TELEMEDICINE CONSENT FORM

 

PLEASE READ THE TELEMEDICINE CONSENT FORM.  DOWNLOAD PDF, SIGN AND UPLOAD FORM VIA PATIENT PORTAL.  YOU MAY ALSO GIVE A VERBAL CONSENT.


I. Introduction. Telemedicine involves the real-time evaluation, diagnosis, consultation on, and treatment of a health condition using advanced telecommunications technology, which may include the use of interactive audio, video, or other electronic media. As such, telemedicine allows the provider to see and communicate with the patient in real-time. 


II. Consent for Treatment. I voluntarily request Amir Salim MDPA physician(s) and such associates, technical assistants and other health care providers as they may deem necessary to participate in my medical care through the use of telemedicine. I understand that Amir Salim MDPA Telemedicine Providers (i) may practice in a different location than where I present for medical care, (ii) may not have the opportunity to perform an in-person physical examination, and (iii) rely on information provided by me. I acknowledge that Amir Salim MDPA Telemedicine Providers’ advice, recommendations, and/or decision may be based on factors not within their control, such as incomplete or innacurate data provided by me or distortions of diagnostic images or specimens that may result from electronic transmissions. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to provide information about my medical history, condition and care that is complete and accurate to the best of my ability. I understand that the practice of medicine is not an exact science and that no warranties or guarantees are made to me as to result or cure. If Amir Salim MDPA Telemedicine Providers determine that the telemedicine services do not adequately address my medical needs, they may require an in-person medical evaluation. In the event the telemedicine session is interrupted due to a technological problem or equipment failure, alternative means of communication may be implemented or an in-person medical evaluation may be necessary. If I experience an urgent matter, such as a bad reaction to any treatment after a telemedicine session, I should alert my treating physician and, in the case of emergencies dial 911, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department. 


III. Release of Information. To facilitate the provision of care and/or treatment through telemedicine, I voluntarily request and authorize the disclosure of all and any part of my medical record (including oral information) to Amir Salim MDPA Telemedicine Providers. I understand and agree that the information I am authorizing to be released may include: 1) AIDS/HIV test results, diagnosis, treatment, and related information: 2) drug screen results and information about drug and alcohol use and treatment; 3) mental health information; and 4) genetic information. I understand that the disclosure of my medical information to Amir Salim MDPA Telemedicine Providers, including the audio and/or video, will be by electronic transmission. Although precautions are taken to protect the confidentiality of this information by preventing unauthorized review, I understand that electronic transmission of data, video images, and audio is new and developing technology and that confidentiality may be compromised by failures of security safeguards or illegal and improper tampering.  I certify that this form has been fully explained to me, that I have read it or have had it read to me, and that I understand its contents. 


Patient Complaint Procedure

While we hope every patient’s visit goes smoothly, it is important that we are notified of patient concerns so we can take the appropriate steps to address them. A patient has the right to communicate a verbal or written complaint or concern regarding any aspect of his/her visit (i.e. medical care, service, conditions, billing) and expect a timely response. If you have comments, questions, or concerns, we recommend that you or your representative: • Discuss them with your immediate caregiver, or • Speak to the manager of the clinic or service in which you are receiving care, or • If you believe your questions or concerns have not been adequately addressed, you may request a review by contacting Amir Salim MDPA at 281-557-0707 or in writing at the address below: AMIR SALIM MDPA 450 N. Texas Ave. Ste C Webster, TX 77598
