The Sites and the Services are owned and controlled by Perry Health, Inc. and its subsidiaries, affiliates, successors, and assigns (collectively, “Perry”, “we,” “us,” or “our”). The terms “you” and “your” means you and any other person using the Sites or accessing your Account (as defined below) on your behalf.

The Sites and the Services are not intended for medical emergencies or urgent situations. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.

Please read these Terms of Use carefully and in their entirety, as these Terms of Use include important information about your legal rights, remedies, and obligations. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding these Terms of Use.

By using the Sites and the Services, you acknowledge that you have read, understand, and accept all terms and conditions contained within these Terms of Use, our Privacy Policy, Informed Consent, and to the extent applicable to you, the Notice of Privacy Practices. Please note that additional terms and conditions may apply to some of the Services, all of which terms are made a part of these Terms of Use by reference. In the event of a conflict between these Terms of Use and the terms posted to a specific portion of a Site or for any of the Services, the supplemental terms shall control with respect to your use of the specific portion of the Sites or the Services.

Additionally, your ability to use some of the Services may involve other terms and conditions regarding third party (e.g. pharmaceutical manufacturers’) products and services. These terms and conditions may apply to you, but in no event shall such terms apply to Perry, the Practice, or the Providers.

In order to access the Sites and the Services, you represent and warrant that you are older than 18 years old, as the Services are only for users of the age of 18 or older. If you are under the age of 18, please do not attempt to use the Sites or the Services.

3. Services

Perry’s Role

We contract with and offer the Sites and the Services to allow patients and the medical practice, PERRY MEDICAL GROUP OF FLORIDA, P.A., PERRY MEDICAL GROUP OF CALIFORNIA, NEW YORK REMOTE MEDICAL, P.C., PERRY MEDICAL GROUP OF MICHIGAN PC, PERRY MEDICAL GROUP OF NEW JERSEY PA, (collectively the “Practices”), to connect and set up consultations via telehealth with the Practices’s health care providers (individually, the “Provider” and collectively, the “Providers”).

Perry contracts with and provides administrative services to the Practices, which are independently owned by a licensed physician and not the Practices. Perry does not employ or in any way supervise or control the Providers providing care to you. The Sites organize information you submit on your medical status for use by your Provider and facilitate scheduling of medical examinations. While Perry facilitates care coordination, Perry does not engage in the practice of medicine or provide medical advice or care. The content of the Sites and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by Perry. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions.

The Practices’ Role

The Practices’ Providers deliver clinical services online. Providers are independently contracted or employed by the Practices and use the Sites as a way to coordinate access for you. Perry is not responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care the Providers render to you. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and the Provider you ultimately select. Your interactions with the Providers via telehealth are not intended to replace your relationship of your other health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither Perry, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Sites or the Services, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via telehealth, or any information obtained on the Sites.

Not for Emergencies

The Sites and the Services are not intended for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the Sites. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately. You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified health care provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.

Insurance

Perry and the Practices currently accept payment from select federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, for the Services. By agreeing to use the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you will pay directly for any Services provided to you that are not covered by insurance. Perry will attempt to bill any insurance, including federal or state health care programs, for Services rendered. In the event that services are not covered by insurance or there is patient responsibility due to the practice, Perry will send you a bill for services. You may be eligible for financial hardship policies. Please contact legal@perryhealth.com for more information.

Availability of Services

Perry and the Practices operate subject to state and federal regulations, and the Services may not be available in your state. You represent that you are not a person barred from enrolling for and/or receiving the Services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdictions in which you may be located. Access to and use of the Sites and/or the Services is limited exclusively to users located in states within the United States where the Services are available. Accessing the Sites or Services from jurisdictions where content is illegal, or where we do not offer Services, is prohibited.

Telehealth

Your use of the Site and the Services involves telehealth, which consists of the interactive communication between a patient and provider who are not in the same physical location, for the delivery of health care via electronic means. Please review our Informed Consent for more details, including a description of the risks and benefits associated with the use of telehealth. The Informed Consent constitutes a part of these Terms of Use and is hereby incorporated by reference.

  • assist any third party in engaging in any activity prohibited by these Terms of Use.

You represent, warrant and agree that you will comply with the above acceptable use requirements. In addition to any remedies that we may have at law or in equity, if we determine, in our sole discretion, that you have violated or are likely to violate the foregoing prohibitions, we may take any action we deem necessary to cure or prevent the violation, including without limitation, the immediate removal of User Information or related materials from the Sites and termination of your Account.

