Informed‌ ‌Consent‌ ‌of‌ ‌Services‌ ‌Performed‌ ‌by‌ ‌DocTalkGo‌ ‌Telemedicine‌ ‌involves‌ ‌the‌ ‌use‌ ‌of‌ ‌electronic‌ ‌communications‌ ‌to‌ ‌enable‌ ‌healthcare‌ ‌providers‌ ‌at‌ ‌different‌ ‌locations‌ ‌to‌ ‌share‌ ‌individual‌ ‌patient‌ ‌medical‌ ‌information‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌purpose‌ ‌of‌ ‌improving‌ ‌patient‌ ‌care.‌ ‌Providers‌ ‌may‌ ‌include‌ ‌primary‌ ‌care‌ ‌practitioners,‌ ‌specialists,‌ ‌and/or‌ ‌subspecialists.‌ ‌The‌ ‌information‌ ‌may‌ ‌be‌ ‌used‌ ‌for‌ ‌diagnosis,‌ ‌therapy,‌ ‌follow-up‌ ‌and/or‌ ‌education,‌ ‌and‌ ‌may‌ ‌include‌ ‌any‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌following:‌ ‌

Expected‌ ‌Benefits:‌ ‌

  • Improved‌ ‌access‌ ‌to‌ ‌medical‌ ‌care‌ ‌by‌ ‌enabling‌ ‌a‌ ‌patient‌ ‌to‌ ‌remain‌ ‌in‌ ‌his/her‌ ‌local‌ ‌healthcare‌ ‌site‌ ‌(i.e.‌ ‌home)‌ ‌while‌ ‌the‌ ‌physician‌ ‌consults‌ ‌and‌ ‌obtains‌ ‌test‌ ‌results‌ ‌at‌ ‌distant/other‌ ‌sites.‌ ‌

  • In‌ ‌rare‌ ‌cases,‌ ‌the‌ ‌consultant‌ ‌may‌ ‌determine‌ ‌that‌ ‌the‌ ‌transmitted‌ ‌information‌ ‌is‌ ‌of‌ ‌inadequate‌ ‌quality,‌ ‌thus‌ ‌necessitating‌ ‌a‌ ‌face-‌ ‌to-face‌ ‌meeting‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌patient,‌ ‌or‌ ‌at‌ ‌least‌ ‌a‌ ‌rescheduled‌ ‌video‌ ‌consult.‌ ‌
  • Delays‌ ‌in‌ ‌medical‌ ‌evaluation‌ ‌and‌ ‌treatment‌ ‌could‌ ‌occur‌ ‌due‌ ‌to‌ ‌deficiencies‌ ‌or‌ ‌failures‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌equipment.‌ ‌
  • In‌ ‌very‌ ‌rare‌ ‌instances,‌ ‌security‌ ‌protocols‌ ‌could‌ ‌fail,‌ ‌causing‌ ‌a‌ ‌breach‌ ‌of‌ ‌privacy‌ ‌of‌ ‌personal‌ ‌medical‌ ‌information.‌ ‌
  • In‌ ‌rare‌ ‌cases,‌ ‌a‌ ‌lack‌ ‌of‌ ‌access‌ ‌to‌ ‌complete‌ ‌medical‌ ‌records‌ ‌may‌ ‌result‌ ‌in‌ ‌adverse‌ ‌drug‌ ‌interactions‌ ‌or‌ ‌allergic‌ ‌reactions‌ ‌or‌ ‌other‌ ‌judgment‌ ‌errors.‌ ‌
