    AUTHORIZATION FOR MEDICAL AND SURGICAL TREATMENT:

    • YRMC works with a variety of physicians, medical providers and/or groups. Although some of these providers are YRMC employees most are independent contractors and not employees or agents of the YRMC. YRMC is not liable for the acts or omissions of the independent physicians or contracted providers.
    • I consent to any examinations, procedures, treatments and services under the general or special instructions of my physician(s). I authorize YRMC, its employees, agents, students and physicians caring for me to treat my condition(s) to include telemedicine services and/or consultations.
    • I have been informed of the treatment and/or procedures considered necessary for my condition(s). No guarantees have been made to me regarding the results of my examination or treatment.
    • Photographs and/or videotapes may be taken and used as part of my medical record.

    HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONERS: Health care practitioners includes Medical Doctors (MD), Osteopathic Doctors (DO), Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, Physician Assistants (PA), Nurse Practitioners (NP), Radiologists, Pathologists, Cardiologists, Emergency Physicians, Imaging Services, Dialysis Services and any other treating providers. Although some health care practitioners are employed by YRMC, most are neither employees nor agents of YRMC and are considered independent contractors. I understand that YRMC is not liable for the ordering or providing of treatment by those health care practitioners who are not YRMC employees.

    RELEASE OF INFORMATION: I authorize YRMC under state and Federal law to release all or any part of my record (including alcohol or drug abuse, HIV-related or communicable disease information) to persons or organizations for such purposes as treatment, billing and collection, insurance and quality review, medical audits, organ donation and treatment by and payment of other providers.

    I understand that YRMC may retrieve medical record history, prescription history and/or other medical information from other health care providers for my care and treatment.

    FINANCIAL AGREEMENT: I understand that I am responsible for my bill and if my insurance company has not paid within 45 days of my visit that this account will be considered past due and I will be responsible for payment. At YRMC’s option, a delinquent account may be charged interest at the rate of 18% per annum from date of my visit until paid in full. Physicians may bill separately from YRMC. If those physicians do not participate in the same insurance plans as YRMC, this could affect the reimbursement made by the insurance plan to the physicians. To the extent not expressly prohibited by law, I agree to pay physicians’ bills that are not paid in full by the health insurance carrier or other third party payer. I also agree to pay any applicable health insurance deductibles and copayments.

    ASSIGNMENT: I understand that I am responsible for any charges not covered. If I am eligible for Medicare benefits, I will assign the benefits payable for physician services to physician or organization furnishing the services and authorize those entities to bill and collect from Medicare directly. If I am entitled to benefits arising out of any insurance policy insuring me or any other party liable to me, I will assign such benefits to YRMC or any person or entity providing services to me to pay my bill.

    AUTO-DIALING: I understands that I may be contacted using prerecorded/artificial voice messages and/or use of an automatic telephone dialing system, via e-mail, via text messages or and other forms of electronic communication. Additionally, I understand that I may be contacted by telephone, including cellular phone numbers associated with my account.

    • I have read the foregoing and and received a copy.
    • I fully understand the content and significance of this document.

    We may also log and track IP addresses for systems administration purposes and for reporting usage trends. Your IP address is usually associated with the physical place from which you enter the Internet, the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the browser software you use and your operating system, and may also depend on the date and time you access the Platform.  By collecting your IP address, we may record the page that linked you to this Platform, the web pages you visit, the ads you see or click on, and other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform and settings you are using, and any search terms you enter on this Platform. IP addresses are not used to track an individual user’s session. This information only helps us determine how often different areas of our Website and Platform are visited.

    We may combine non-identifiable information collected automatically (such as through IP addresses, cookies or click-stream monitoring) with any previously submitted personal information that we may have received from you.

    Geographic Location

    We may collect your geographic location based on your IP address and other location-based data. However, we do not collect any device identifications.

    Security

    While no web site can guarantee security, we maintain physical, administrative, electronic, technical and procedural safeguards to help protect your personal information collected via the Platform as required by applicable law. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, we use industry standards, such as Secure Socket Layers ("SSL") technology, to help safeguard against such occurrences. In certain areas, the information passed between your browser and our system is encrypted with SSL technology to create a protected connection between you and our website to ensure confidentiality.

    Our data center is both physically and electronically secured. Our servers are protected behind the Internet by using firewall and encryption technology. All data is stored and transferred in encrypted formats that exceed standards defined by HIPAA. No data is transferred to users that do not have specific data access keys.

    We limit access to personally identifiable information about you to our employees and third-party agents, who we reasonably believe need to have access to your information to provide you with the information or services you request via the Platform.

    In the event that a breach in our security systems occurs and there is a possibility that an unauthorized person acquires your personal information, we will notify you of such a breach as may be required by applicable law.

    In order to help maintain security, you should never share your user ID or password and should always sign out when you are finished using the Platform.

    Access

    We will maintain your information and allow you to request updates at any time by logging into your Platform account to access your information. We will also take steps to make sure that any updates that you provide are processed in a timely and complete manner.

    Third Party Websites

    If you use the Platform to link to another web site, which is not controlled or maintained by YRMC, you may decide to disclose personal information at that web site. For example, you might provide your contact information to obtain an information packet from an organization. Please be aware that in contacting that site, or in providing information on that site, that third party may obtain personal information about you. This Privacy Policy does not apply when you leave the Platform and go to a third party web site from the Platform. We structure the Service so that no personal or health information goes in the search string or URL when you move from the Platform to a linked web site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Service and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information.

    What if I am accessing this Platform from outside of the United States?

    If you are visiting our Platform from outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored or processed in the United States, where our servers are located and our central database is operated. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, but please be assured that we take steps to protect your privacy. By using the Platform, you understand that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this privacy policy.
