This electronic material contained within this website and app (herein by, "the platform") is intended to provide you with detailed information about the policies, programs, agreements and consents of HerpAlert. Please read each section thoroughly before making your final decision to move forward with the potential diagnosis and treatment process.
I,, understand, agree and certify that the consents, agreements and policies contained on the platform shall be considered equivalent to traditional paper copies and I certify that my electronic signatures, electronic initials, auto-filled name and check boxes shall serve the legal equivalent of a physical, signed document. Moreover, I certify that the medical information I provide will be accurate and complete. I also understand and agree that this general consent will remain in effect for any and all treatments I choose, and may be supplemented in the future by written, electronic or verbal information from HerpAlert in the future.
I, , understand that HerpAlert utilizes a comprehensive team of healthcare professionals to assist, assess, implement and supervise patient diagnosis and treatment. These individuals may include physicians (MDs/DOs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), Physician Assistants (PAs), Registered Nurses (RNs) and ancillary non-medical, administrative staff. I acknowledge that I may be treated by any of, any combination of, or even all of these allied health care professionals during the course of my potential diagnosis and treatment.
I, , understand and agree that diagnosis and treatment offered by HerpAlert are not covered by public or private insurance plans. I understand that HerpAlert will not submit any claims to any insurance carriers. I understand that payment is due before services are rendered. I fully acknowledge that I am personally responsible for all fees and charges incurred in connection with my purchase, and I completely understand that there is absolutely NO refunding of any patient fees, payments, charges, credit, gift certificates, product purchases, pre-paid packages or services. HerpAlert prides itself on patient satisfaction but I understand and agree that HerpAlert also retains the right to refuse service to anyone.
I, , understand, agree and consent that HerpAlert and their employees, independent contractors, associates, agents and representatives participate in Telehealth (telemedicine), and will require that photographs and/or use video (for "store & forward" or teleconferencing technology) of the area to be diagnosed and treated. These recordings will be available only to our medical staff members. HerpAlert follows HIPAA guidelines regarding patient confidentiality and privacy, therefore recordings are used internally. Only the treated area/area to be assessed will be shown in these photographs and videos.
I, , understand and agree that HerpAlert will contact me. I will allow this communication to come in the form of live telephone calls, automated telephone appointment reminder calls, text messages, e-mails, electronic surveys, App notifications, U.S mail, social media or by any means convenient to HerpAlert. I understand that HerpAlert may also send other communications informing me of changes to office policies, new technology, announcements and specials that I may find invaluable or informative. I understand that I may opt out of any or all communication measures any time by contacting HerpAlert in writing.
I, , understand that I have a right to view a copy of my medical records. In accordance with state regulations, I understand that there may be a "reasonable fee" associated with copying medical records. At HerpAlert this fee typically consists of an administrative charge of $10.00 plus $0.25 for each black & white page, and $1.00 per color page and photograph. This fee may be altered or amended depending on the specific state in which you are located. I understand that this administrative fee must be received prior to the printing and mailing of the records. All documents will be printed and then physically mailed to an address that you provid. I understand that medical records (including photos) will not be transmitted via e-mail or fax.
I, , agree and certify that I have had ample time to read this electronic agreement in its entirety, and that I have thoroughly reviewed each and every section that I have signed and/or initialed electronically. I also certify that I have not taken any medication that might impair my ability to understand this information, and was not rushed or pressured to agree and/or certify to the information contained herein.
I, , understand that many states have laws regarding the exposure and/or transmission of an STD (sexually transmitted disease). I acknowledge that HerpAlert cannot offer information or advice to me in this regard and I agree to seek a legal opinion from an attorney in my state on this matter if necessary. Furthermore, I agree that the disclosure of my sexual health history to past, present, and future partners is my own responsibility. I understand that HSV (herpes simplex virus) cannot be cured and having HSV any necessitate continued treatment over time.
I,, understand and agree that if my suspected herpes lesions persist or worsen, or if any other medical condition or symptom arises, I will promptly follow up with a healthcare provider in-person. I certify that my health care is my sole responsibility and HerpAlert only provides temporary treatment for the symptoms herpes simplex virus.
I, , understand that a cure for herpes or cold sores is not possible. I do understand that the frequency and duration of a herpes or cold sore outbreak can be minimized with prompt treatment via an oral anti-viral medication and that is the reason I am seeking care from HerpAlert.
I, , understand that HerpAlert offers a traditional diagnosis of herpes and cold sores via an electronic review of a patient's history, current symptom(s), and/or electronic clinical pictures. I do understand that alternatives to diagnosis exist and include, but are not limited to, a microscopic evaluation of an active herpes sore or a PCR blood test. As such, by utilizing HerpAlert, I am agreeing to be diagnosed via the traditional method of clinical information evaluation. I understand and agree that if I am interested in diagnosis via another means, I will make arrangements to be evaluated in-person by a healthcare provider in my area.
I, , understand that HerpAlert may provide a prescription anti-viral medication to me. This medication is provided at the sole discretion of the prescribing doctor. While I may request a specific medication, dose, or amount, I fully understand that the healthcare practitioner has no obligation to fulfill my request. Because the treatment of herpes and cold sores is completely voluntary and elective, an alternative option is no treatment at all.
I, , understand that HerpAlert may not provide me with a refill of the anti-viral medication I have been prescribed. I understand that I will have to reuse the HerpAlert platform, pay another fee, and request a new medication when the need arises.
I, , understand that the having one sexually transmitted infection (like herpes or cold sores) statistically increases the likelihood of having a different sexually transmitted infection. I agree that it is my sole responsibility to seek diagnosis and treatment of all other sexually transmitted infections and diseases as well as for the care of my overall health.
I, , understand that any prescription medication can have side effects. I certify that I will discuss all potential side effects with the pharmacy staff when I pick up the medication I am prescribed.
