Use by Physicians Licensed in the United States
You should note that our forums and discussion boards are open to other Users and should not be considered private. You may not give out information about an organization, a patient or another person or submit other content if you do not have the express authority or permission to share that information publicly. If you submit information regarding the treatment of patients, you must only share information that is fully de-identified in accordance with HIPAA and all other applicable federal and state laws and regulations. You agree that you will not submit, upload or otherwise post information on the Platform that is deemed to be “protected health information” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Public Law 104-191, and its related regulations and amendments (collectively, “HIPAA”)
TeaMDup is neither a “covered entity” nor a “business associate” under HIPAA. Although it is highly likely that you are a “covered entity” under HIPAA, it is important to note that HIPAA does not necessarily apply to an entity or person simply because there is health information involved, and we believe that HIPAA does not apply to your transactions or communications with TeaMDup.
In addition, any medical or health information that you provide that is subject to specific protections under applicable state laws (“Protected Information”), will be used and disclosed only in accordance with such applicable laws. Protected Information does not include information that has been de-identified in accordance with applicable laws.
