Telehealth Consent

Upgrade Health Inc. dba Live Forever Health’s Consent to Participate in Telemedicine Health Services

Last revised June 31st, 2023

Purpose

The purpose of this form is to provide you with information about telemedicine and to obtain your informed consent to participate in Upgrade Health Inc. dba Live Forever Health’s telemedicine health service as part of your medical care.

Nature of Telemedicine

Telemedicine involves the use of electronic communications to enable a health care provider and a patient at different locations to share medical information for the purpose of evaluation, diagnosis, consultation, or treatment of the patient. The delivery of healthcare via telemedicine allows the patient and provider to establish a relationship, like they would during a traditional face-to-face appointment. For example, your telemedicine encounter may include interaction through and with the use of the internet, recorded audio communications, physical examinations, medical imaging, medical tests, and diagnoses, as well as related technologies known as “store-and- forward.”

Benefits

The benefits of telemedicine include improved access to medical services and care, including the expertise of specialists and consultants that may not otherwise be available to you. Telemedicine also permits increased efficiency in evaluations, diagnoses, consultations, and treatment.

Potential Risks

The potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine are rare but include delays in medical evaluation and treatment due to equipment failures or information transmission deficiencies (such as poor image resolution); breach of privacy of protected health information due to security breaches or failures; and adverse drug interactions, allergic reactions, complications, or other errors due to patient’s failure to provide complete medical information or records.

Alternatives

Alternative methods of care may be available to you, such as in-person services. Your provider will explain any such options to you, and you may choose an alternative at any time.

Follow-up Care; Emergency Situations

In some situations, telemedicine is not an appropriate method of care.
