DISPATCH DELIVERY OF DRUGS (DDD)

In cities where this service is available, DDD is a value added service that will deliver drugs to patients and customers. The payment for both drugs and their deliveries are made through the e-wallet. Cash payments for drugs or deliveries are both forbidden. Dispatch riders in operational cities are often locals who have been trained to conduct self courteously and to relate with others in a most visit manner. Customers are to also relate with them appropriately. Courtesy, respect and politeness in relating with dispatch riders is expected of all users. All forms of abuse – verbal and physical, disrespect and discourtesy is prohibited in relating with dispatch riders.
Drugs procured for dispatch and delivery are paid before lifting. The buyer may confirm the validity check at delivery and if the standards do not meet expectations, the buyer may return the drug and request electronic refund from the pharmacy. This refund is done immediately and not more than 6 hours after the first request except network infrastructure make electronic refunds not feasible at the time.
Users of dispatched drugs must verify the authenticity of the drug preparations in the presence of the dispatch rider before his departure so that it will be returned to him immediately and transactions reversed if supply was not acceptable. This verification process should not last more than 15 minutes. Unnecessary delay of the rider may attract a bill of 1USD per extra minute spent. By using DDD services, you agree to comply with these standards.

PLATFORM COMMUNICATIONS

Free multimedia communications (IM chat, Audio, Video calls) are available on the platform between and among patients and HSPs. The welfare and wellbeing of the patient is the purpose of this service. The communication is not for social reasons. Users are prohibited from using the platform for mere social communication purposes that do not directly impact on the patient or improvement of health care delivery. By registration on the platform, all users agree to use the instant messaging chat, audio and video calls for only health care delivery purposes. They also agree to the likely consequences of violating this requirement which may include account suspension.

ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS (EHR)

Applinic automatically creates personal electronic health records for patients as they are managed on the platform. This record comprises doctor’s reports, prescriptions, diagnostic results and treatment plans for every condition and management session. Patients’ health records are accessible by default by only the patients and the doctors managing them. This record is encryptedly stored in the cloud but decrypted for the authorized users including third parties the patient may grant access to. Third party access requires specific request which generates an OTP sent to patient’s phones by SMS which the patient needs to disclose to the third party before access to record can be granted.
Patients and other HSP account holders must also ensure they don’t engage in practices that compromise the integrity and security of their accounts such as sharing user names, passwords or OTPs with third parties. Handing of phones to friends and relations without close observation may also jeopardize security of confidential health information.
Despite these security measures, Applinic acknowledges that technology, cryptography and hacking are constantly evolving and therefore does not give impeccable guarantee of safety of patients records in the cloud. Applinic will constantly upgrade and stiffen its security apparatus and will always employ and deploy the most contemporary and cutting edge, up-to-date and available web security technologies, firewalls and SSL, including anti-hacking, anti-malware tools, codes, encryptions and server infrastructures to secure the health information of our customers and clients.
Despite all these measures, due to the fact that breaches may still result from the users’ indiscretion, Applinic does not provide a fool-proof warranty of the security of health information of patients in the cloud and under no circumstance do we accept responsibility for the safety of patients’ cloud stores of Electronic Health Records. By continuing to use Applinic, patients and HSPs accept responsibility for any and all breaches that may occur in their EHRs and practice records archived in our servers.

PAYMENTS

All payments for health services and products on Applinic are to be made through the e-wallet. Users who pay for services on the platform hereby agree to credit their wallets using electronic bank cards, USSD and electronic debits from bank accounts or direct bank deposits to Applinic bank accounts. Direct cash payments to health service providers are prohibited and engagement in outlawed financial practices constitutes a violation of the terms and conditions of the application and could lead to penalties including account deactivations.

CASH OUT

Health Service Providers cash out income earned from provision of services and sales of products. Patients and other service consumers don’t cash out except they are also service providers. Most cash out requests will be completed within 24-48 hours except there is a verification or validation issue which needs to be confirmed before approval in the interest of the security of users finances.
The Cash Out functionality is a third party payment gateway which traverses and engages banks servers and other gateways. Consequently there may be occasional delays in crediting accounts when users intend to cash out but this will never be in excess of 72 hours except when there is a serious technical challenge and therefore will be an exception rather than the rule. All users of Applinic agree to this condition when they sign up to use the application.

The PWR is a dynamic pool of patients with real complaints awaiting response from doctors for a possible acceptance of management. When doctors accept to manage patients in the PWR, they agree to abide by the policies governing the PWR. These include strict observance of patients’ privacies as explained in the section on multimedia communications; no double consultation fee in event of a need for physical consultation after patient has paid for an initial online consultation; and most importantly not accepting cases you don’t specialize in. It is a waste of time and resources for the patient when a doctor accepts to manage a patientknowingly of his case but thereafter discovers the complicated nature and then decides at the last minute to refer him to the appropriate specialist. To find specialists in the house, please use the “Searches” button to select Find Doctor or Find Skills and Procedures depending on how you want to discover the specialists. The patient will not need to pay consultation fee for this initial referral service since the managing consultant will still require the fee of the patient, nevertheless the referring doctor is entitled to a Loyalty Reward which will come at the end of the treatment if it was vertical referral. Please see the section on Referrals for more information.

E- Case Notes
By registering on Applinic, every patient automatically gets an e- case note. This case note is made up of sessions. A session is a collection of doctor/patient interactions (chat, audio, video, consultations, prescriptions, diagnostic requests and all documentations) kept during the management of a particular disease or set of complaints. Each doctor can access his sessions with a patient but cannot access that of another doctor with the same patient except the patient grants him access through an OTP (One Time Password). Doctors can access E-case notes from all devices including mobile phones and tablets so that sessions can be reviewed on the go. The confidentiality and privacy policy of patients records are vital to the use of e-case notes.
By using Applinic to manage patients, doctors are obligated to maintain this privacy and confidentiality by observing all principles described earlier in the section on Patients Confidentiality to ensure that third parties do not see, view or access the contents of patients’ e-case notes. All relevant and necessary efforts for preserving and conserving this privacy must be put in place by doctors, Failure to do so or violation of these terms of confidentiality may attract penalties.

Investigations
Aside centers who have their in-house diagnostic centers, the primary centers for investigations –laboratory, radiological and other procedural tests are diagnostic centers registered on the platform. If you have preference for non-registered centers, please advise them to register. It is free. One of the purposes of Applinic is to create an Electronic Patients Records (EPR) for all patients. All investigations conducted on the platform automatically update the results in the patients EPR. Sending patients for investigations in non-registered centers imply this part of the health record will be lost. Consequently doctors who use Applinic agree to use only diagnostic centers registered with the platform. The only rare exception to this policy is when no center in the platform provides such investigations, in which case the doctor will explain to the patient the implication of the non-inclusion of the results in his or her EPR.
Centers who have in-house diagnostic centers need to register such services separately and independently in the appropriate category. Their e-wallet accounts are run separately even though they may be operated by the same personnel. Applinic does not guarantee the validity and accuracy of results and reports received from diagnostic centers on the platform to patients. Doctors must ensure to validate or verify the quality and acuity of reports from radiologists, imaging scientists, pathologists and laboratory scientists before sending investigations to them. Applinic does not take or accept responsibility for consequences of wrong, inappropriate or incorrect diagnostic results and reports issued patients through the platform. Continuing to use Applinic implies agreement with these policies. Failure to observe the clause of sending investigation requests to only registered diagnostic centers, thereby jeopardizing the medical records of the patient as explained above is a violation of Applinic Terms of Use and may attract sanctions including account suspension.

Prescriptions
Aside centers who have their in-house pharmacies, the primary drug prescription service centers are pharmacies registered on the platform. If you have preference for non-registered pharmaceutical centers, please advise them to register. It is free. One of the purposes of Applinic is to create an Electronic Patients Records (EPR) for all patients. All prescriptions purchased by patients on the platform automatically update the patients drug history in the patients EPR. Sending patients to buy prescriptions in non-registered pharmacy stores imply this part of the patient’s health record will be lost. Consequently doctors who use Applinic agree to use only pharmacies registered with the platform. The only rare exception to this policy is when no center in the platform has such drugs in store in which case the doctor will explain to the patient the implication of non-inclusion of the prescription in his or her EPR.
Centers who have in-house pharmacies need to register such services separately and independently in the appropriate category. Their e-wallet accounts are run separately even though they may be operated by the same personnel. Applinic does not guarantee the efficacy of any drug sold on the platform to patients. Doctors must ensure to validate or verify pharmacies and their products before sending prescriptions to them. Applinic does not take or accept responsibility for consequences of bad, expired or adulterated pharmaceutical preparations procured for patients through the platform. Continuing to use Applinic implies agreement with these policies. Failure to observe the clause of sending prescriptions to only registered pharmacies, thereby jeopardizing the medical records of the patient as explained above is a violation of Applinic Terms of Use and may attract sanctions including account suspension.

Medical Reports
Every patient managed on Applinic is by policy entitled to a free medicalreport upon completion of management of each condition or before referral. This report summary is written in the appropriate field in the session page. The final patients’ bills are remitted to the doctor only after this report has beensubmitted.
Doctors may specifically charge patients for medical reports ONLY if they did not manage the patient prior to the request and in which case they must conduct the necessary physical examination and relevant investigations before issuing suchreports. The investigations conducted for medical reports remain subject to the Terms described above on Investigations. Medical reports have medico-legal implications and the issuance of them through Applinic is a service that must comply with global best practices just as other services. By signing up to manage patients on Applinic, you agree to comply with the terms in this section.

Referrals (Under Development)
There are two types of referrals – vertical and horizontal. Vertical referrals happen when junior doctors refer patients to specialists whilst horizontal referrals occur when specialists refer to their fellows. Even though vertical referrals attract Loyalty Rewards to encourage junior doctors referring patients to their senior colleagues, horizontal referrals doesn’t attract any such rewards.
During the registration, doctors are required to correctly fill their qualifications because they will be verified. Any false claims of qualifications may lead to denial of completion of the account registration. By registering to practice on Applinic you agree to provide the correct and accurate details of your medical qualifications.

Multimedia Communications
Applinic provides free multimedia communications between patients and doctors, pharmacies, laboratories, radiology centers and other platform users to enable more efficient patient management through real time communication and information exchange with all stakeholders. Chats, audio/video calls and video conferences may reveal or expose patient private information such as health conditions and identities to third parties if not practiced in a secure manner. Consequently, health service providers must practice secure communications by ensuring through all possible means and efforts there are no third parties hearing, seeing, peeping, peeking or eaves dropping to an ongoing or previous multimedia communication between patients and providers. If the leakage of patients’ private information to third parties occurs due to a less than an appropriate secure communication practice by the provider then the legal consequences of such leakages will be borne by the doctor. Applinic or any of its staff and partners will not be held liable or responsible for such a breach of confidence.

Consultation Fees
Doctors charge an optional consultation fee before management of patients. This fee is fixed by each doctor in his dashboard and can be reviewed at will. Fees should not be so high as to scare patients at first sight, rather they should be inviting. The promoted practice on the platform is for doctors to respond to the patient’s complaints first with a brief overview of their understanding of the case, the various differentials and the possible management plan and then a conclusion with the consultation fee. When the patient is in agreement with this plan and the fee, he will then accept the offer. His account will be debited and the doctor’s credited. Then communication tools (chat, audio, video), investigation, prescription and the appointment menu will all be activated.
This is Applinic’s promoted ethical practice for online consultation on the platform and all doctors on Applinic are encouraged, but not mandatorily so, to comply with this recommended policy standard.

Payments
All payments by patients from consultation to discharge are to be compulsorily made through the e-wallet.

The history of all transactions is accessible on the doctor’s dashboard. By registering to use the Applinic platform, you agree to receive all payments for your services and products from patients only through the e-wallet. You also sign to not accept cash, cheque, electronic or other payments from the patient or corporate client without passing it through the platform e-wallet system. Any collection of payments through means aside the acceptable channel is a violation of the terms of usage of Applinic and may attract penalties except when the e-wallet system is experiencing downtime in which case conventional channels may be used but with the intent and agreement to provide a record of the transaction when the e-wallet service resumes.

Platform Discounts
The costs of medical treatments and procedures are determined by the doctors and their practices and not by Applinic. These costs are to be significantly cheaper for patients who access the services through Applinic than for those who do so through the conventional means. We created the Applinic Discount to achieve this and other impacts. By using Applinic, you agree to make your charges and fees for service and treatment through the platform cheaper than your normal charges.
