Informed consent for services performed via telehealth/telemedicine
The delivery of healthcare through services using communication tools such as a cell/telephone, live two-way audio and video, remote patient monitoring, or other electronic means, is called “telemedicine”. Telemedicine involves the use of electronic communications to enable healthcare providers who are remote from patients to provide care and services. The information gathered/accessed may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up, therapy or education and may include information from existing medical history or records.
The communication systems used will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect your confidentiality and will include measures to secure the data against intentionally/unintentional corruptions or access. It is your responsibility to be in a secure/private location where your telehealth encounter can occur. Do not use telehealth services in a public location, or on a public computer.
As with office-based face-to-face visits, a visit summary will be made available to you if you request. This summary can be kept for your records or shared with another healthcare provider of your choosing (e.g., specialist or other provider).
