Purpose of the Services
If you are a patient, our software is provided to you free of charge on behalf of your healthcare provider (“Provider”). If you are a Provider, our software is provided to you subject to these Terms and any other agreements entered into between You and Eko.
For patients and Providers, the software is provided in order to:
- Allow patients and Providers to utilize the Services and Devices,
- Automatically transmit a patient’s lung sounds, heart sounds, ECG data, and data analysis to the patient’s Provider, and
- Allow patients and providers to access the transmitted data and Eko’s wireless, mobile, and web-based management systems and technologies.
NOTE: Eko is not a healthcare provider nor do we provide any healthcare services. We are not a health insurance company and we are not licensed to sell health insurance.
We Do NOT Provide Medical Advice
Our Services provide an online option for Providers and patients to communicate about medical conditions that are not serious or life threatening and do not present an emergency. It is NOT intended for use in connection with active patient monitoring to allow immediate clinical action or continuous monitoring by a health care provider or the patient.
THE SERVICES CANNOT AND ARE NOT DESIGNED, INTENDED OR APPROPRIATE TO REPLACE THE PROVIDER-PATIENT RELATIONSHIP OR TO ADDRESS SERIOUS, EMERGENCY, OR LIFE-THREATENING MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND SHOULD NOT BE USED IN THOSE CIRCUMSTANCES. PATIENTS SHOULD ALWAYS TALK TO THEIR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER(S) FOR DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT, INCLUDING INFORMATION REGARDING WHICH DRUGS, THERAPY, OR OTHER TREATMENT MAY BE APPROPRIATE FOR THEM.
Eko is not liable in any way, to patients or to Providers, for any malpractice or substandard treatment a Provider provides. You are using the Services at your own risk.
Patients: If at any time you are concerned about your care or the treatment, or you believe or someone else advises you that you have a serious or life-threatening condition, call 9-1-1 immediately in areas where that service is available, or go to the nearest open clinic or emergency room.
Your Provider will base their medical advice on the personal health data you provide through the Services and the data transmitted from your Devices. If you do not provide complete and accurate personal health data, the medical advice you receive may not be correct. Any content provided or accessed through the Services, including without limitation information provided by Eko’s staff in response to questions you may submit through the Services, is for informational purposes only, and is not intended to cover all possible uses, directions, precautions, drug interactions, or adverse effects. Please consult your doctor or other qualiﬁed health care provider if you have any questions about a medical condition, or before taking any drug, changing your diet, or commencing or discontinuing any course of treatment. Never disregard, avoid, or delay in obtaining medical advice from a doctor or other qualified healthcare provider because of something posted on our Services.
EKO DOES NOT ENDORSE OR RECOMMEND ANY PROVIDER, AND WE DO NOT CONFIRM THE CREDENTIALS OF ANY PROVIDERS. WE DO NOT CONTROL THE MEDICAL ADVICE THE PROVIDER GIVES, AND WE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO OR USE ANY OF THAT ADVICE. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO SEPARATELY CONFIRM THAT A HEALTHCARE PROVIDER IS PROPERLY LICENSED.