5. Electronic Communications

When you use the Sites or Services, or send e-mails, messages, and other communications from your desktop or mobile device to us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. You agree that (a) all agreements and consents can be signed electronically and (b) all notices, disclosures, and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such notices and other communications be in writing.

6. Ownership and Copyright

Copyrights, trademark rights, database rights, design rights, and any and all other intellectual property and other rights relating to the Sites, the Services, and any information or documents offered by Perry and/or the Sites existing now or in the future including but not limited to computer programs, source and object code, documentation, software graphics, text, images, designs, videos, sound, illustrations, animations, databases, logos, domain names, trade names and trade identities (collectively, the “Materials”), are the property of Perry or the Practices. All elements of the Sites, including without limitation the general design and the Materials, are protected by trade dress, copyright, moral rights, trademark, and other laws relating to intellectual property rights. The Sites, the Services, and the Materials may only be used for the intended purpose for which they are being made available.

Images of people or places displayed on the Sites are either the property of, or used with permission by, Perry. The use of these images by you, or anyone else authorized by you, is prohibited unless specifically permitted by these Terms of Use or specific permission provided elsewhere on the Sites. Any unauthorized use of the images may violate copyright laws, trademark laws, the laws of privacy and publicity, and communications regulations and statutes.

A single copy of the Materials may be downloaded or otherwise copied from the Sites for non-commercial personal use only, provided however, that all copyright and other proprietary notices are kept intact. Any further copying, reproduction, publication, posting, transmission, or distribution of any part of the Materials in any way is prohibited. Except as provided herein, no license or right, express or implied, is granted to any person under any intellectual property right. Except as authorized under copyright laws, you are responsible for obtaining permission before reusing any copyrighted material that is available through the Sites. Modification of the Materials or use of the Materials for any other purpose is a violation of Perry’s or the Practices’ copyright and other proprietary rights. Perry neither warrants nor represents that your use of the Materials will not infringe the rights of third parties not owned by or affiliated with Perry or the Practices.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that content appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that content posted on the Sites infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Perry a “Notification of Claimed Infringement” requesting that the content be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Sites are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
  • Identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Perry to locate the material on the Sites;
  • Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the content in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send Perry a counter-notice.

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; click here for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Sites should be sent to legal@perryhealth.com. Consult your legal advisor and see 17 U.S.C. § 512 before filing a notice or counter-notice as there are penalties for false claims under the DMCA.

14. Dispute Resolution; Arbitration

These Terms of Use shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York excluding its conflict of law rules.

Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its Commercial Arbitration Rules by a sole arbitrator. The parties hereto shall endeavor to agree upon the arbitrator, and if they fail to do so within twenty-one (21) days of the commencement of the Arbitration, the appointment shall be made by the AAA in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules. The place, or legal seat of arbitration, shall be New York, and the language of the arbitration shall be English.

You may only bring claims in your individual capacity on your own behalf, and not in any representative capacity or on behalf of any class or purported class, and no arbitration you commence hereunder may be joined with or include any claims by any other persons. Each party shall bear its own arbitration filing fees.

The arbitrator shall issue a reasoned award and shall have the power to grant any interim or provisional measures that the arbitrator deems appropriate, including, but not limited to, injunctive relief and specific performance, and any interim or provisional measures ordered by the arbitrator may be specifically enforced by any court of competent jurisdiction as a final award. Nothing herein, however, shall authorize the arbitrator to act as amiable compositeurs or to proceed ex aequo et bono. Each party hereto retains the right to seek interim measures from a judicial authority, and any such request shall not be deemed incompatible with the agreement to arbitrate or a waiver of the right to arbitrate. The arbitrator shall award the prevailing party, if any as determined by the arbitrator, its reasonable costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees. Judgment on any award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. No information concerning an arbitration, beyond the names of the parties, their counsel or the relief requested, may be unilaterally disclosed to a third party by any party unless required by law. Any documentary or other evidence given by any party or witness in any arbitration shall be treated as confidential by any party whose access to such evidence arises exclusively because of its participation in the arbitration and shall not be disclosed to any third party (other than a witness or expert), except as may be required by law. Any party who commences any judicial proceeding in connection with an arbitration initiated hereunder shall endeavor to have the judicial record of any such proceeding sealed to the extent permitted by law.

