that my healthcare information may be shared with others (including health care providers and health insurers) for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations purposes. Psychotherapy notes are maintained by clinicians but are not shared with others, while billing codes and encounter summaries are shared with others and with me. If I obtain psychotherapy from Provider, I understand that my therapist has the right to limit the information provided to me if in my therapist’s professional judgment sharing the information with me would be harmful to me.

5. I further understand that my healthcare information may be shared in the following circumstances:

a) When a valid court order is issued for medical records.

b) Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.

c) Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety.

Patient Consent to the Use of Telemedicine

I have read and understand the information provided above, and understand the risks and benefits of telemedicine, and by accepting these Terms I hereby give my informed consent to participate in a telemedicine visit under the terms described herein.

IX. CONSENT TO SERVICES

The Service respects and upholds patient confidentiality with respect to protected health information as outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), and, subject to HIPAA regulations, will obtain express patient consent prior to sharing any patient-identifiable information to a third party for purposes other than treatment, payment or health care operations.

At the end of your consultation, you will have the option to send this record to your primary care provider via email and we encourage you to do so.

X. CONSENT FOR TREATMENT PERFORMED

We are providing this information on behalf of Providers:

Telemedicine involves the use of communications to enable health care providers at sites remote from patients to provide consultative services. Providers may include primary care practitioners, specialists, and/or sub-specialists. The information may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or education, and may include live two-way audio and video and other materials (e.g., medical records, data from medical devices).

The communications systems used will incorporate reasonable security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient information and will include reasonable measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption. At the end of each encounter, the patient will be provided an encounter summary, which may be kept for the patient’s records and may be shared with the patient’s local primary care or other provider, as appropriate.

Anticipated Benefits of Telemedicine

• Improved access to medical care by enabling a patient to remain at his or her home or office while consulting a clinician.

• More efficient medical evaluation and management.

Possible Risks of Telemedicine

As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. Provider believes that the likelihood of these risks materializing is very low. These risks may include, without limitation, the following:

• Delays in medical evaluation and consultation or treatment may occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment.

• Security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.

• Lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other negative outcomes.

By accepting these Terms, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:

1. I understand that the laws that protect privacy and the confidentiality of medical information also apply to telemedicine; I have received the HIPAA Notice which explains these issues in greater detail.

2. I understand that telemedicine may involve electronic communication of my personal medical information to medical practitioners who may be located in other areas, including out of state.

3. I understand that I may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of telemedicine in my care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.

4. I understand that my healthcare information may be shared with others (including health care providers and health insurers) for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations purposes. Psychotherapy notes are maintained by clinicians but are not shared with others, while billing codes and encounter summaries are shared with others and with me. If I obtain psychotherapy from Provider, I understand that my therapist has the right to limit the information provided to me if in my therapist’s professional judgment sharing the information with me would be harmful to me.

5. I further understand that my healthcare information may be shared in the following circumstances:

a) When a valid court order is issued for medical records.

b) Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.

c) Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety.

Patient Consent to the Use of Telemedicine

I have read and understand the information provided above, and understand the risks and benefits of telemedicine, and by accepting these Terms I hereby give my informed consent to participate in a telemedicine visit under the terms described herein.

XIV. MISCELLANEOUS

These Terms constitute the entire agreement between you and us, superseding any prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and us. In the event any provision of these Terms is held unenforceable, it will not affect the validity or enforceability of the remaining provisions and will be replaced by an enforceable provision that comes closest to the intention underlying the unenforceable provision. You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment, or agency relationship exists between you and us as a result of these Terms or your access to and use of the Services.

Our failure to enforce any provisions of these Terms or respond to a violation by any party does not waive our right to subsequently enforce any terms or conditions of the Terms or respond to any violations. Nothing contained in these Terms is in derogation of our right to comply with governmental, court, and law enforcement requests or requirements relating to your use of the Services or information provided to or gathered by us with respect to such use.
