Consent for Treatment Performed
Telemedicine involves the use of communications to enable healthcare providers at sites remote from patients to provide consultative services. Providers may include primary care providers, behavioral health providers and other primary healthcare related providers (e.g. dieticians). The information may be used for diagnosis, treatment, therapy, counselling, follow-up and/or education, and may include live two-way audio and video and other materials (e.g., medical records, 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 intentional or unintentional corruption. At the end of each visit, the patient will be provided a visit summary, which may be kept for the patient’s records and may be shared with the patient’s local primary care or other provider, as appropriate.
Anticipated Benefits of Telemedicine:
- Improved access to medical care by enabling a patient to remain at his or her home or office while consulting a clinician.
- More efficient medical evaluation and management.
Possible Risks of Telemedicine:
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. Provider believes that the likelihood of these risks materializing is very low. These risks may include, without limitation, the following:

- I understand that telemedicine may involve electronic communication of my personal medical/behavioral health information to medical practitioners who may be located anywhere in the state of Georgia, USA.
- I understand that I may expect the anticipated benefits from the use of telemedicine in my care, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured.
- I understand that my healthcare information may be shared with others (including health care providers and health insurers) for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations purposes. Psychotherapy notes are maintained by clinicians but are not shared with others, while billing codes and visit summaries are shared with others and with me. If I obtain psychotherapy from Provider, I understand that my therapist has the right to limit the information provided to me if in my therapist’s professional judgment sharing the information with me would be harmful to me.
- I further understand that my healthcare information may be shared in the following circumstances:
- When a valid court order is issued for medical records.
- Reporting suspected abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.
- Preventing or reducing a serious threat to anyone’s health or safety.
