Terms of Service
Last Modified: 12/05/17
IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICES OR DIAL 9-1-1 ON YOUR TELEPHONE. ALLEVIA DOES NOT PROVIDE EMERGENCY SERVICES.
Allevia is offered and available to users who are 18 years of age or older, and reside in the United States or any of its territories or possessions. By using Allevia, you represent and warrant that you are of legal age to form a binding contract with the Company and meet all of the foregoing eligibility requirements. If you do not meet all of these requirements, you must not access or use Allevia.
Allevia. Allevia is a software application that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to streamline the clinical documentation process.
Network. Your Network is made up of the Primary User and any Providers whom the Primary User has invited to participate in the Primary User’s Network. The Primary User and the Providers in that Primary User’s Network are the “Network Members.”
Health Profile. A Health Profile is a document that analyzes and summarizes the information that the Primary User communicates to Allevia. Allevia will take that information and assemble it into a summary for the Primary User to review and (if necessary) correct. Allevia will then transform that into a clinical summary for Providers to use. That clinical summary is the Health Profile.
Primary User. You are the Primary User – the individual who will interact with Allevia to create a Health Profile for transmission to a Provider.
Primary User Information. All information and documents that are communicated or uploaded to Allevia by Network Members, and all information and documents that Allevia develops as a result, comprise the Primary User Information. Primary User Information also includes, without limitation, the Primary User’s account information and Health Profiles.
Provider. A Provider is any healthcare provider, healthcare practice, or hospital that the Primary User authorizes to receive his/her Health Profile.
The Company and Allevia Are Not Health Care Providers
Allevia facilitates the clinical documentation process by receiving information from a Primary User, transforming it into an easy-to-use clinical document format, and providing it to the authorized Provider(s). The Company is not a health care provider, and we will not provide you with health care advice. Any health care advice that a Provider communicates to you is solely the responsibility of that Provider. You agree that you shall not rely on the Company, and that the Company shall have no responsibility or liability, for the truth, accuracy, or efficacy of any diagnosis, treatment plan, prescription, treatment (as well as any decision not to conduct treatment), or any other form of medical or health care that is developed, discussed, or otherwise communicated or conducted by means of or in connection with Allevia.
Do Not Use Allevia To Obtain Emergency Services or Urgent Care
Allevia does not provide or facilitate emergency services or urgent care. If you are experiencing a medical emergency or other urgent health issue, do NOT attempt to obtain emergency or urgent medical care through Allevia. Please call 9-1-1 on your telephone, or contact your local emergency or urgent care service providers directly by phone.
Company’s License to You
The main purpose of Allevia is to help create preliminary clinical documentation about a Primary User for use by Providers. To do so, Allevia will ask the Primary User questions to elicit personal information, including health information, and may ask the Primary User to upload health-related documents. Such information may be protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) of 1996, as amended). To permit Allevia to do so, you must review, agree to, and electronically sign the Authorization to Use and Disclose PHI, which you may view by clicking here[ER3] , before you may use Allevia.
Each Provider will have access to all documents and information that you provide Allevia. Except for certain Company administrators who are bound to confidentiality agreements, no one outside your Network will have access to these documents and information.
The information and documents that you communicate to Allevia and your Health Profile – collectively, the “Primary User Information” – shall be considered confidential and potentially a part of your digital health record. We will treat all Primary User Information, including without limitation communications that contain Protected Health Information (as that term is defined by HIPAA), as highly confidential and subject to protections under HIPAA. All Primary User Information shall be encrypted. In particular, only identity-verified Providers may view a Primary User’s Health Profiles. The Company shall not view the content of any Primary User Information except for account information.
You agree to be bound by any affirmance, assent, or agreement that you transmit to Company using Allevia, including but not limited to any consent you give to receive communications from Company solely through electronic transmission. You agree that, when in the future you click on an “I agree,” “I consent,” or other similarly worded “button” or entry field in Allevia, your agreement or consent will be legally binding and enforceable and the legal equivalent of your handwritten signature.
Your carrier’s data rates may apply to your use of Allevia.
