Telehealth involves the use of electronic communications to enable healthcare providers at different locations to share individual patient clinical information for the purpose of improving patient care. Telehealth services offered by Phzio (“Group”) may also include chart review, appointment scheduling, health information sharing, and non-clinical services, such as patient education. The information you provide may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or patient education, and may include any combination of the following:
The electronic communication systems we use will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient identification and imaging data and will include measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption. Our Group physical therapists and other healthcare professionals (our “providers”) are an addition to, and not a replacement for, your primary care physician. Responsibility for your overall medical care remains with your local primary care doctor, if you have one, and we strongly encourage you to locate one if you do not.
Delays in evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment and technologies.
In rare events, our provider may determine that the transmitted information is of inadequate quality, thus necessitating a rescheduled telehealth consult or a meeting with your local therapist or primary care doctor.
In very rare events, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.
In rare events, a lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors, although our Group physical therapists do not issue prescriptions. If you need to receive follow-up care, assistance in the event of an adverse reaction to the treatment, or in the event of an inability to communicate as a result of a technological or equipment failure, please contact Group at firstname.lastname@example.org or 855-470-1700 By checking the box associated with "Informed Consent", you acknowledge that you understand and agree with the following:
I have read this document carefully and understand the risks and benefits of the telehealth consultation and have had my questions regarding the procedure explained and I hereby give my informed consent to participate in a telehealth consultation under the terms described herein.
By checking the Box containing "INFORMED CONSENT FOR TELEHEALTH SERVICES" I hereby state that I have read, understood, and agree to the terms of this document.
Effective Date: June 22, 2016
Some of the Services require us to know more about you so that we can best meet your needs. When you access these Services, we may ask you to voluntarily provide us certain information that personally identifies (or could be used to personally identify) you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information includes (but is not limited to) the following categories of information: (1) contact data (such as your e-mail address and phone number); (2) demographic data (such as your gender, your date of birth and your zip code); (3) insurance data (such as your insurance carrier, insurance plan, member ID, group ID and payer ID); (4) medical data (such as the physical therapists, dentists or other health care providers (“Healthcare Providers”) you have visited, your reasons for visit, your dates of visit, your medical history, and other medical and health information you choose to share with us), and (5) other information that you voluntarily choose to provide to us, including without limitation SSN, unique identifiers such as passwords, and Personal Information in emails or letters that you send to us. You may still access and use some of the Services if you choose not to provide us with any Personal Information, but the features of the Services that require your Personal Information will not be accessible to you.
We also may automatically collect certain data when you use the Services, such as (1) IP address; (2) domain server; (3) type of device(s) used to access the Services; (4) web browser(s) used to access the Services; (5) referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Services; (6) geolocation information; and (7) other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the Services (collectively “Traffic Data”). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Information. We may also collect additional information, which may be Personal Information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent.
We collect information (including Personal Information and Traffic Data) when you use and interact with the Services, and in some cases from third party sources. Such information includes:
We may use tools outlined below in order to better understand users.
Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) allow you to reject Cookies or to alert you when a Cookie is placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device. You may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept Phzio’s Cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
You may opt out of receiving certain Cookies and certain trackers by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) opt out page or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) consumer opt-out page. When you use these opt-out features, an “opt-out” Cookie will be placed on your computer or tablet indicating that you do not want to receive interest-based advertising from NAI or DAA member companies. If you delete Cookies on your computer or tablet, you may need to opt out again. For information about how to opt out of interest-based advertising on mobile device identifiers, please visit http://www.applicationprivacy.org/expressing-your-behavioral-advertising-choices-on-a-mobile-device. Please note that even after opting out of interest-based advertising, you may still see Phzio’s advertisements that are not interest-based (i.e., not targeted toward you). Also, opting out does not mean that Phzio is no longer using Tracking Tools — Phzio still may collect information about your use of the Services even after you have opted out of interest-based advertisements and may still serve advertisements to you via the Services based on information it collects via the Services.
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website operator elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the website operator may refrain from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including Phzio, do not take action to respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
We use your information, including Personal Information, to provide the Services to you and to help improve them, including to:
We may use information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses Phzio and how we can deliver a better healthcare experience (for example, testing different kinds of emails has helped us understand when and how patients prefer to get Wellness Reminders for preventive care), or otherwise at our discretion.
