Informed Consent of Services
Delivering telemedicine services involves the use of electronic communications to enable healthcare providers at different locations to share individual patient medical information for improving patient care. Providers may include primary care practitioners, specialists, subspecialists, and/or other allied healthcare professionals. The information may be used for diagnosis, follow-up and may include any of the following:
Electronic systems used will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient identification and imaging data and will include measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
Responsibility for the patient care should remain with the physician on the consultation where MyHealth platform facilitates Software as a Service (SaaS).
Improved access to medical care by enabling a patient to remain in his/her local healthcare site (i.e. home) while the physician consults and obtains test results at distant/other sites.
More efficient medical evaluation and management.
Obtaining expertise of a specialist.
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:
In rare cases, the consultant may determine that the transmitted information is of inadequate quality, thus demanding a face-to-face meeting with the patient, or at least a rescheduled video consult; Delays in medical evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment; In very rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.
A lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors; By checking the box associated with “Terms & Conditions”, you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:
I understand that the laws that protect privacy and the confidentiality of medical information also apply to telemedicine, and that no information obtained in the use of telemedicine, which identifies me, will be disclosed to other entities without my consent.
I understand that I have the right to withhold or withdraw my consent to the use of telemedicine in the course of my care at any time, without affecting my right to future care or treatment.
I understand the alternatives to telemedicine consultation as they have been explained to me, and in choosing to participate in a telemedicine consultation, I understand that some parts of the exam involving physical tests may be conducted by individuals at my location, or at a testing facility, at the direction of the consulting healthcare provider.
I understand that telemedicine may involve electronic communication of my personal medical information to other medical practitioners who may be located in other areas, including out of state.
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.
