It is important that you read all the following terms and conditions carefully. This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions that apply to your access and use of the internet website and the information technology platform located at https://www.walkin.ca (collectively, the “Site”), owned and operated by Walkin.ca Health Inc. (“Walkin”, “we”, “our” or “us”), and the services available thereon (the “Services”), including without limitation the services that enable you to access telehealth services (healthcare delivered through interactive text, audio and/or video technology, where the patient and the healthcare provider are not in the same physical location) provided by healthcare organizations and providers registered to practice in British Columbia, Canada (collectively, “Authorized Providers”) and certain other health-related services. Such healthcare and health-related services provided by Authorized Providers are defined in this Agreement as “Healthcare Services.”
DO NOT USE THE SITE OR SERVICES FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY, YOU SHOULD DIAL “911” IMMEDIATELY.
2. Ability to enter into this Agreement
In order to enter into this Agreement you must have reached the legal age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence, and be fully able and competent to enter into the terms, conditions, obligations, affirmations, representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement, and to abide by and comply with this Agreement. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are legally eligible to enter into this Agreement under any laws applicable to you.
To access the Site and the Services, you must also be a temporary or permanent resident in the areas of British Columbia, Canada listed below or have otherwise entered into a Governing Law and Jurisdiction Agreement with the applicable Authorized Provider (“Residency Requirement”):
Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Surrey, Delta, Tsawwassen, White Rock, Langley, Abbotsford, Pitt Meadows, or Maple Ridge.
You represent and warrant that you meet the Residency Requirement, and if you cease to meet the Residency Requirement, you must cease using the Site and Services.
If you are entering into this Agreement on behalf of a registered dependent, you represent, warrant and covenant that you are authorized to act for your registered dependent and more particularly to make decisions regarding their healthcare. In this Agreement, unless the context otherwise requires, references to “you” and “your” refer to both you and your registered dependent.
3. General information is not medical advice
The Materials available on the Site and the Services are for informational purposes only and do not constitute professional medical advice, diagnosis, treatment, or recommendations of any kind by Walkin. All information provided by you to Walkin in connection with registering with Walkin to access the Services (such as your personal information or nature or your medical condition or the service you are seeking) and all information provided by Walkin to you, or in connection with any communications supported by Walkin, is intended to be for general information or administrative purposes only and does not substitute medical advice and shall not be deemed to constitute communication with your Authorized Provider.
4. No physician-patient relationship
While Walkin facilitates your selection of, and communications with, Authorized Providers, Walkin does not provide Healthcare Services or medical or healthcare advice or care, and no information or Materials available on the Site should be deemed to be healthcare advice.
This Agreement or the performance of the Services by Walkin shall not create a doctor-patient between you and Walkin. Only regulated health professionals may provide Healthcare Services. Authorized Providers may be Authorized Physicians or Authorized Non-Physician Providers. Authorized Physicians are physicians registered to practice medicine in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. Authorized Non-Physician Providers are regulated health professionals other than physicians (such as psychotherapists, physiotherapists, dieticians, nurse practitioners or nurses) registered to practice their profession in British Columbia, Canada.
5. Relationship with Authorized Providers
Authorized Providers are independent of and not employed by Walkin and are merely using the Site as a way to communicate with you or made available for your informational purposes.
Any information or advice received from an Authorized Provider comes from them alone, and not from Walkin. Walkin does not recommend or endorse any specific Authorized Providers, tests, physicians, medications, products, or procedures. Walkin does not provide your primary care provider with a report of the Healthcare Services that you receive, unless you specifically request that Walkin do so. Any Healthcare Services provided by Authorized Providers through the Service are not intended to take the place of appointments with your regular primary care provider or to replace in-person healthcare and assessment.
The Authorized Providers, and not Walkin, are responsible for the quality and appropriateness of the care they render to you, including compliance with standards of care, record-keeping and other professional obligations and compliance with privacy law. Walkin does not make any representations or warranties about the training or skill of any Authorized Providers or the availability of the Authorized Providers. You will be provided with available Authorized Providers based solely on the information you submit to the Site. You are ultimately responsible for accepting to receive physician services from the Authorized Provider selected by Walkin and Walkin is not a party to any doctor-patient relationship formed between you and an Authorized Provider. You acknowledge that your reliance on any Authorized Providers or information delivered by the Authorized Providers via the Site or Service is solely at your own risk and you assume full responsibility for all risks associated herewith.
