7. SPECIAL CONSENT TO TELEHEALTH SERVICES
Telehealth involves the delivery and facilitation of health and health-related services, including medical care, via telecommunications and digital communication technologies, including but not limited to through websites, audio, video, and asynchronous data communications. The types of transmissions and communications that may occur via Open Labs’ Telehealth platforms include:
· Administrative services such as information intake, scheduling, patient education, payment, and other operational services.
· “Asynchronous” communications where a patient’s recorded health history (including but not limited to medical history records, medical intake forms, images, output data from medical devices, diagnostic and/or lab testing results) is transmitted via electronic mechanism to a Provider who uses the information to evaluate the case or render a service outside of real-time or live interaction.
· “Synchronous” communications where a patient and a Provider communicate in “real-time” via live video-conferencing, which is a two-way audiovisual link between a patient and a Provider.
· A combination of “asynchronous” and “synchronous” communications between patient and Provider.
The 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.
8. SPECIAL NOTICE TO MEDICARE AND MEDICAID BENEFICIARIES
Federal and state health care programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid, do not pay for all health care costs, even for some health care services and products that you or your health care provider have good reason to think you need. If you are a beneficiary of a federal or state health care program, and such program does not pay for certain services or products rendered to you, you may have to pay for these services and products. As we understand it, neither federal nor state health care programs currently pay for any of the medical services or products made available through the Services performed by the affiliated health care organizations or providers, at least not in the way such services or products are provided (i.e., using telemedicine and bundled treatment offerings). By agreeing to use the Services, you acknowledge and agree that: (1) you are explicitly choosing to obtain products and services on a cash basis outside of any federal or state healthcare program and you have sole financial responsibility for all services or products provided to you by or through the Service; (2) you will pay directly for any medical services and products provided to you, and (3) neither you, Open Labs nor any Open Labs affiliated health care organization or Providers will bill any federal or state health care program for such medical services or products.
9. PHARMACY AND/OR MEDICATION FULFILLMENT SERVICES
If you receive a prescription as a result of the Services, you may select our physician network to ship your prescription. You give us consent to send and disclose to the physician network all information provided by you, health care records, and other applicable health care information and personal information (such as your name, location and demographic information) so that you may receive pharmacy and/or medication fulfillment services.
10. PACKAGING AND FULFILLMENT RESTRICTIONS
If you choose to fulfill any prescriptions provided by health care providers through the Services, you acknowledge that your medication, if approved, will not be shipped in child-resistant packaging nor will it be dispensed in child-resistant containers and that you must keep it out of the reach of children.
12. YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH US
Open Labs does not itself provide any medical services, including via the Sites and Services. Rather, Open Labs provides a technology platform for you to access a licensed health care provider (a “Provider”) and obtain access to additional information, which you may or may not choose to utilize in planning your health care. The health care resources made available through our Services are not a substitute for direct in-person health care services in all cases. The decision to focus on diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or both, rests with you and the Provider. You understand that by coordinating and in certain cases consulting with a Provider or affiliate health care provider through the Services, you are not entering into a provider-patient relationship with Open Labs.
13. CONSULTATIVE SERVICES
In some cases, a Provider may use the Services to provide advice or treatment to you. A 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 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, Open Labs strongly encourages you to provide all relevant information and discuss any and all diagnosis and treatment options with the Providers.
Moreover, a Provider utilizing Open Labs 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) Providers 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 Provider’s ability to diagnose any potential condition, disease, or injury.
For more information regarding the health care services offered by Providers utilizing the Services, please visit https://www.openlaboratories.co.

c. Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
It is our hope that most customer concerns are resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by emailing customer support at email@example.com. If such efforts prove unsuccessful, a party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice should be sent to Open Labs at 108 Nantucket Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15238 (“Notice Address”). The Notice must (i) include your name, residence address, username (if applicable) and email address associated with your User account (if applicable), (ii) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (iii) set forth the specific relief sought. If the Company and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received by Company, you or the Company may commence an arbitration proceeding as set forth more fully herein. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by the Company or you (if any) shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or the Company is entitled. Failure to follow the procedures set forth in this paragraphs shall constitute grounds for dismissal of any arbitration proceeding.
d. Arbitration Procedures
The arbitration hearing shall take place in the District of Pennsylvania, before a single arbitrator. Judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
e. Costs of Arbitration
Payment of all filing, administration, and arbitrator fees (collectively, the “Arbitration Fees”) will be governed by the AAA Rules, unless otherwise provided in this Arbitration Agreement. If the value of relief sought is more than $75,000 and you are able to demonstrate to the arbitrator that you are economically unable to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees or if the arbitrator otherwise determines for any reason that you should not be required to pay your portion of the Arbitration Fees, the Company will pay your portion of such fees. In addition, if you demonstrate to the arbitrator that the costs of arbitration will be prohibitive as compared to the costs of litigation, the Company will pay as much of the Arbitration Fees as the arbitrator deems necessary to prevent the arbitration from being cost-prohibitive. Any payment of attorneys’ fees will be governed by the AAA Rules.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