16. Indemnification

You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold harmless Perry, the Practices, the Providers, and any affiliates from and against any and all rights, demands, losses, liabilities, judgments, fines, interest, penalties, damages, claims, expenses, causes of action, actions, suits (no matter whether at law or equity), fees, and costs, (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees and fees of other professional advisors) arising directly or indirectly out of or in connection with: (a) your use or misuse of the Sites, the Services, the Materials, or any information posted on the Sites; (b) your breach of these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy; (c) the content or subject matter of any information (including without limitation User Information) you provide to Perry, the Practices, or any Provider or customer service agent; (d) any negligent or wrongful act or omission by you in your use or misuse of the Sites, the Services, the Materials, or any information on the Sites, including without limitation, infringement of third party intellectual property rights, privacy rights, or negligent or wrongful conduct; and/or (e) your failure to comply with any applicable laws or regulations.

17. Termination, Modification, and Other General Terms

Perry reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate your access to all or part of the Sites and terminate your Account, with or without cause, and with or without notice. Unless otherwise stated, any other rules, restrictions, guidelines and terms and conditions that may be posted or made available in connection with a particular feature of the Sites or the Services are incorporated by this reference into these Terms of Use.

Perry reserves the right to modify these Terms of Use from time to time in its sole discretion, effective upon posting. In the event of such changes, we will post the changes on the Sites and/or notify you via email. Any use of the Sites or the Services after such changes will be deemed an acceptance of those changes. You should periodically visit this page to review the current Terms of Use, so you are aware of any such revisions to which you are bound.

These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between Perry and you pertaining to the subject matter hereof. In its sole discretion, certain provisions of these Terms of Use may be superseded by expressly designated legal notices or terms located on particular pages within the Sites, or agreements between you and the Practices.

If any provision of these Terms of Use shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from these Terms of Use and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Your use of the Sites or the Services is independent of Perry and not as an employee, agent, partner, or joint-venturer with Perry for any purpose. No waiver by either party of any breach or default hereunder shall be deemed to be a waiver of any preceding or subsequent breach or default.

These cookies remember choices you make such as the country from which you visit the Sites, language, and search parameters.  These can then be used to provide you with an experience more appropriate to your selections and to make the visits more tailored and pleasant.  The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting Cookies or Advertising Cookies

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests.  They are also used to limit the number of times you see an ad as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.  The cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks.  They remember the websites you visit and that information is shared with other parties such as advertisers.

Social Media Cookies

These cookies allow you to share what you have been doing on the Sites on social media, such as Facebook and Twitter.  These cookies are not within our control, and are therefore subject to a third party’s rules and policies.  Social media companies may have their own privacy policies, which we strongly suggest you review if you use those websites or apps.

We may use different kinds of cookies including session ID cookies and persistent cookies.  Session ID cookies are used to personalize your user experience, to determine ways to improve the Sites and the Services we offer.  These cookies are deleted when you close your browser session.  Persistent cookies are used to collect information such as IP addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks.

You can change your settings for cookies and similar technologies by clicking on the cookie consent box on the Sites.  In addition, you can refuse or accept cookies from the Sites at any time by activating the settings on your browser.  You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of the Sites may not work properly if you do.  Check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.  To find out more about cookies, visit www.aboutcookies.org.

We may also use technologies similar to cookies, such as Google Analytics.  We use Google Analytics to collect anonymized statistics in order to improve the Sites and the Services.  We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with Personal Information.  You can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on your browser.  You can refer to the following links for more information: Google Analytics and privacy and Google Analytics opt-out browser.

Many web browsers allow for the use of a “Do Not Track” function to inform websites that you do not want your online activities tracked.  At this time, we do not track your or any other users’ Personal Information over time and across third-party websites.  We therefore do not respond to browser “Do Not Track” signals.

Perry may disclose your Personal Information to third parties when obligated or permitted to do so by law or if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on Perry or to investigate, prevent, or resolve any suspected or actual unlawful activities, such as potential fraud, or a perceived irregularity in any audits of the accuracy of any documentation or information submitted to Perry by you or on your behalf, as deemed appropriate by Perry.

Additionally, we reserve the right to disclose to third parties non-personally identifiable information collected for any lawful purpose, including but not limited to, aggregate or de-identified data.

