General Policy about Telemedicine:

All policies relevant to traditional office visits, HIPAA and patient care policies apply. Visits are coordinated through a secure patient portal, coded and billed as per practice standards. Telemedicine involves the use of electronic communications to enable health care providers at different locations to share individual patient medical information for the purpose of improving patient care. Providers may include primary care practitioners, specialists, and/or subspecialists. The information may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow-up and/or education, and may include any of the following:

· Patient medical records

· Medical images

· Live two-way audio and video

· Output data from medical devices and sound and video files

Electronic systems used 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.

This service can be utilized and applicable in special situations such as travel constraints, but not are limited to a reasonable limitation to physically present to our office.

Limitations:

Managing your oral disorder, condition, or disease via telemedicine appointment may sometimes not be a practical method considering a physical exam or a procedure may be critical to your prognosis.

Possible Risks:

As with any clinical service[s] or procedure[s], there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:

· information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical decision making by the physician

· Rarely, delays in medical evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment

· In very rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information.

· In rare cases, a lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors.