We may disclose certain information that we collect from you:
We also may need to disclose your Personal Information or any other information we collect about you if we determine in good faith that such disclosure is needed to: (1) comply with applicable law, regulation, court order or other legal process; (2) protect the rights, property or safety of Phzio or another party; (3) enforce the Agreement or other agreements with you; or (4) respond to claims that any posting or other content violates third-party rights.
We may disclose information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) at our discretion.
We store and process your information on our servers in the United States and abroad. We maintain industry standard backup and archival systems.
Any information that you may reveal in a review posting or online discussion or forum is intentionally open to the public and is not in any way private. We recommend that you carefully consider whether to disclose any Personal Information in any public posting or forum. What you have written may be seen and/or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we are unable to control or predict.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We endeavor to follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and in storage. For example, when you enter sensitive information on our Site, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology.
If you are a registered user of the Services, you can modify some of the Personal Information you have included in your profile or change your username by logging in and accessing your account. If you wish to close your account, please email us at privacy@Phzio.com. Phzio will delete your account and the related information at your request as soon as reasonably possible. Please note, however, that Phzio reserves the right to retain information from closed accounts, including to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce the Agreement and take other actions permitted by law. You must promptly notify us if any of your account data is lost, stolen or used without permission.
The Services are not intended for use by children and children are prohibited from using the Services. Phzio does not knowingly collect any information from children, nor are the Services directed to children.
By accessing, using and/or submitting information to or through the Services, you represent that you are not younger than age 13. If we learn that we have received any information directly from a child under age 13 without his/her parent’s written consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his/her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he/she cannot use the Services and subsequently we will delete that information.
If you are between age thirteen (13) and the age of majority in your place of residence, you may use the Services only with the consent of or under the supervision of your parent or legal guardian. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a minor child, you may, in compliance with the Agreement, use the Services on behalf of such minor child. Any information that you provide us while using the Services on behalf of your minor child will be treated as Personal Information as otherwise provided herein.
Phzio provides telemedicine based physical therapy (“PT”) treatments on our PHZIO distance monitored PT treatment exercise platform, that may or may not be insurance reimbursable . The PHZIO system has the capability to manage and forwarding your health history forms and other health-related information to share with your healthcare providers (“Phzio Services”). As part of providing the Phzio Services, Phzio may collect, use, share, and exchange your health history forms and other health-related information with Your Healthcare Providers. Under a federal law called the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), some of this health and health-related information may be considered “protected health information” or “PHI” if such information is received from or on behalf of Your Healthcare Providers.
Safeguards for PHI: HIPAA protects the privacy and security of your PHI by limiting the uses and disclosures of PHI by most healthcare providers and by health plans (called “Covered Entities”) as well as companies, like Phzio, that provide certain types of assistance to Covered Entities (called “Business Associates”). Under certain circumstances described in HIPAA, an individual needs to sign an Authorization form before a Covered Entity, like Your Healthcare Provider(s), can disclose protected health information to a third party.
Your PHI Authorization: The purpose of this Phzio Authorization (“Authorization”) is to request your written permission to allow Phzio to use and disclose your PHI in the same way as we use and disclose your Non-PHI. If Phzio is a Business Associate of Your Healthcare Providers, Phzio needs your Authorization to be able to use and disclose your PHI in the same way it can currently use and disclose your Non-PHI when Phzio is not working on behalf of Your Healthcare Providers, but is instead working on its own behalf. Therefore, when Phzio relies on this Authorization, and uses and discloses PHI as described in this Authorization, it is not working as a Business Associate and the HIPAA requirements that apply to Business Associates will not apply to such uses and disclosures.
If you e-sign this Authorization, you give your permission to Phzio to retain your PHI and to use and/or disclose your PHI in the same way that you have agreed that your Non-PHI can be used and disclosed. Specifically, you agree that Phzio can use your PHI to:
You also agree that Phzio can disclose your PHI to:
Redisclosure: If Phzio discloses your PHI, Phzio will require that the person or entity receiving your PHI agrees to only use and disclose your PHI to carry out its specific business obligations to Phzio or for the permitted purpose of the disclosure (as described above). Phzio cannot, however, guarantee that any such person or entity to which Phzio discloses your PHI or other information will not re-disclose it in ways that you or we did not intend or permit.
Expiration and Revocation of Authorization: Your Authorization remains in effect until you provide written notice of revocation to Phzio. YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR MIND AND REVOKE THIS AUTHORIZATION AT ANY TIME AND FOR ANY (OR NO) REASON.
