Recommended reset of unique alphanumeric password every 30 days
No recording app/device must be activated in the background – patients and their chosen providers will receive a recorded zoom link after the session by their emails. This will ensure data localisation and portability to the geographic location of either party.
Patient health data can be shared only from the Patient’s side – using the zoom chat box. This may take the form of a typed note, image file, PDF or a shareable link (eg. google drive/dropbox folder) from the Patient’s side.
Providers are not to share any such data with any third party during or after a session is concluded.
Providers must discard any health data (PDF, data sharing links, image files) that has been shared to them, by shifting the data set into the recycle bin and immediately erase it within a period of 7 days has elapsed since the last communication with the patient.
Providers may keep a handwritten journal during or after the session, for record keeping or further analysis if they choose to, this document should be written either during the session or immediately afterwards. The journal must be stored securely in the Provider’s own desk space (under lock and key) or in a safe deposit box (you may treat this document as a bank cheque book).
The Patient may request for a copy of any notes that may have been taken by the Provider during the course of a session. The Patient should request a verbal request towards the end of the scheduled video session (prior to 30min duration) that they would like a photo scan of the Provider’s notes.
The Provider can take a photo scan of any handwritten notes and upload via the Zoom chat box if the scheduled time permits, however if not possible, the Patient must book a follow up appointment to receive the previous session notes via the upload image function of the Zoom chat box
This image file must be discarded by the Provider within 7 days from the device memory in entirety (i.e. permanent delete)
This professional journal may be maintained for a maximum duration of 6 Months, after which the provider is requested to discard the document in entirety by complete paper shredding, safely burning it or soaking in water until the ink is dissolved.

What kind of doctors do you have in the telemedicine platform?
Are VIOS Telemedicine Doctors considered employees or Independent Contractors?
How will I know the VIOS Providers are qualified? Do you do Background checks?
What kind of health conditions can I discuss?
Can VIOS arrange a medical tourism visa?
Do I have to send my medical records before the appointment?
That will not be necessary, but we prefer if you could share some basic heath data so that your chosen doctor gets an idea about your issues prior to the meeting.
We prefer if you prepare the scanned copies of all relevant and recent medical reports, scans and your local doctors’ records in your computer prior to your scheduled appointment.
We have set up our processes to allow ample time for your chosen provider to go through the data during your session, so that all pertinent information can be relayed to you in a easy to understand manner.
During your appointment, you may upload the files in the Zoom chat box (in the form of images or a google drive/dropbox link) to your provider. Or you may enable screen sharing and simply display the scanned records without actually sharing any files.
Can my local Doctor be present during the meeting?
Although the patient has willingly selected the booking and is free to utilise the access as they please, the value of the scheduled session may not be appreciated if there is a larger audience interacting at the same time.
Additionally the private conversation between the patient and specialist is fully protected by the terms and conditions of the VIOS Platform. Any alteration in the process, by sharing the appointment to other parties, will nullify the terms and conditions mentioned before.
If the Patient decides to involve other parties in the scheduled session (eg. by inviting their local doctor or another party), this arrangement should be communicated and made apparent to the VIOS Provider as soon as they enter the meeting.
It is within their professional rights to agree and proceed accordingly, or they may choose to end the session as per their choice. Provider and Patient may file an incident/complaint report to [email protected] regarding this matter – bear in mind shared session will not be refunded nor rescheduled in any form.
I have a rash should I show it on camera, during the video session?
An oral description by the patient is a better alternative to discuss the prior diagnosis made, to allow the provider to assess the information provided.
ViOS, Inc and affiliated entities do not condone nor allow for unnecessary exposure and visual examination of patient party by the provider, regardless of initial medical issue.
Should I keep the camera on during the telemedicine session?
- Confirm the identity of either party
- Ensure that a minor is not alone during a session, even if it is for a Pediatric review (an adult caregiver should be present)
- You can assess if a third person who is acting as a translator is able to convey the message properly
- You can demonstrate a bodily function such as joint movement or gait
- You can confirm correct use of device such as nebuliser
- You can view the packaging details of a medication, including its generic name
- The face-to-face interaction adds depth and richness to a conversation
- The Provider is able to assess non-verbal cues in the discussion
- There is a healing effect in seeing an empathic facial expression, of a dedicated Provider
What are their diagnostic protocols? Meaning, when and how do they determine if a patient should go to the ER, Urgent Care or their PCP (as opposed to writing a script themselves or just advising the patient on what course of action to take by themselves).
Are telemedicine providers allowed to practice internationally?
How will I get my prescriptions?
When do they write prescriptions and what specific drugs do they prescribe? Any narcotics?
Can I meet the doctor in person?
Where will you store confidential patient data?
All information provided by the Patient will be directly communicated with their preferred provider only during the scheduled Zoom session (whereby a post-session recorded link will be provided to either party).
Oral history generated as part of standard patient health interviews will be assessed, inquired and analysed by their preferred provider only.
Any other form of patient health data such as previous medical records/reports/prescription labels etc may be communicated via oral transcripts by the patient, displayed from the Patient’s camera or be uploaded into the document upload function in the Zoom app.
The Provider may view the shared data either by direct preview (if possible) or may be downloaded temporarily for better viewing. After the session is completed, the Provider is instructed to discard/erase any digital information communicated by the patient using the Zoom chat function.
If the scanned data is corrupted, of low quality or the Provider is unable to assess the details properly, the Patient is obligated to either cease further data sharing or provide a better quality scan if they choose to (in the same session or at a follow up scheduled appointment).
The Patient party is discouraged from sharing any personal data of any form via email to the Company or Provider in any form, prior to, during or after a session.
Is the doctor taking down any notes?
Will the Telemedicine Provider give me any reports or paperwork?
The Providers are not obliged to create, maintain nor submit any official documents to any party after their scheduled session is completed satisfactorily.
If you, as a patient, would like the Provider to orally summarise or conclude the information that was discussed, you may ask the provider to do so before the session time is complete (within the 30min mark).
As mentioned before, if you would like a scanned copy of any handwritten notes the Provider may have taken during your interaction, you may politely ask them to take a picture of the notes (pertaining to your discussion only) and upload via the Zoom chat box.
If the scheduled time is about to conclude, and the Provider does not have enough time to take a picture of the notes and then forward it to you, you must book a follow up session at a convenient time in order to receive the scanned notes.
Alternatively, the provider may email their second opinion/consult review to ViOS, Inc. via our official email – [email protected], and. we will forward to the requesting patient party in due time.

