Telemedicine involves the delivery of health care services using electronic communications, information technology, or other means between a health care provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. Telemedicine may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or related patient education, and may include, but is not limited to:
· Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information, or other data between a patient and health care provider;
· Interactions between a patient and health care provider via audio, video, and/or data communications; and
· Use of output data from medical devices, sound, and video files.
The electronic systems used in the Services 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 to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH VIAPROMEDS
We are a technology company that makes available to individuals who register as users of the Service (“Users”) certain products and services sold or offered by VIAPROMEDS or by third-party medical providers, pharmacies, or other vendors. Our Service provides access to prescription fulfillment services offered by the following medical provider: Linares Medical Group (the “Medical Group”) and laboratory services from the following laboratory: ProficientRx (the “Lab”). By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that any services you receive from the Lab or Medical Group through the Platform are also subject to this Agreement, and that the Lab, and Medical Group are third-party beneficiaries of this Agreement.
With respect to the Lab, and the Medical Group, we act solely as a technology platform to connect you with the products and services offered by the Lab and Medical Group through the Service. We do not control or interfere with the practice of medicine by the Medical Group, each of whom is solely responsible for the medical care and treatment he or she provides to you. Viapromeds makes no representations or warranties about
the suitability, reliability, timeliness or accuracy of the medical care and treatment provided by the Medical Group. By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that Viapromeds is not a healthcare provider and that by using the Service, you are not entering into a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with Viapromeds. By using the Service, you may, however, be entering into a doctor-patient or other health care provider-patient relationship with the Medical Group.
By accepting this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree that, the Medical Group may send you messages, reports, and emails via the Service regarding your diagnosis and/or treatment. You further understand and agree that it is your sole responsibility to monitor and respond to these messages, reports, and emails and that neither Viapromeds nor the Medical Group will be responsible in any way and you will not hold Viapromeds, or Medical Group liable for any loss, injury, or claims of any kind resulting from your failure to read or respond to these messages or for your failure to comply with any treatment recommendations or instructions from the Medical Group.
In some cases, a VIAPROMEDS or affiliated health care provider may use the Services to provide advice or treatment to you. A health care provider consulting with you through the Services may not have the benefit of information that would be obtained by examining you in person and observing your physical condition, in each instance. Therefore, the health care provider may not be aware of facts or information that may affect his or her opinion regarding a potential diagnosis or treatment recommendation. To reduce the risk to you of this limitation, VIAPROMEDS strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with a health care provider. Moreover, a health care provider utilizing VIAPROMEDS may be limited by state law in prescribing certain medications to you without first conducting an in-person physical examination. By deciding to engage the Services, you acknowledge and agree that you are aware of these limitations and agree to assume the risk of these limitations. Furthermore, you agree and accept that: (i) any diagnosis you may receive is limited and, in some cases, provisional; (ii) the health care services are not intended, in all cases, to replace a full medical evaluation or an in-person visit with a health care provider; (iii) a health care provider acting through the Services may not have important information that is usually obtained through a “hands-on” physical examination; and (iv) the absence of a physical examination may affect the health care provider’s ability to diagnose any potential condition, disease or injury.
Except for specific communications received from our VIAPROMEDS doctors or affiliate health care organizations and providers, none of the Content you receive through the Site should be considered medical advice.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO MEDICARE AND MEDICAID BENEFICIARIES
