Information and Documents required:
- You are solely responsible for the medical, health and personal information you provide. The advice of the doctor will depend upon the information you provide in.

Equipment and connectivity requirement:
- The services available on the website shall be provided to you via eMedHub Secured mobile & web application.
- Why You Should Not Use SMS, Skype or Email for Telemedicine:
- When ePHI created by a medical professional or a healthcare organization (covered entity) is stored by a third party, the covered entity is required to have a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with the third party storing the data. This BAA must include methods used by the third party to ensure the protection of the data and provisions for regular auditing of the data’s security.
- As copies of communications sent by SMS, Skype or email remain on service providers´ servers, and contain individually identifiable healthcare information, it would be necessary for the covered entity to have a BAA with (for example) Verizon, Skype or Google in order to be compliant with the HIPAA guidelines on telemedicine.
- As (for example) Verizon, Skype and Google will not enter into BAAs with covered entities for these services, the covered entity is liable for any fines or civil action should an unauthorized disclosure of ePHI occur due to the third party´s lack of HIPAA-compliant security measures. The covered entity would also likely fail any HIPAA audit for failing to conduct a suitable risk assessment – which might also affect the receipt of payments under the Meaningful Use incentive scheme.
- You understand and acknowledge that there will not be any physical examination involved and the online opinion shall be provided remotely. The opinion delivered by doctors shall solely be based on the verbal communication between doctors and patients and the test reports and other information provided/uploaded by you on the application.
- eMedHub shall not be liable for misdiagnosis / faulty judgment / interpretation error / perception error/Adverse events/ inefficacy of prescribed treatment or advice/validity of the advice or prescription provided by the consulting Doctor in your country of residence/ unavailability of the recommended or prescribed treatment or medication under any condition or circumstances. Users are advised to use their discretion for following the advice obtained post consultation.
- eMedHUb e-consultation Services are not meant in any way for emergency and life- threatening conditions. It is advised to take the patient to the nearest hospital in such cases
