LINKS AND THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS-
YOU AND ONLY YOU, CAN APPROVE ACCESS TO THIRD PARTIES AND SERVICE PROVIDERS TO VIEW AND COPY YOUR HOME HEALTH CARE INFORMATION. So keep in mind that if you grant such third parties access to your health information, Orah will not and cannot be responsible for their content, performance what they choose to do with your information or their privacy practices.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a US healthcare law that establishes requirements for the use, disclosure, and safeguarding of individually identifiable health information. It applies to covered entities—doctors’ offices, hospitals, health insurers, and other healthcare companies—with access to patient's’ protected health information (PHI), as well as to business associates, such as cloud service and IT providers, that process PHI on their behalf. The scope of HIPAA was extended with the enactment of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. Together, HIPAA and HITECH Act rules include:
The HIPAA Privacy Rule, which focuses on the right of individuals to control the use of their personal information, and covers the confidentiality of PHI, limiting its use and disclosure.
The HIPAA Security Rule, which sets the standards for administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect electronic PHI from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. It also includes such organizational requirements as Business Associate Agreements (BAAs).
The HITECH Breach Notification Final Rule, which requires giving notice to individuals and the government when a breach of unsecured PHI occurs.
HIPAA regulations require that covered entities and their business associates when it provides services to covered entities—enter into contracts to ensure that those business associates will adequately protect PHI. These contracts, or BAAs, clarify and limit how the business associate can handle PHI, and set forth each party’s adherence to the security and privacy provisions set forth in HIPAA and the HITECH Act. In many circumstances, for a covered healthcare company or a business associate to use Orah’s Site, products or services, the covered entity or business associate must agree in a written agreement to adhere to certain security and privacy provisions set out in HIPAA and the HITECH Act.
Once a BAA is in place, Orah customers who are covered entities or business associates can use its services to process and store PHI.
Confidentiality and Security
We have taken reasonable and necessary steps to ensure that all information collected will remain secure and in its original form, i.e., free from any alteration. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and administrative procedures in an effort to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online.
Neither Party shall use or disclose to any person, either during the term or after the termination of these Terms, any source or object codes, technical data, correspondence or any other information or materials owned or provided by the other Party or its Affiliates, or its clients or contractors hereunder (collectively, “Confidential Information”), or disclose any information concerning the contents of these Terms, except for purposes consistent with the administration and performance of a Party’s obligations hereunder or as required by law.
Orah is not responsible for and will not be a party to any transactions between you and a third party provider of products, information or services. Orah does not monitor such transactions to ensure the confidentiality of the PHI you have provided to us, including credit card information. Any separate charges or obligations you incur in your dealings with these third parties linked to Orah’s Site are solely your responsibility.
While we follow generally accepted methods of security, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect any PHI, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at email@example.com.
You may request access to the PHI you have provided to us and request information about our collection, use and disclosure of such information by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We use best efforts to keep our records as accurate and complete as possible. You can help us maintain the accuracy of such information by notifying us of any changes to such personal information. Your rights to access the personal information you provide are not absolute. We may deny you access when required by law or if disclosure would likely reveal personal information about a third party.
Research and Training-
Limitation of what we use or share-
You can ask us not to use or share certain health information, for treatment, payment for our operations. We are not required to agree to your request and we may say “no” if it would affect your care.
If you pay for a service or health care item out-of-pocket in full, you can ask us not to share that information for the purpose of payment or our operations with your health insurer. We will say “yes” unless a law requires us to share that information.
Disclosure for Marketing Purposes-
Compliance with the Law-
Subject to the Terms above, Orah enables the use of audio, photos, video or other electronic communications to and/or to diagnose and/or treat You, Parent or loved one. You will likely communicate details of You or of others medical and protected health information, through the use of interactive video, photos, audio or other telecommunications technology. If you become a member, Your Health Professional/Caregiver will have access to your history and may take video, photos, and/or audio recordings.
Electronic systems used will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information and imaging data, and will include measures to safeguard the data’s integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption. As discussed more fully in the Terms above, however, privacy and security cannot be guaranteed.
Accountability and Verification of the Care of You or a loved one which enables them to remain in their location while the Health Professional communicates with an assigned Member from a distant site.
As with any medical or mental health care, there are potential risks associated with the use of Orah. These risks include, but may not be limited to, the following:
In some cases, applicable law may prevent Your Health Professional from providing the services You desire.
In some cases, Your Health Professional may conclude that the information transmitted is not sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images), or on some other basis the nature of Your problem is such that it does not allow for appropriate medical or mental health decision-making without an in-person evaluation;
Delays in medical or mental health evaluation/treatment could occur owing to deficiencies or failures of the electronic equipment or of the electric power needed to run it;
Security protocols could fail, causing a breach or privacy of personal medical or mental health information;
The physical examination Your Health Professional can perform through Orah is necessarily more limited than that which is possible in in-person care, so information that can be obtained only by means of an in-person physical examination will not be available to permit diagnosis. This could result in misdiagnosis, which in turn could lead to treatment that is not helpful, or that could even be harmful.
In some cases, a lack of access to Your complete medical or mental health records may increase the risk of misdiagnosis, adverse drug interactions, allergic reactions or other unintended results.
Because Orah provides a relatively new approach to health care, there may be risks, including potentially serious risks, that cannot be mentioned here because they have not yet been identified.
By accepting this form (which is equivalent to signing and agreeing to the Terms and the Informed Consent Addendum), I understand the following:
1. The information a Health Aide conveys is not intended to be, nor is it, medical care, nor mental health care, nor a substitute for medical or mental health care. Since Orah does not monitor the information that Health Aides using it provide to Consumers, and since Orah is not qualified to evaluate the quality of a Health Aide services even if it did, Orah cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information provided nor that the Consumer will benefit from hearing it.

Orah does not provide medical advice and is not a substitute for professional medical advice or treatment. You should not use this information to diagnose or treat a health problem or disease without consulting with a qualified healthcare provider. Please consult your healthcare provider with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your condition.
2. I have the right to withhold or withdraw my consent to the use of Orah in the course of My care at any time, and if I do I will not be penalized in any way.
3. I may inspect some types of information obtained and recorded in the course of a Orah interaction, may, for a reasonable fee, receive copies of this information.
4. As I read these Terms, including this Informed Consent Addendum, I am not under the influence of any substance or medication that impairs my understanding, nor am I aware of any illness or medical or mental health condition that impairs my understanding.
