Acknowledgement of Reciept of the Notice of Privacy Practices
I hereby acknowledge that I have read and received a copy of the Notice of Privacy Practices, with an effective date listed.
Welcome to our practice. We intend to provide you with the care and service that you expect and deserve. Achieving your best possible health requires a “partnership” between you and your doctor. As our “partner in health,” we ask you to help us in the following ways:
Schedule Visits with My Doctor for Routine Physical Exams and Other
Recommended Health Screenings
I understand that my doctor will explain to me which regular health screenings are appropriate for my age, gender, and personal and family history. I understand I will need to complete these recommended health screenings (mammogram, immunizations, pap smears etc). These health screenings are tests that can help detect life-threatening diseases and conditions. If I visit my doctor only for treatment of immediate problems and forget to arrange for regular health screenings, I put myself at risk of letting serious health problems go undetected. I will schedule regular visits with my doctor to complete my physical exam and to discuss these health screenings.
Keep Follow-up Appointments and Reschedule Missed Appointments
I understand that my doctor will want to know how my condition progresses after I leave the office. Returning to my doctor on time gives him or her the chance to check my condition and my response to treatment. During a follow-up appointment, my doctor might order tests, refer me to a specialist, prescribe medication, or even discover and treat a serious health condition. If I miss an appointment and don’t reschedule, I run the risk that my physician will not be able to detect and treat a serious health condition. I will make every effort to reschedule missed appointments as soon as possible.
Call the Office When I Do Not Hear the Results of Labs and Other Tests
I understand that my physician’s goal is to report my lab and test results to me as soon as possible. However, if I do not hear from my physician’s office within the time specified, I will call the office for my test results.
Inform My Doctor if I Decide Not to Follow His or Her Recommended
I understand that after examining me, my doctor may make certain recommendations based on what he or she feels is best for my health. This might include prescribing medication, referring me to a specialist, ordering labs and tests, or even asking me to return to the office within a certain period of time. I understand that not following my treatment plan can have serious negative effects on my health. I will let my doctor know whenever I decide not to follow his or her recommendations so that he or she may fully inform me of any risks associated with my decision to delay or refuse treatment.

1. PURPOSE. The purpose of this form is to obtain your consent for a telemedicine consultation with a health care provider.
2. NATURE OF TELEMEDICINE CONSULTATION. Telemedicine involves the use of audio, video or other electronic communications to interact with you, consult with your healthcare provider and/or review your medical information for the purpose of diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or education. During your telemedicine consultation, details of your medical history and personal health information may be discussed with other health professionals through the use of interactive video, audio, and telecommunications technology. Additionally, a physical examination of you may take place and video, audio, and/or photo recordings may be taken.
3. RISKS, BENEFITS AND ALTERNATIVES. The benefits of telemedicine include having access to health care providers and additional medical information and education without having to travel outside of your local health care community. A potential risk of telemedicine is that because of your specific medical condition, or due to technical problems, a face-to-face consultation still may be necessary after the telemedicine appointment. Additionally, in rare circumstances, security protocols could fail causing a breach of patient privacy. The alternative to telemedicine consultation is a face-to-face visit with a health care provider.
4. MEDICAL INFORMATION AND RECORDS. All laws concerning patient access to medical records and copies of medical records apply to telemedicine. Dissemination of any patient identifiable images or information from the telemedicine consultation to researchers or other entities shall not occur without your consent.
5. CONFIDENTIALITY. All existing confidentiality protections under federal and California law apply to Information used or disclosed during your telemedicine consultation.
6. RIGHTS. You may withhold or withdraw your consent to a telemedicine consultation at any time Before and/or during the consult without affecting your right to future care or treatment, or risking The loss or withdrawal of any program benefits to which you would otherwise be entitled.
My healthcare provider has discussed with me the information provided above. I understand that the telemedicine services provided to me will be billed to my health insurance company and that I will be billed for any patient responsibility. If your insurance does not cover telemedicine, payment is due prior to telemedicine services. I have had an opportunity to ask questions about this information and all of my questions have been answered. I have read and agree to a telemedicine consultation.
