PURPOSE. This purpose of this disclosure and consent is to help you understand your options so that you may give or with hold your consent to the proposed treatment.

GENERAL CONSENT. I understand that I have the right to be informed about my condition, any recommended treatment and medical and diagnostic procedures, and to make decisions regarding my treatment. I voluntarily request Mobitz Heart andRhythm (and its physicians, nurses, employees and others as it deems necessary) to examine me, order necessary testing, and to diagnose and treat my condition. If I am unable or unwilling to undergo such testing or treatment my treatment plan may be revised and my condition or outcomes may be affected. I understand that it is my responsibility to actively participate in my care and that I need to keep my physicians informed of any changes in my medical condition. I understand that in connection with my treatment, photos or videos may be taken. I understand that at times, services may be rendered to me through the use of audio, video or other electronic communications (“Telehealth”). I understand that I may withhold or withdraw my consent to a telehealth consultation at any time before and/or during the consult.

RISKS & BENEFITS OF TREATMENT. The risks and benefits of the plan of care and treatment recommended to me, and to which I have agreed, have been fully explained to me. I further acknowledge that I have been informed of alternatives to the recommended treatment and the material risks of each, including the risks involved if I decide not to receive treatment. I understand that Telehealth, though has many benefits, it may not be appropriate for all situations. I understand that potential risk of Telehealth is that because of my specific medical condition, or due to technical problems, a face-to-face consultation still maybe necessary after the Telehealth appointment, and, in rare circumstances, security protocols could fail causing a breach of my privacy. The alternative to Telehealth consultation is a face-to-face visit with a physician.

COMMUNICABLE DISEASE TESTING. I acknowledge that Texas law provides if any health care worker is exposed to my blood or other bodily fluid, Mobitz Heart and Rhythm may perform tests, without my consent, on my blood or other bodily fluid to determine the presence of Hepatitis B and C, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune DeficiencySyndrome (AIDS).

I understand that my medical information may include communicable disease information including HIV, AIDS, records related to mental health treatment and alcohol and substance abuse diagnosis or treatment, and I authorize release of that information as part of my medical record. I understand that I have the right to restrict the release of this information at any time.

E-PRESCRIBING CONSENT. ePrescribing is defined as a physician’s ability to electronically send an accurate and understandable prescription directly to a pharmacy from the point of care. I understand that this is an important element in improving the quality of care as it can reduce medication errors and enhance patient safety.
