CONSENT FOR TELEHEALTH CONSULTATION
I understand that I am voluntarily engaging in a telemedicine consultation with PROTELIX HEALTH CLINIC (P.H.C), LLC.
I understand that the video conferencing technology and/or phone consultations will not be the same as a direct patient/health care provider visit due to the fact that I will not be in the same room as my health care provider.
I understand there are potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorized access, and technical difficulties. I understand that my health care provider or I can discontinue the telehealth consult/visit if it is felt that the videoconferencing connections are not adequate for the situation.
I understand that the alternative to a telemedicine consultation is to forgo evaluation and treatment with P.H.C. and to seek out an in-person evaluation elsewhere. Thus, I am freely choosing to participate in a telemedicine consultation.
I understand that telemedicine has limitations in regard to the physical examination.
I understand that the physical exam portion of the care provided through P.H.C. will be limited to inspection via video conferencing and some parts of the exam such as physical tests, examination of certain body parts, and vital signs may be conducted by individuals at my location at the direction of the consulting health care provider or not done at all.
Telemedicine services offered through P.H.C. are not an Emergency Service and in the event of an emergency or urgent medical issue, I will use a phone to call 911, go to the emergency department.
To maintain my privacy, I will not share telemedicine login information or video conferencing links with anyone unauthorized to attend the appointment.
By signing this form, I certify:
