SkynFyx Telehealth consent
In using the SkynFyxplatform, you will be consulting with a licensed doctor("Provider") solely via the use of "telehealth." Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a doctorand a patient who are not in the same physical location. Telehealth may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or patient education, and may include, but is not limited to:
Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information, or other data between a patient and a doctor
Interactions between a patient and doctorvia audio, video, and/or data communications
Use of output data from medical devices, sound, and video files
Provider(s) using the SkynFyxplatform will be interacting with you solely via use of the SkynFyxplatform. As a result, all of the medical care and treatment you receive from such Providers will be provided via telehealth, and you will not be able to meet with yourProvider in the same physical location.
The electronics system used in the SkynFyxplatform will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information and imaging data, and will include measures to safeguard the data to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
Anticipated benefits: The use of telehealth by Providers through the SkynFyxplatform may have the following benefits:
Making it easier and more efficient for you to access the medical care for the conditions treated by Providers
Reducing wait times for diagnosis, treatment, and appropriate prescriptions
Allowing you to obtain medical care and treatment by Providers at times that are convenient for you
Avoiding unnecessary travel and allowing you to obtain medical care from the comfort and privacy of your home
Enabling ongoing care and follow-up communication with your Providers on your terms without travel or missed work or school
Possible risks: While the use of telehealth may provide numerous benefits, there are also potential risks. These risks include, but may not be limited to, the following:
The information transmitted to your Provider(s) may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical decision-making by the Provider(s)
The inability of your Provider(s) to conduct certain tests or assess vital signs in-person may in some cases prevent the Provider(s) from providing a diagnosis or treatment or from identifying the need for emergency care
Your Provider may not be able to provide medical treatment for a particular condition, and you may be required to seek alternative health care or emergency care services
Delays in medical evaluation or treatment could occur due to unavailability of Providers or the possibility of deficiencies or failures of the technology or electronic equipment used
In rare instances, security protocols or safeguards could fail, causing a breach of privacy
Given regulatory requirements in certain jurisdictions, your Provider(s) treatment options, especially pertaining to certain prescriptions,may be limited
In rare cases, a lack of access to all of your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors
