Since Rev(IV)al Hydration provides primarily mobile rehydration therapy services, Rev(IV)al Hydration may use “telemedicine” to facilitate electronic communications to enable health care providers at different locations to share individual patient medical information for the purpose of improving patient care. Providers may include primary care practitioners, nurse practitioners, specialists, and/or subspecialists. The information may be used for diagnosis, therapy, follow‐up, and/or education, and may include any of the following:
• Patient medical records
• Medical images
• Live two‐way audio and video
• Output data from medical devices and sound and video files
Electronic systems used will incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the confidentiality of patient identification and imaging data and will include measures to safeguard the data and to ensure its integrity against intentional or unintentional corruption.
• Improved access to medical care by enabling a patient to remain in their office, home, or any other remote location while a physician obtains test results as necessary and consults from healthcare practitioners at distant/other sites.
• More efficient medical evaluation and management.
• Obtaining the expertise of a remote specialist.
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of electronic communications to facilitate the provision of medical services via telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:
• In rare cases, information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical decision making by the physician and consultant(s);
• Delays in medical evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment;
. May experience discomfort, bruising, and pain in the injection site.
. May cause inflammation of the vein used for injection, phlebitis.
• In very rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information;
.Severe allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, cardiac arrest, and death.
• In rare cases, a lack of access to complete medical records may result in adverse drug interactions allergic reaction or other judgment errors;
