INFORMED CONSENT FOR SERVICES PERFORMED BY SERVICE PROVIDERS
The Company is providing this information on behalf of Service Providers that participate in iDocsWeb:
Telemedicine involves the use of electronic communications to enable Service Providers at sites remote from patients to provide consultative services. Service Providers may include primary care practitioners, specialists, and/or subspecialists. The information may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or education, and will include live two-way audio and video and other materials (e.g. medical records, data from medical devices).
An encounter summary will be provided to the patient at the end of each encounter 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.
Possible Risks of Telemedicine:
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. 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.
Any other risks arising from the provision and receipt of medical care, including the risk of misdiagnosis, injury, illness, or death, whether due to the lack of an in-person medical examination or otherwise.
By accepting this Agreement, 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.
- I understand that telemedicine may involve electronic communication of my personal medical information to Service Providers 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.
- I understand that my healthcare information may be shared with other individuals for treatment, payment and healthcare operations purposes.
I further understand that my healthcare information may be shared in compliance with applicable law in the following circumstances:
- When a valid court order is issued for medical records.
- Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.
- Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety.

The Company has implemented a variety of encryption and security technologies and procedures to protect your personal information which is stored in the Company’s computer systems from unauthorized access.
