  1. Background.InteliChart, LLC (together with its parents, subsidiaries and affiliates, “InteliChart”) maintains, operates and/or hosts the InteliChart Open API (the “Open API”) in compliance with the “Meaningful Use” Stage 3 requirements promulgated by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT at 45 CFR § 170.315(g)(7)-(9) (“MU3”). The following terms and conditions (“Terms of Use”) govern access to and use of (i) the Open API, (ii) any information about users of InteliChart’s Patient Portal accessible through the Open API (“User Information”), and (iii) any and all manuals, instructions and other documents and materials that InteliChart provides or makes available in any form or medium which describe the functionality, components, features or requirements of the Open API, including any aspect of the configuration, integration, operation, use, support or maintenance thereof (the “Documentation”).
  2. Acceptance of the Terms of Use.Please read these Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Open API. By registering to access or use the Open API as a Developer (as defined below), and by clicking to accept or agree to these Terms of Use when this option is made available to you, you accept and agree to be bound by and abide by these Terms of Use. If you do not accept and agree to these Terms of Use, you must not access or use the Open API.

    The Open API is offered and available only to third party developers who will use the Open API and the User Information for the patient access purposes specifically contemplated by MU3 (“Developers”).

If you do not meet these eligibility requirements, you must not access or use the Open API.

  3. Changes to the Terms of Use.We may revise and update these Terms of Use from time-to-time in our sole discretion. Changes are effective immediately when we post them. Your continued use of the Open API following the posting of revised Terms of Use means that you accept and agree to the changes. You must check this page frequently so that you are aware of any changes, and immediately discontinue access or use of the Open API if you do not agree to comply with the revised Terms of Use.

    2. Conditions and Restrictions.You must: (1) use commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access to or use of the Open API and User Information, including implementing commercially reasonable administrative, physical and technical safeguards for the protection of the security, confidentiality and integrity of all User Information in a manner that ensures compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations and each end user privacy policy that applies to your end users (including heightened protection for personally identifiable information and protected health information); (2) use the Open API, the User Information, and the Documentation solely in compliance with your own end user privacy policies and with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, including (to the extent applicable) the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (Pub.

Any access to or use of User Information beyond what is described in the preceding sentence is a breach of these Terms of Use and grounds for immediate suspension of your Developer account or termination of these Terms of Use.
    4. Documentation.The Documentation provided is intended to comply in all respects with the requirements of MU3. You may keep copies of the Documentation, and you may access the Documentation through the InteliChart website at https://openapi.intelichart.com. Developers wishing to share the Documentation must do so by linking other Developers to the Documentation hosted on the InteliChart website.

Once all of the necessary information has been received an access key will be provided by the InteliChart support team within 48 business hours.
    6. Patient Authentication.Prior to permitting you to access any User Information through the Open API, we will verify and authenticate the identity of the applicable user as follows: a user will obtain a unique passcode from their Practice and enter that passcode in your application to gain access to their PHI. A consent notice is required to be presented to the user before authentication. The following must be presented to the user: “By registering with this passcode, you acknowledge that your information, including personal health information, will be transmitted at your discretion to the applicable third party application, and made available to you through the applicable third party application, and you specifically consent to and authorize InteliChart to transmit you information in this manner.” Any access to or use of User Information without complying with these authentication procedures is a breach of these Terms of Use and grounds for immediate suspension of your Developer account or termination of these Terms of Use.
    7. Monitoring Use of Information.You acknowledge and agree that InteliChart or its nominee may, upon InteliChart’s request, inspect and audit your use of the Open API and the User Information to confirm compliance with these Terms of Use. All such audits shall be conducted during regular business hours and in a manner that does not unreasonably interfere with your business operations. You shall make available all such books, records, equipment, information and personnel, and provide all such cooperation and assistance, as may reasonably be requested by or on behalf of InteliChart with respect to such audit.
    8. Attribution.In each case in which you have accessed any User Information through the Open API and transmitted that User Information back to the requesting user, in whatever form or medium, you must provide notice to such user along with such transmission that the transmitted User Information was “Provided through InteliChart Patient Portal.” You may not otherwise use any InteliChart name, logo or other trademark for any other purpose, and if you wish to do so please contact [email protected] for permission.
  5. Ownership of IP.Developers own developments they create using the Open API. InteliChart owns the Open API, the Documentation, and all intellectual property rights therein, as well as any enhancements, improvements, modifications, updates or other derivatives thereof (such as enhancements to the Open API tools or the Documentation); provided, however, that InteliChart makes the Documentation available for viewing by the public via its website at https://openapi.intelichart.com. Any suggested improvements of the Open API or Documentation may become a part of such materials without any obligation or notice to the submitter.

InteliChart’s exercise of its right to suspend performance shall be without prejudice to InteliChart’s right to terminate these Terms of Use upon written notice to you.
  10. Governing Law; Miscellaneious.These Terms of Use are governed by North Carolina law. The exclusive venue for any dispute relating to these Terms is Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. You and InteliChart consent to the personal jurisdiction of these courts. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions, which will remain in full force and effect. Waiver of any of these Terms will not be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. These Terms of Use, as modified from time-to-time, constitute the entire agreement between you and InteliChart with respect to the use of the Open API, User Information and Documentation.