Neither Walkin, nor any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or any third party who may promote the Site or Service or provide a link to the Service, shall be liable for any professional advice obtained from an Authorized Provider via the Site or Service, nor any information obtained on the Site.
Your Authorized Provider may recommend that you attend Walkin’s physical clinic, located at 1 – 12818 72nd Ave, Surrey BC, V3W 2M9. Walkin’s physical clinic has limited operating hours and appointment availability is subject to change.
6. Risks of telehealth services
By using the Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with telehealth services and you agree to use the Services with full understanding of the potential risks. These include but are not limited to the following:
- information transmitted may not be sufficient (e.g. poor resolution of images) to allow for appropriate medical or health care decision making by the Authorized Provider;
- delays in evaluation or treatment could occur due to failures of electronic equipment;
- a lack of access to your medical records may result in adverse drug interactions or allergic reactions or other judgment errors;
- although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of health information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your health information;
- electronic communications can introduce malware into a computer system, and potentially damage or disrupt the computer, networks, and security settings;
- electronic communications can be forwarded, intercepted, circulated, stored, or even changed without the knowledge or permission of the Authorized Provider or the patient and it is your responsibility to follow-up or confirm the intended recipient has received your communications; and
- even after copies of electronic communications have been deleted, back-up copies may exist on a computer system.
7. Healthcare Services acceptable use and conduct
As a term and condition of receiving the Services under this Agreement, you acknowledge and agree to the following:
- As with any other healthcare consultation, no results can be guaranteed or assured in connection with Healthcare Services. Your Authorized Provider may determine Healthcare Services are not appropriate for some or all of your treatment needs or that he or she is not permitted to provide the services you require and may elect not to provide Healthcare Services to you. Authorized Providers also have the discretion to discontinue the provision of Healthcare Services to you at any time and for any reason;
- You are responsible for providing the Authorized Provider with the information that he or she advises is required in order to provide you with Healthcare Services. If you decline to provide that information, the Authorized Provider may not be able or willing to provide you with Healthcare Services;
- The following symptoms are NOT eligible to be treated through the Healthcare Services: chest pains; difficulty breathing; fever in children under the age of 6 months; blackouts or feeling like you may blackout; seizures; any impairment in level of consciousness; stroke like symptoms such as impaired sensation or paralysis to one side of your body; inability to speak or comprehend language; any abdominal pain severe enough that you are unable to comfortably walk, or any other condition which you feel requires emergency attention;
- The Province of British Columbia has established the provincial pharmacy network and database known as “PharmaNet”. Authorized Providers may access your personal health information contained within PharmaNet for the purpose of providing therapeutic treatment or care to you, or for the purpose of monitoring drug use by you;
- You will not report drug reactions, side effects or adverse events through the Site. You will report any medication reactions, side effects or other adverse events to your primary care provider, or if you do not have one, to the nearest walk-in clinic or emergency room, or in an emergency, call 911; and
- You will seek emergency help or follow-up care when recommended by an Authorized Provider. You should always follow up with your Authorized Provider if you had any medical investigation done. If your Authorized Provider does not contact you following your medical investigation, you should not assume the lack of contact means that no follow-up care is required.
Walkin is not a pharmaceutical manufacturer or an online pharmacy. Walkin does not endorse any specific medication, pharmacy, or pharmacologic product.
Authorized Providers may prescribe you a medication only where they have an ongoing treating relationship with you. Authorized Providers may limit supply based upon regulations and will only prescribe a medication as determined in their own discretion and professional judgment. There is no guarantee a prescription will be written. Authorized Providers do not prescribe controlled substances or scheduled medications, or certain other drugs which may be harmful because of their potential for abuse. Authorized Providers reserve the right to deny care for actual or potential misuse of the Services.
You agree that any prescriptions that you acquire from an Authorized Provider will be solely for your personal use. You agree to fully and carefully read all provided product information and labels and to contact a physician or pharmacist if you have any questions regarding the prescription.
