In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, ClearPath Family Healthcare will be instituting the following measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your help to keep our community safe!
All sick visits will have an initial consultation via telemedicine. If the healthcare provider determines that a face-to-face visit is required you will be notified at that visit with further instructions on how to reduce disease transmission. We will not be accepting any stand-by visits for sick patients.
We ask that only the patient and one healthy visitor attend all visits.
If you think that you or your child may have been exposed to an active coronavirus case, please CALL the office with further instructions.
We are now offering telemedicine for all established patients. Preoperative exams, general wellness/physical exams and well-child exams/physicals will NOT be available via telemedicine. Medicare annual wellness exams will be available via telemedicine without a physical exam portion.
We strongly recommend that everyone takes precautions by staying home and does not risk unnecessary exposure to the virus. Patients may be discharged if this policy is violated.

TeleMedicine: Only Available in Arizona
Telemedicine may be used for diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and/or patient education, and may include, but is not limited to, one or more of the following:
● Electronic transmission of medical records, photo images, personal health information or other data between a patient and a healthcare provider
● Interactions between a patient and healthcare provider via audio, video and/or data communications
● Use of output data from medical devices, 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 his/her local healthcare site (i.e. home) while the healthcare provider consults and obtains test results at distant/other sites.
● More efficient medical evaluation and management.
● Enabling you to interact with your healthcare provider without the necessity of an in-office appointment
As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks associated with the use of telemedicine. These risks include, but may not be limited to:
● In rare cases, the healthcare provider may determine that the transmitted information is of inadequate quality, thus necessitating a face-to-face visit with the patient, or at least a rescheduled video consult;
● The inability of your healthcare provider to conduct certain tests or assess vital signs in-person may in some cases prevent the healthcare provider from providing a diagnosis or treatment or from identifying the need for emergency medical care or treatment for you
● Your healthcare provider may not able to provide medical treatment for your particular condition and you may be required to seek alternative healthcare or emergency care services
● Delays in medical evaluation and treatment could occur due to deficiencies or failures of the equipment
● In very rare instances, security protocols could fail, causing a breach of privacy of personal medical information
● You understand that the laws that protect privacy and the confidentiality of medical information also apply to telemedicine, and that no information obtained in the use of telemedicine, which identifies you, will be disclosed to researchers or other entities without your written consent.
● You understand that you have the right to withhold or withdraw consent to the use of telemedicine in the course of your care at any time, without affecting your right to future care or treatment.
● You understand that you may anticipate the expected benefits from the use of telemedicine, but that no results can be guaranteed or assured. Telemedicine visits are only available in the State of Arizona and only available for patients who reside in the State of Arizona.
● You understand that the healthcare provider may determine that your condition is not suitable for diagnosis and/or treatment using the telemedicine platform, and that you may need to seek medical care and treatment from a specialist and/or a face-to-face appointment at ClearPath Family Healthcare. Furthermore, you understand that if additional visits via telemedicine or face-to-face visits at ClearPath Family Healthcare
7725 North 43rd Ave Suite 720 Phoenix, AZ 85051 www.CPFHC.com
● You may be responsible for any additional fees, copays and/or coinsurance that may apply to those visits.
● You understand that your healthcare information may be shared with other individuals for scheduling and billing purposes. Others may also be present during the consultation other than the healthcare provider in order to operate the telemedicine equipment. The above mentioned people will all maintain confidentiality of the information obtained. You further understand that you will be informed of their presence in the consultation and thus will have the right to request the following: (1) omit specific details of my medical history/physical examination that are personally sensitive to me; (2) ask non-medical personnel to leave the telemedicine examination room; and/or (3) terminate the consultation at any time.
● You understand that some photographic or other images you share with the healthcare provider may include portions of your breast or genitalia, and you agree to the receipt of such images by your healthcare provider solely for the purposes of providing medical care and treatment via telemedicine.
● You have read this document carefully, and understand the risks and benefits of the telemedicine consultation and have had your questions regarding the procedure explained and you hereby give your informed consent to participate in a telemedicine visit under the terms described herein.
