7. MEDICAL AND TELEMEDICINE DISCLAIMERS
OUR SERVICES ARE SIMPLY TOOLS TO BE USED TO ASSIST IN COORDINATION OF CARE. THE INFORMATION PROVIDED THROUGH OUR SERVICES IS NOT INTENDED AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR, NOR DOES IT REPLACE, CLINICAL EXPERTISE, PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL ADVICE, EXAMINATION, DIAGNOSIS, OR TREATMENT.
Providers: Our Services are a venue for general information and communication purposes only and intended to facilitate communication between you and other healthcare and medical professionals, including without limitation, doctors, physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants and other healthcare service providers (“Providers”).
Some Providers are independent third parties unaffiliated with Company that utilize our Services to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from such Provider, and not from Company. Your interactions with Providers via our Services are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular healthcare providers. Company will not be responsible or liable for any repercussions arising from compromised data, information, images, audio, video or material supplied by you, and you are responsible for the integrity, accuracy, completeness and quality of the submissions supplied.
Company will not obtain, nor does it intend to qualify for any professional healthcare or medical license or approval of any kind to provide access to our Services. Company does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers using the Services, and you understand and agree that Company does not evaluate the quality of care provided by any Provider.
Neither Company nor any of its licensors or suppliers or any third parties who promote our Services or provide you with a link to our Services shall be liable for any professional or medical advice or service you obtain via our Services nor for any information obtained from our Services. Members are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider and maintaining your own medication and healthcare regimens. You acknowledge your reliance on any Provider or information provided by our Services is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risk associated therewith.
No Medical Advice; No Patient-Doctor Relationship. Content available and provided through our Services are to be used for general information purposes only, not as a substitute for in-person evaluation or specific medical advice. Company will not give users a list of all of the significant risks and considerations necessary to make an informed written consent regarding any treatment. Complete information, including the risks and benefits of a particular medication or treatment, may only be obtained from, and an informed written consent may only be provided to, a duly licensed and qualified medical professional responsible for you or your Beneficiary’s care and treatment.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT ALTHOUGH SOME OF THE CONTENT THAT IS PROVIDED TO YOU THROUGH OUR SERVICES IS MEDICAL IN NATURE, IT DOES NOT CREATE A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OPINION, MEDICAL ADVICE, EXAMINATION, DIAGNOSIS OR TREATMENT OF ANY PARTICULAR CONDITION. NO PATIENT-DOCTOR OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIPS SHALL BE FORMED ON OR THROUGH USE OF OUR SERVICES.
Communications Not Privileged: Communications on or through our Services are not the subject of any particular privileges, including, without limitation, the doctor-patient privilege. Communications on or through our Services are limited, do not involve in-person evaluations or visits, and do not include safeguards and procedures typical of in-person evaluations by and visits with healthcare professionals.
Telemedicine: Telemedicine involves the use of communications to enable Providers at sites remote from patients to provide healthcare services. Your communications with Providers may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or education, and may include live two-way audio and video and other materials (e.g., data from medical devices).
The communications systems used will incorporate reasonable security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient information and will include reasonable measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against corruption or unauthorized access or disclosure; however, no safeguards are perfect and the security of your information depends, in large part, on you and the security of your computer systems and networks.
As with any healthcare consultation or medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks may include without limitation: (i) delays in medical evaluation, consultation, or treatment may occur due to deficiencies or failures of computer and telecommunication equipment; (ii) security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal information, including without limitation PHI or patient-identifiable information.
By accepting and agreeing to this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree with the following:
The laws that protect privacy and confidentiality of medical information also apply to telemedicine, and you have received the HIPAA Acknowledgement, which explains these issues in greater detail.
Telemedicine may involve electronic communication of my personal medical information to Providers who may be located in other areas, including out of state.
Although telemedicine has numerous potential benefits, no results can be guaranteed or assured.
Your personal medical information may be shared with others (including Providers and insurers) for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations purposes.If you obtain healthcare services from a Provider, your Provider has the right to limit the information provided to you if in your Provider’s professional judgment sharing the information with you could be harmful to you.
YOU HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE INFORMATION PROVIDED ABOVE, AND UNDERSTAND THE RISKS OF TELEMEDICINE, AND BY ACCEPTING THIS AGREEMENT YOU HEREBY GIVE YOUR INFORMED CONSENT TO PARTICIPATE IN TELEMEDICINE VISIT UNDER THE TERMS DESCRIBED HEREIN.

19. DISPUTE RESOLUTION; BINDING ARBITRATION
EXCEPT FOR DISPUTES THAT QUALIFY FOR SMALL CLAIMS COURT, ALL DISPUTES ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY ASPECT OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOU, ON THE ONE HAND, AND COMPANY, ITS EMPLOYEES, SUPPLIERS OR VENDORS, ON THE OTHER HAND, WHETHER BASED IN CONTRACT, TORT, STATUTE, FRAUD, MISREPRESENTATION, OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY, WILL BE RESOLVED THROUGH FINAL AND BINDING ARBITRATION BEFORE A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF IN A COURT BY A JUDGE OR JURY AND YOU AGREE THAT COMPANY AND YOU ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO TRIAL BY A JURY. YOU AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED AND YOU ARE AGREEING TO GIVE UP THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) under its Consumer Arbitration Rules (currently available at https://www.adr.org/Rules), as amended by this Agreement. The arbitrator will conduct hearings, if any, by teleconference or videoconference, rather than by personal appearances, unless the arbitrator determines upon request by you or by us that an in-person hearing is appropriate. Any in-person appearances will be held at a location which is reasonably convenient to both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, such determination should be made by the AAA or by the arbitrator. If you are able to demonstrate that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, Company has the option, but not the obligation, to pay as much of your filing and hearing fees in connection with the arbitration as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. The arbitrator’s decision will follow the terms of this Agreement and will be final and binding. The arbitrator will have authority to award temporary, interim, or permanent injunctive relief, or relief providing for specific performance of this Agreement, but only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the individual claim before the arbitrator. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be confirmed and enforced in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, nothing in this Agreement will preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies and, if the law allows, they can seek relief against us for you.
With the exception of any of the language above in this Dispute Resolution provision relating to the waiver of class and representative actions, if a court decides that any part of this Dispute Resolution provision is invalid or unenforceable, the other parts of this Dispute Resolution provision shall still apply. If a court decides that any aspect of the language above in this Dispute Resolution provision relating to the waiver of class and representative actions is invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Dispute Resolution provision shall be null and void. Solely in the event the entirety of this Dispute Resolution provision is to be null and void in accordance with the immediately preceding sentence, any legal suit, action, or proceeding arising out of, or related to, this Agreement, our Services, their respective Content or your use of the foregoing, shall be instituted exclusively in the federal courts of the United States or the courts of the State of Tennessee, in each case located in the City of Nashville and County of Davidson, Tennessee. The remainder of this Agreement will continue to apply and be unaffected by this severability provision.
21. LIMITATION ON TIME TO FILE CLAIM

You may not assign, transfer, or delegate this Agreement (including your account) or any part thereof without Company’s prior written consent. Company may freely transfer, assign, or delegate all or any part of this Agreement, and any rights or duties hereunder or thereunder.
