Services Provided – No Medical Care or Advice by OrthoSensor
As an important note, there is no single provider of medical care called “OrthoSensor.” Rather, OrthoSensor offers an online communication platform for Patients to provide rehabilitation and physical motion measurements to Providers via the App.
OrthoSensor does not provide medical advice or care. OrthoSensor contracts with independent, physician-owned medical groups with a network of United States based Providers who provide clinical telehealth services. OrthoSensor provides administrative and business support services to the medical group Providers. The Providers deliver clinical services to their Patients through the App. Providers access patient information through our HIPAA compliant companion website, OrthoLogIQ. Providers are not contracted or employed by OrthoSensor. The Providers, and not OrthoSensor, are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you. OrthoSensor does not provide any legal advice or representations in any way regarding any legal issues associated with advice, information, goods, or services offered by a Provider, including but not limited to any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any state or federal laws and regulations.
The Providers are independent of OrthoSensor and are merely using the App as a way to communicate with you. Any information or advice received from a Provider comes from them alone, and not from OrthoSensor. Your interactions with the Providers via the App are not intended to take the place of your relationship with your regular health care practitioners or primary care physician. Neither OrthoSensor, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the App or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from a Provider via the App or Service, nor any information obtained on the App. OrthoSensor does not recommend or endorse any specific Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Providers or information delivered by the Providers via the App or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
OrthoSensor does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Providers who deliver services via the App or Service. You are ultimately responsible for choosing your particular Provider.
The content of the App and the Services, including without limitation, text, copy, audio, video, photographs, illustrations, graphics, and other visuals, is for informational purposes only and does not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by OrthoSensor. You should always seek the advice of your qualified health care professionals with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your individual needs and any medical conditions. All information provided by OrthoSensor, or in connection with any communications supported by OrthoSensor, is intended to be for general information purposes only, and is in no way intended to create a provider-patient relationship as defined by state or federal law. While OrthoSensor facilitates communications with Providers, OrthoSensor does not provide medical services, and the doctor-patient relationship is between you and your Provider.
Please contact your Provider directly for any questions regarding your care or medical treatment.
Not for Emergencies
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
OrthoSensor’s App and Services are not for medical emergencies or urgent situations. You should not disregard or delay to seek medical advice based on anything that appears or does not appear on the App. If you believe you have an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
You should seek emergency help or follow up care when recommended by a Provider or when otherwise needed. You should continue to consult with your primary provider and other healthcare professionals as recommended. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider concerning questions you have regarding a medical condition and before stopping, starting, or modifying any treatment or modification.
Risks of Telehealth Services
Telehealth involves the delivery of healthcare services using electronic communications, information technology or other means between a healthcare provider and a patient who are not in the same physical location. While the provision of health care services using telehealth may offer certain potential benefits, there are also potential risks associated with the use of telehealth. The telehealth services are not a substitute for in-person health care in all cases. In order to use the Service, you will be required to review and agree to an informed consent regarding the use of telehealth (the “Patient Consent”) that will be provided to you by your Provider prior to your registration on the App. You agree that OrthoSensor is a third-party beneficiary of the Patient Consent and has the right to enforce it against you.
Access to the Services
You should only access our Services if you are one of the following categories of user:
a Patient, who has been referred by a charitable organisation or your surgeon, doctor or other healthcare professional to download and use the App as part of your treatment or invited to use the App as part of your involvement in a clinical study or research project; or
a Provider who recommends that App to Patients in your capacity as a person responsible (whether as a surgeon, doctor or other healthcare professional) for the medical care and treatment of Patients, and with the permission from those Patients to monitor such activity and other medical data as they may submit to the App in order to inform their care pre-and-post treatment, or as a person administering a clinical study or research project involving consenting App users for medical and device research purposes.
If you are a Patient, you should only use this App if:
