NIA MAY MODIFY THIS AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME, AND SUCH MODIFICATION SHALL BE EFFECTIVE WHEN THE SITE IS NEXT USED BY YOU.

The RadMD services are presented by NIA for the sole purpose of making a medical benefit determination on behalf of health plan clients. IT IS NOT INTENDED, AND MUST NOT BE TAKEN, TO BE A RECOMMENDATION WITH RESPECT TO THE PROVISION OR PRACTICE OF MEDICINE, OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL HEALTH CARE ADVICE OR SERVICE IN ANY JURISDICTION. A determination by NIA denying or approving a particular diagnostic procedure does not relieve Contracted Provider from recommending such care as s/he deems to be appropriate. Further, any determination by NIA is not meant to interfere with the traditional patient-provider relationship.
NIA cannot and does not verify or warrant the truth, accuracy, or completeness of any information provided to it in generating an authorization or any information contained on this site. All submissions by Contracted Provider are considered part of the medical record. The Contracted Provider is responsible for providing truthful, accurate, and complete information when seeking authorization because this information is relied upon by NIA/RadMD in making the benefits determination. Any clinical discussions that take place during messaging sessions are also part of the medical record and contribute to the benefits determination. Appropriate professional courtesy, practice, and decorum are expected during these sessions. Further, the Contracted Provider is responsible for ensuring the use of independent professional judgement in making diagnostic, treatment, or other decisions based upon the information obtained from NIA/RadMD.
RadMD IS NOT TARGETED TO USERS IN ANY PARTICULAR LOCALITY, NOR IS IT INTENDED TO CONSTITUTE THE DOING OF BUSINESS IN ANY JURISDICTION, NOR TO BE A SOLICITATION OF BUSINESS ANYWHERE, NOR TO CONSTITUTE ANY CONTACTS WITH ANY JURISDICTION OUTSIDE OF THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY.

If you have established a connection to RadMD but are not actively using it (screen movement), User will be automatically disconnected after 30 minutes. The timeout interval provides security for Users who forget to log out. Timeout practice also helps the performance of the web server by freeing the resources dedicated to that User's connection, thus freeing system resources to be available to others.