How long is the telemedicine session?
Can another person join the session that I have booked?
However, as you the informed patient, have selected and purchased the booking at your own discretion, you may decide what is the best way to experience the virtual session – even if you think that means allowing a third party (eg. an adult care-giver from another location) to participate in the private session.
Such an action may alter the doctor-patient relationship, therefore altering the privacy status of the virtual care session.
If you wish to proceed in inviting a third party on your behalf, it is recommeneded to communicate this to the provider as soon as the scheduled event is initiated, so as to clarify your direct decision in doing so.

The Provider is free to choose any supplemental professional coverage that they feel will confer an additional layer of professional security, separate and/or complimentary to existing coverage within our platform.
It is recommended that appropriate professionals with legal expertise be contacted for counsel prior to any decision on the part of the applicant.

The Company provacy policy and best use guidelines do not approve for a business entity to interact on the patient’s behalf, unless a clear communication and documentation of the aftore-mentioned interaction is completed and forwarded to the chosen provider via an clearly expressed intent in the comments section of their Calendly scheduler.
Final decision to proceed with this scheduled interaction is on the choice of the independently contracted provider. If the Provider chooses not to proceed then the interaction shall be cancelled – without any refund.
If the Provider chooses to proceed with the scheduled event, the business entity must ensure that the Zoom session is adequately secured from the Patient’s side, any third party party present and/or visible during the session i.e. primary porivder/translator understands that this is a breach of usual patient privacy – and expressed and documented waivers have been signed accordingly.
The third party business entity must also ensure that the Zoom session recording is only sent to the patient’s (or adult caregivers) personal email address. No recording is permitted to be stored on the entities email address or any other data storage solution.
