Terms and Conditions
HealthAware LLC (“HealthAware”) provides health information applications and other services to health care customers through one or more Order Forms and/or Statement(s) of Work which are organized under an umbrella Master Agreement. The Order Form(s) and Statement(s) of Work, as well as the Master Agreement, are subject to and governed by these Terms and Conditions and for ease of reference shall be referred to, individually and collectively, as the “Order Documents.” The customer executing such Order Documents under these Terms and Conditions shall be referred to as the “Client” and the applications and other services identified in the applicable Order Documents are referred to as the “Solution.” References to the Terms and Conditions herein shall be deemed to include the applicable Master Agreement unless the context demands otherwise. HealthAware and Client are collectively referred to as the “Parties” and individually as a “Party.”
- The Solution. HealthAware authorizes Client to access and use the Solution as described in these Terms and Conditions and the applicable Order Documents for the Term as set forth in the Master Agreement and the applicable Order Documents.
- HealthAware may modify the Solution from time to time, including by adding or deleting features and functions, in an effort to update and enhance the Solution. But HealthAware will not make changes to the Solution that materially reduce the functionality of the Solution provided to Client during the Term of the applicable Order Documents unless such changes are required to comply with applicable laws or are required to prevent substantial harm to the Solution or to HealthAware’s customers. HealthAware may provide some elements of the Solution through third party service providers.
- Client may purchase professional services pursuant to a Statement of Work under the Master Agreement (“Consulting Services”). Unless otherwise described in the applicable Statement of Work, the Consulting Services HealthAware provides may consist of implementation, configuration, promotional and/or training services. Fees for these Consulting Services are in addition to any recurring fees for the Solution. Unless otherwise agreed, all Consulting Services are performed remotely.
- Client agrees to use the Notice of Privacy Practices template as provided with the Solution in conjunction with its use and deployment of the Solution or, to the extent that Client desires to modify the template or develop its own terms, Client warrants that the modified terms shall contain data authorization rights, warranty and remedy disclaimers, and liability limits substantially similar in effect to those set forth in the example template. Client shall make its proposed version of such terms available to HealthAware for review at least five (5) business days prior to Client’s publication of such terms and, upon request, shall modify its terms to conform to the requirements of these Terms and Conditions.
- Payment. Client agrees to pay HealthAware the amounts as indicated in the applicable Order Documents. Client agrees to pay any taxes applicable to its use of the Solution and performance of Consulting Services. Client shall have no liability for any taxes based upon HealthAware’s gross revenues or net income. Any dispute with an invoice must be brought to HealthAware’s attention within 60 days of the invoice date or Client hereby waives said dispute. HealthAware may charge interest at the highest legal rate compounded monthly for all amounts past due by at least 30 days.
- Term and Termination. The Master Agreement is effective as of the date the last party assents to the Master Agreement and will remain in effect pursuant to its terms. Order Forms and Statement(s) of Work are effective as of the date set forth therein and will remain in effect during the term stated. Unless otherwise stated in the applicable Order Document, each Order Document will renew automatically for successive one-year terms unless terminated by either party in writing at least 60 days prior to expiration of the then-current term. Either party may terminate the Master Agreement with or without cause upon written notice to the other party and either party may terminate or an Order Form or Statement of Work for cause: (i) upon sixty (60) days’ notice to the other party of a material breach thereof if such breach remains uncured at the expiration of such period, or (ii) immediately, if the other party becomes the subject of a petition in bankruptcy or any other proceeding relating to insolvency, liquidation or assignment for the benefit of creditors. The Order Documents may not otherwise be terminated prior to the end of the Term.
- HealthAware may suspend Client’s and/or any user’s access to the Solution for: (i) use of the Solution in a way that violates applicable local, state, federal, or foreign laws or regulations or the terms of this Agreement, (ii) non-payment of any amount past due, or (iii) use of the Solution in a manner that may cause harm to HealthAware or others. HealthAware may provide electronic or telephonic notice to Client prior to suspension of the Solution.
- Effect of Termination. Termination of the Master Agreement, by itself, shall not result in the termination of any underlying active Order Document. If Client terminates an Order Document for cause, HealthAware will promptly refund any prepaid but unused fees to Client. If HealthAware terminates an Order Document for cause, Client will promptly pay to HealthAware all unpaid fees for services performed through the date of termination as well as all fees that would have been paid to HealthAware during the remainder of the then-current term of the Order Document. Fees are otherwise non-refundable.
- Trademark License.
- License. Client hereby grants HealthAware a nonexclusive, nontransferable, nonsublicenseable, revocable, royalty-free license to use the trademarks identified on Schedule A (the “Marks”) in connection with the configuration of the Solution.
- Quality Control. HealthAware agrees that the nature and quality of the Solution offered under the Marks shall conform to industry standards and to mutually agreed standards set by Client and HealthAware from time to time. HealthAware agrees to cooperate with Client in facilitating mutually agreeable control of the nature and quality of the Solution.
- Ownership and Rights.

- Support. Technical support will be provided as part of the Solution, with phone and e-mail support provided during HealthAware’s standard business hours. HealthAware will attempt to respond to support questions within one business day. While in practice most responses are generally faster, HealthAware does not promise or guarantee any specific response time. Client acknowledges and agrees that at times the Solution may be unavailable for any reason whatsoever, including, without limitation: (a) equipment malfunctions; (b) periodic maintenance procedures or repairs; or (c) causes that are beyond the control of HealthAware or that are not reasonably foreseeable.