Security Methods

Perry has implemented commercially reasonable physical, technical, and administrative security measures to protect your Personal Information, including a secure firewall and use of security infrastructure.  As an additional security measure, your Personal Information is also encrypted during transmission using SSL security, an industry standard secure technology.  SSL encryption is indicated on your Web browser by the display of a lock or key on the browser status bar.  Nonetheless, no such measure is ever 100% effective; therefore, we do not guarantee that your Personal Information will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such Personal Information.  We encourage you to use caution when using the Internet.  This includes not sharing your passwords.

We also are required to provide you with this Notice, which explains our legal duties and privacy practices, as well as your rights, with respect to PHI that we collect and maintain. We are required by federal law to abide by the terms of this Notice currently in effect. However, we reserve the right to change the privacy practices described in this Notice and make the new practices effective for all PHI that we maintain. Should we make such a change, you may obtain a revised Notice by calling our office at (866) 447-3779 and requesting a revised copy be sent in the mail, or accessing our website at perryhealth.com.

USES AND DISCLOSURES OF PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION

We are permitted under federal law to use and disclose PHI, without your written authorization, for certain routine uses and disclosures, such as those made for treatment, payment, and the operation of our business. The following are examples of the types of routine uses and disclosures of PHI that we are permitted to make. While this list is not exhaustive, it should give you an idea of the routine uses and disclosures we are permitted to make.

For Treatment: We will use and disclose your PHI to provide, coordinate, or manage your treatment and inform you of treatment alternatives and other health related benefits that may be of interest to you. We may use and disclose your PHI to health care professionals or other third parties to provide, coordinate, and manage the delivery of healthcare. For example, we may disclose your PHI to a pharmacy to fill a prescription, to a laboratory to order a test, or another specialist for consultation.

For Payment: Your PHI will be used, as needed, to obtain payment for the health care services we provide you. We may disclose your PHI to other health care providers, health plans, and health care clearinghouses for their payment activities. For example, we may use and disclose PHI about you to receive payment for our services, manage your account, and fulfill our responsibilities under your health plan.

For Health Care Operations: We may use or disclose your PHI in order to support the business activities of this practice. These activities include, but are not limited to, reviewing our treatment and services and evaluating the performance of our staff in providing services. We may also use your PHI to evaluate and improve services provided by our business associates, including those that provide data assessment and management and other services for or on our behalf.

B. Uses and Disclosures That May Be Made Without Your Authorization or Opportunity to Object

We may use or disclose your PHI in the following situations without your authorization or providing you the opportunity to object.

Required by the Secretary of Health and Human Services: We may be required to disclose your PHI to the Secretary of Health and Human Services to investigate or determine our compliance with the requirements of the HIPAA Privacy Rule.

Health Oversight: We may disclose PHI to a health oversight agency for activities authorized by law, such as audits, investigations, and inspections. Oversight agencies include government agencies that oversee the health care system, government benefit programs, other government regulatory programs and civil rights laws.

Abuse or Neglect: If you have been a victim of abuse, neglect, or domestic violence, we may disclose your PHI to a government agency authorized to receive such information. In addition, we may disclose your PHI to a public health authority that is authorized by law to receive reports of child abuse or neglect.

Judicial and Administrative Proceedings: We may disclose your PHI in response to an order of a court or administrative tribunal (to the extent such disclosure is expressly authorized), and, in certain conditions, in response to a subpoena, discovery request or other lawful process.

Law Enforcement: We may disclose your PHI, so long as applicable legal requirements are met, for law enforcement purposes, such as providing information to the police about the victim of a crime.

Coroners and Funeral Directors: We may disclose your PHI to a coroner, medical examiner, or funeral director if it is needed to perform their legally authorized duties.

Organ Donation: If you are an organ donor, we may disclose your PHI to organ procurement organizations as necessary to facilitate organ donation or transplantation.

Specialized Government Functions: When the appropriate conditions apply, may disclose PHI for purposes related to military or national security concerns, such as for the purpose of a determination by the Department of Veterans Affairs of your eligibility for benefits.

De-identified Information: We may de-identify your PHI in accordance with the HIPAA standards. PHI that is de-identified in accordance with the HIPAA standards is not considered PHI, and therefore, we may use and disclose your de-identified information for any lawful purpose, including without limitation, for research purposes.

