QT Medical, Inc. offers a digital, wireless electrocardiogram (“ECG”) system that syncs with mobile devices (both iOS and Android) via Bluetooth technology. QT Medical, Inc. contracts with EKG360, P.C. to offer full 12-lead ECG remote monitoring and interpretation (the “Service”). The portable ECG device receives signals from the one-time use electrode strip applied to the body and then transits that data to a connected mobile device where the ECG reading is displayed. The ECG reading can be shared by the patient with third parties, including the treating clinician. The ECG readings are also stored on QT Medical’s secure cloud server for later access and analysis. Before you give your consent to request the Service, please be aware of how receiving remote ECG monitoring through the QT Medical mobile application (the “App”) differs from an in-person conventional ECG procedure. If you have any questions, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the “Support” button in the App.

Also, the Service does not send alerts, either to you or to any third parties. You understand that by using the Service, you will not have an in-person physical exam that might identify a potentially serious medical condition. DO NOT use the Service in a medical emergency, in a medical emergency you should dial 911 or visit an emergency room.
You agree that it is your choice to or not to use the Service. You can stop receiving the Service at any time.
You understand that you will need to pay for the Service received through the App yourself and that any insurance you have may not pay for it. You understand that by using the Service, you are freely electing to pay out of pocket and that you may be foregoing discounts or insurance coverage that would otherwise be available to you if you sought care in-person. You understand that it is your responsibility to arrange and pay for any follow-up care.
You understand that if you are using the App, you are responsible for having the latest version of the App on your mobile telephone or device and for having sufficient internet access or wireless connection to use the App. You understand that you are responsible for accepting and implementing any software patches or updates pushed out through the App.

If you’d like to receive your ECG interpretation earlier, please contact your physician during office hours. You may also request a faster interpretation through EKG360, P.C. via the Website or App. If you select EKG360, P.C. for your interpretation, you will be provided with the name, credentials, and qualifications of the licensed clinician providing the ECG interpretation.
