Specific Terms and Conditions of the Video-Consultation and Teleconsultation Service
The Video-consultation and Teleconsultation services aim to increase the accessibility to an adequate medical opinion, as an alternative and complementary service, not intended to replace the normal hospital or family health services.
The information and advice provided by our health care professionals should be used to obtain the diagnosis possible from a distance, to increase the Patient's knowledge of their medical situation and what are the best options with which to continue their routine health care. Knower™ Care Center recommends that the Patient discuss the information received with the attending physician especially when the advice is significantly different from the care that has been prescribed by the attending physician.
The information and advice given by the health professionals providing the service is based on the information the patient gives them. It is therefore the responsibility of the patient to ensure that this information is correct and complete. The patient cannot hold any party involved in the care process responsible if the information they have provided, intentionally or unintentionally, is incorrect and has influenced the medical decision.
It is the patient's right and obligation, in the event of any doubts arising during treatment, to ask the healthcare professional for a full explanation of the situation.
Professionals or Knower™ Care Center are prohibited from selling any type of medical or insurance products. Advice given by professionals during a service is based on their professional experience and good clinical practice.
The doctors providing the service may, in their high clinical discretion, prescribe medication. Knower™ Care Center may subcontract the provision of these services to third parties.
The EAS recommends the Patient to share with their treating physician any medication changes suggested by the providing physician.
It is the User's strict responsibility to comply with the instructions, dosages, taking of the prescribed medication as well as to warn of possible side effects experienced.
The service providing doctors may, at their high clinical discretion, prescribe Complementary Diagnostic and Therapeutic Means.
Under express authorisation from the Patient, the information collected may be made available to their treating doctor.
