I understand that telemedicine is the use of electronic information and communication technology by a health care provider to deliver services to an individual when he/she is located at a different site than the provider. I understand my health care provider will determine whether the condition being diagnosed and/or treated is appropriate for a telemedicine encounter. I understand I can choose to stop telemedicine consult at any time.
I understand that:
• My health care professional and I will communicate by interactive video conferencing using a telehealth platform
• My health care professional will have access to all the clinical tools available at a regular office visit (e.g. prescription refills, appointment scheduling, patient education, etc)
• There are potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorized access, and technical difficulties
• My health care information may be shared with other individuals for scheduling and billing purposes
• The laws that protect privacy and the confidentiality of medical information also applies to telemedicine. As always, your insurance carrier will have access to your medical records for quality review/audit