C. Uses and Disclosures That May Be Made Either With Your Agreement or the Opportunity to Object

Unless you object, we may disclose to a member of your family, a relative, a close friend, or any other person you identify, orally or in writing, your PHI that directly relates to that person's involvement in your health care.

YOUR RIGHTS REGARDING HEALTH INFORMATION ABOUT YOU

You have certain rights regarding your PHI, which are explained below. You may exercise these rights by submitting a request in writing to our Privacy Officer.

A. You have the right to inspect and copy your PHI. If you would like to see or get an electronic or paper copy your PHI that is contained in a designated record set (e.g., medical and billing records), we are required to provide you access to such PHI for inspection and copying within 30 days after receipt of your request (with up to a 30-day extension if needed). We may charge you a reasonable fee to cover duplication, mailing and other costs incurred by us in complying with your request. In addition, there are situations where we may deny your request for access to your PHI. For example, we may deny your request if we believe the disclosure will endanger your life or that of another person. Depending on the circumstances of the denial, you may have a right to have this decision reviewed.

B. You have the right to request a restriction of your PHI. You may ask us not to use or disclose any part of your PHI for purposes of treatment, payment or health care operations. You may also request that any part of your PHI not be disclosed to family members or friends who may be involved in your care or for notification purposes as described in this Notice. Your request must state the specific restriction requested and to whom you want the restriction to apply. We are not required to agree to a restriction that you may request, except we must agree not to disclose your PHI to your health plan if the disclosure (1) is for payment or health care operations and is not otherwise required by law, and (2) relates to a health care item or service which you paid for in full out of pocket. If we agree to the requested restriction, we may not use or disclose your PHI in violation of that restriction unless it is needed to provide emergency treatment.

C. You have the right to request to receive confidential communications from us by alternative means or at an alternative location. You have the right to request that we communicate with you in a certain way or at a certain location. We will accommodate reasonable requests. We may also condition this accommodation by asking you for information as to how payment will be handled or specification of an alternative address or other method of contact.

D. You have the right to amend your PHI. This means you may request an amendment of your PHI in our records that is contained in a designated record set (e.g., medical and billing records) for as long as we maintain the PHI. We will respond to your request within 60 days (with up to a 30-day extension if needed). We may deny your request if, for example, we determine that your PHI is accurate and complete. If we deny your request, we will send you a written explanation and allow you to submit a written statement of disagreement.

E. You have the right to receive an accounting of certain disclosures that we have made of your PHI. You have the right to receive an accounting of certain disclosures we have made, if any, of your PHI. This right only applies to disclosures for purposes other than treatment, payment, or health care operations as described in this Notice. It excludes disclosures we may have made to you, your family members, or friends involved in your care. The right to receive this information is subject to certain exceptions, restrictions and limitations. You must specify a time period, which may not be longer than 6 years. You may request a shorter time frame. You have the right to one free request within any 12-month period, but we may charge you for any additional requests in the same 12-month period.

Informed Consent

Last Updated:
November 11, 2022

Perry Health and its affiliated health care practices and health care providers (“Perry Health”) provide remote monitoring services to patients (“RPM Services”) using remote monitoring technologies (“RPM Technology”). By agreeing to this informed consent ( “Consent”), you have elected to receive RPM Services and telehealth from Perry Health. If you have questions about use of the RPM Technology itself and whether it is appropriate for your medical condition, the risks associated with using the RPM Technology, or the provider’s credentials and professional background, please ask your Perry Health provider. All capitalized terms used in this Consent but not defined herein will have the meanings provided in the Terms of Use or Privacy Policy. Only use the Services if you have read this information and subsequently made an informed decision that the Services are right for you. If you have any questions, please email us at legal@perryhealth.com.