If you wish to revoke this Authorization, you must notify Phzio by submitting a revocation through your account settings page. Your decision not to execute this Authorization or to revoke it at any time will not affect your ability to use certain of the Phzio Services. A Revocation of Authorization is effective after you submit it to Phzio, but it does not have any effect on Phzio’s prior actions taken in reliance on the Authorization before revoked. Once Phzio receives your Revocation of Authorization, Phzio can only use and disclose your PHI as permitted in Phzio’s agreements with Your Healthcare Provider(s). Your Revocation of Authorization does not affect Phzio’s use of your Non-PHI.
We will make available to Your Healthcare Provider(s), current and past, your agreement to or revocation of this Authorization.
At Phzio, Patients First is our most important core value. It means we’re always working hard to keep your data safe and continually earn your trust. Keeping your information secure is a top priority for us. Here are some of the ways we protect it:
When signing up and using our PHZIO platform, you only need to share basic information, such as your name, email, sex, and date of birth insurance carrier information.
To make sure we’re always improving, we also analyze use of the service – such as the time of day you schedule an appointment, the specialties that you book most often, and the type of device you use. This data, like the rest of your information, is stored with security as a top priority. And Phzio never stores credit card information, bank account information, radiological images or reports, laboratory analysis, or diagnostic reports.
How do we use data?
When you book an appointment, we securely share your name, insurance details (if you provide them), date of birth, sex, and chosen appointment time with your physical therapist. If you choose to use Phzio Check-In (instead of a clipboard and pen in the physical therpist’s office), we relay to your physical therapist, on your behalf, any information you voluntarily provide.
We also analyze aggregated data, which cannot be connected back to any individual patient, to better understand different uses of EWellness and how we can deliver a better healthcare experience. For example, testing different kinds of emails has helped us understand when and how patients prefer to receive Wellness Reminders for preventive care. We may also use this non-identifiable data for projects that can benefit the world, like studying disease patterns or contributing to public health initiatives. And in the future, we might work with partners to help us accomplish these things.
Like other online businesses, we may show ads for our services on other websites or platforms. We never show you ads for third party products.
We will not share your personal information unless we have your consent or are required by law to do so. We never sell your personal information to any third parties. In all of these cases, our top concern and highest priority is the security of your data.
Phzio exists to improve your healthcare experience, and we hope you’ll make great use of our service. These terms explain your rights and responsibilities when using Phzio PHZIO system.

You are strongly advised to perform your own investigation prior to selecting the PHZIO platform by making confirming telephone calls to the appropriate licensing or certification authorities to verify listed credentials and education, and to further verify information about a particular Healthcare Provider by confirming with the Healthcare Provider’s office, your current Healthcare Providers, the medical association(s) relevant to the Healthcare Provider’s specialty and your state medical board(s).
Phzio uses reasonable efforts to ensure that physical therapist only participate in the Services if they hold all active licenses required by law to practice the specialties of the services offered by them, and are not excluded from participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Phzio may exclude Healthcare Providers who, in Phzio’s discretion, have engaged in inappropriate or unprofessional conduct.
Healthcare Providers listed through the Services with whom you may book appointments enter into contracts with us, and may pay us a fee in order to use our PHZIO platform for patient treatment visits. We will provide you with lists and/or profile previews of Healthcare Providers who may be suitable to provide the healthcare services you seek based on information that you provide to us (such as insurance information, geographical location, and healthcare specialty). In an effort to aid in the discovery of Healthcare Providers and enable the maximum choice and diversity of Healthcare Providers participating in the Services, these lists and/or profile previews may also be based on other criteria (including, for example, Healthcare Provider availability, past selections by and/or ratings of Healthcare Providers by you or by other Phzio users, and past experience of Phzio users with Healthcare Providers); but Phzio (a) does not recommend or endorse any Healthcare Providers, (b) does not make any representations or warranties with respect to these Healthcare Providers or the quality of the healthcare services they may provide, and (c) does not receive any additional fees from Healthcare Providers for featuring them (i.e., higher or better placement on lists) through the Services (subject to the Sponsored Results as described below). Note, however, to the extent that you use the Services as provided by your employer, Phzio may provide lists and/or profile previews based also on criteria determined by your employer and your employer’s agents or advisors.
We may show you sponsored results on the Site, including at the top of search results (“Sponsored Results”).

Sponsored Results shown through the Services are not, and should not be considered, an endorsement or recommendation by Phzio of the Healthcare Provider or healthcare organizations.
