Email Risks And Your Responsibility
At the discretion of the BMC, its staff, physicians and agents (BMC) and upon your agreement to the terms outlined within this consent form, you may use email to communicate with BMC. These emails may contain your personal health information. If you decide to use email to communicate with BMC, you should be aware of the following risks and/or your responsibilities:
As the Internet is not secure or private, unauthorized people may be able to intercept, read and possibly modify email you send or are sent by BMC.
You must protect your email account, password and computer against access by unauthorized people.
Since email can be used to spread viruses, some which cause email messages to be sent to people who you do not intend to send email messages to, you should install and maintain virus protection software on your PC.
Since emails can be copied, printed and forwarded by people to whom you send emails, you should be careful regarding whom you send emails.
As your employer may claim ownership of, or the right to access, the email account issued to you by your email, you should avoid using an employer issued email account to communicate with BMC.
If you do provide an employer-issued email account to communicate with BMC, you understand and agree that your employer may have the right to access to all email sent by BMC to the account, and you provide permission to BMC to send email, including billing statement availability emails, to the account, unless and until you change the email address for BMC communication in MyBMC.
Conditions For The Use Of Email
By consenting to the use of email with BMC, you agree that:
BMC may forward emails as appropriate for diagnosis, treatment, reimbursement, billing, and other related reasons. As such, BMC staff members, other than the recipient, may have access to emails that you send. Such access will only be to such persons who have a right to access your email to provide services to you. Otherwise, BMC will not, otherwise, forward emails to independent third parties without your prior written consent, except as authorized or required by law.
Although BMC will try to read and respond promptly to your emails, BMC staff may not read your email immediately. Therefore, you should not use email to communicate with BMC if there is an emergency or where you require an answer in a short period of time.
If your email requires or asks for a response, and you have not received a response within a reasonable time period, it is your responsibility to follow up directly with BMC.
You should carefully consider the risk of using email for the communication of sensitive medical information, such as, but not limited to, information regarding sexually transmitted diseases, AIDS/HIV, mental health, developmental disability, or substance abuse.
You should carefully word your email messages so the information provided clearly, yet briefly, describes the information you intend to convey. You should avoid writing long “chatty” emails.
You are responsible for correcting any unclear or incorrect information.
BMC reserves the right to save your email and include your email or information contained within your email in your medical record.
It is the patient’s responsibility to follow up and/or schedule an appointment if warranted or recommended by BMC.
E-mails may not be the only form of communication that BMC will use to communicate with you. Additionally, BMC may decide that it is not in your best interest to continue to communicate with you by email. In such case, BMC will notify that it no longer intends to communicate with you by email.
If you provide an email address to BMC for communication, BMC may use that email address to notify you when a new billing statement is available.
You shall immediately inform those individuals with whom you communicate with at BMC of changes in your email address.
You shall send emails only to such BMC email addresses as instructed.
You shall put your name and such other information as is necessary for BMC to identify you in the body of the email.
You shall include the category of the communications in the email’s subject line, for handling purposes (e.g. prescription, appointment, medical advice, billing question, etc.)
Prior to sending the email, you shall review the email to make sure it is clear and that all relevant or requested information is provided.
You consent to communicate by email by sending an email to all of the email addresses (mailboxes) that you had previously communicated to.
You can unsubscribe from BMC emails at any time.