In exchange for your use of the RPM Technology to receive RPM Services, you acknowledge and agree to the following terms and conditions of this Consent:

1. Use of RPM Technology

You understand and agree that:

  • THE RPM TECHNOLOGY IS NOT AN EMERGENCY RESPONSE UNIT. YOU MUST CALL 911 FOR IMMEDIATE MEDICAL EMERGENCIES
  • Perry Health provider will decide, in his or her sole discretion, whether it is appropriate to treat your condition using the RPM Technology
  • You or Perry Health provider may require an in-person examination prior to you receiving RPM services
  • The anticipated response time for electronic communications submitted through the RPM Technology varies and you accept any risk associated with the response time, including a delay in obtaining medical care

  • No warranty or guarantee has been made to you concerning any particular result related to your condition or diagnosis

2. Risks Associated with Use of RPM Technology

You understand that use of the RPM Technology has risks associated with it, such as (1) information transmitted through the RPM Technology may be insufficient to allow for appropriate medical decision-making by Perry Health provider; (2) failures of equipment or infrastructure may cause delays in medical evaluation and treatment, or loss of information; and (3) unauthorized access to your medical information. You acknowledge that, although Perry Health and its RPM Technology vendor strive to prevent unauthorized access to information about me through encryption of information transmitted by the RPM Technology and other security measures, Perry Health and its vendor cannot guarantee that your use of the RPM Technology and the information will be private or secure, and you consent to this risk. You understand and consent to the risks associated with the use of the RPM Technology.

3. Use of Telehealth

“Telehealth” consists of the use of electronic information and communication technologies by providers to deliver health care services to patients not at the same physical location, which may include the assessment, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education, care management and/or self-management of a patient. Such communication can include electronic transfer of medical records, images/photographs, health information, or other Personal Information between you and the Providers, live conversations or other interactions between you and the Providers via audio, video, and/or media, and use and analysis of output data from medical or wearable devices, sound, video, and other related files.

While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth, which are listed in more detail below. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. In order to use the Services, you are required to review and agree to this Informed Consent.

4. Risks Associated with Telehealth

As with any in-person health care encounter, there are potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. These risks may include, but are not limited to:

  • Limitations on the availability and/or appropriateness of specific health services that may be hindered as a result of the Services being offered remotely (e.g., information transmitted to the Providers may not be sufficient to allow for appropriate medical decision making by the Providers and the inability of your Providers to conduct certain tests or assess vital functions and signs in-person may prevent the Providers from providing a diagnosis or treatment)
  • Confidentiality and security of your health information, including Personal Information, through use of potentially unsecure electronic and telecommunication technologies
  • Technological issues during your telehealth visit (but note that alternative communication methods may be provided if you are having connectivity issues)
  • Given regulatory requirements in certain jurisdictions, the Provider’s treatment options, especially pertaining to certain prescriptions, may be limited

5. Privacy and Confidentiality

You understand that the laws that protect the privacy and the confidentiality of health information also apply to RPM Services. You also understand that RPM Services involves electronic communication of your personal health information to health care providers who may be located in other areas, including out of state, and that your health care provider may disclose your personal health information, except as prohibited by federal or state law.

6. Accuracy of Information Submitted to Perry Health Provider

You acknowledge and agree that you are solely responsible for ensuring that the information submitted by you through the RPM Technology is accurate, complete and current. You understand that Perry Health provider will rely on this information to diagnose and prepare a treatment plan for your medical condition and your failure to provide accurate, complete and current information may lead to a delay in your treatment or a misdiagnosis.

7. Release and Waiver

You acknowledge and agree to limit, disclaim, and release Perry Health from liability in connection with the RPM Technology’s use.

8. Expenses

You understand and agree that you are responsible for the cost of all professional fees associated with your use of the RPM Technology, which may change from time to time, and the cost of any medications or supplies prescribed by Perry Health provider, if applicable.

9. Other Legal Terms

This Consent cannot be amended except in writing by mutual agreement of Perry Health and you. If any provision is or becomes unenforceable or invalid, the other provisions will continue with the same effect.

10. Right to Revoke

You understand that you can revoke this Consent by sending written notice to Perry Health (“Revocation”). You agree that your Revocation must contain your name and your address. You also understand that your Revocation means that you are not permitted to receive care using RPM Technology. Your Revocation will be effective upon Perry Health’s receipt of your written notice, except that your Revocation will not have any effect on any action taken by Perry Health provider in reliance on this Consent before it received your written notice of Revocation.

11. Insurance & Patient Responsibility

Perry Health currently accepts payment from select federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, for the Services as well as certain insurance plans. You understand and agree that Perry Health will attempt to bill any insurance, including federal or state health care programs, for Services rendered. In the event that services are not covered by insurance or there is patient responsibility due to the practice, Perry may have to unenroll the user from the program and terminate our relationship.

Additional State-Specific Consents

The following consents apply to users accessing Perry Health services for the purposes of participating in a telehealth consultation as required by the states listed below:
