Service: Second Opinion

  1. Privacy requirements:
    123sonography knows that patient privacy is a priority for all healthcare professionals. Our service, “Second Opinion” is designed in a way that takes patient privacy extremely seriously. Before uploading, you must remove identifying details (for example, faces, names, tattoos, locations) related to patients from any file (picture, text, videos) that is being uploaded. See a list of all personal identifiers below (Appendix 1). Once a file is uploaded, our team performs a review of each file to verify that all identifying information has been properly removed. Because uploaded files do not have identifying details about patients and are not attached to any patient information, such as names or addresses, they do not fall under privacy regulations around the world such as HIPAA’s Privacy Rule in the United States, the EU Directives, privacy legislation in Canada (such as PHIPA in Ontario), and national privacy laws or similar legislation in other jurisdictions around the world.
  2. Minimum requirements for receiving a second opinion:
    In addition to privacy requirements, uploaded cases must contain a minimum amount of background information in order to get a valuable second opinion. User must express their questions clearly and provide profound medical background information about the specific case. All cases are reviewed prior to being added to our database. Cases that don’t meet these criteria will be rejected.
  3. Sharing case:
    When users upload their case, they may grant the right to share the case with other users to 123sonography at any given time in the future.
  4. Disclaimer:
    We answer the questions to your cases in all conscience. Due to the fact that giving a second opinion depends on the information you provide to we are not able to guarantee a predefined quality of the outcome. Therefore, 123sonography is not liable for diagnoses, treatments or any other actions that may be taken based on the service “second opinion”.

Appendix 1: Personal identifiers: identifying details that the user must remove before a file is uploaded:

  • names
  • full face images
  • geographical identifiers
  • date identifiers
  • phone numbers
  • fax numbers
  • electronic mail addresses
  • social security or social insurance numbers, or equivalent
  • medical record numbers
  • health card numbers, health plan beneficiary numbers, or equivalent
  • account numbers
  • certificate/license numbers
  • vehicle identifiers and serial numbers
  • device identifiers and serial numbers
  • URLs
  • IP address numbers
  • biometric identifiers, including finger and voice prints
  • any other unique identifying number, characteristic, or code

Service: Echo2Go Discussion Forum

You may not assign Lifetime subscription plans to any other person.
