Our solutions include our Patient appointment management solution, Practitioner digital visibility solution and Tele-Medicine (Video consulting) solution.

This Privacy Policy (this "Policy") applies to the software and information services we offer through our website located at, our cloud-based solution provides services to patients, clinical coordinators and Medical Practitioners. It provides services for setting up the virtual clinic, websites of medical practitioners, digital awareness of Doctor'sachievements on the SPIRALS Health platform, Calendar management for Medical practitioners, multiple clinic management, Patient management and appointment management, Video calling and consulting with patients, Clinical Coordinator processes for the Clinic, Preferred medical practitioner search for patient, Appointment management with desired medical practitioner, TeleMedicine / Video consulting with Medical Practitioner, option to create a personal medical profile, family medical history and create dependents on one account, Authorization of access through One time Security Password (OTP), patient payment tracking option, Personal appointment tracking, Live tracker to track patient’s turn for consultation, information sharing through e-mails or SMS and information services (collectively, our "Services"). This Policy does not apply to any other services. Maintaining your trust is important to us, and we strongly encourage you to read this Policy in full.

The purpose of this Policy is to describe how we and our partners collect, use, and share information about you. This Policy may incidentally describe how our Services gather and use information about other individuals or information about you that may be submitted by another user. This Privacy Policy, however, only applies to how we and our partners collect, use, and share information about you concerning the Services covered by our SPIRALS HEALTH TERMS AND AGREEMENT ("User Agreement"), and not to any other service we may offer to any other individual or customer.

Some of our users - such as Medical Practitioners - are subject to laws and regulations governing the use and disclosure of health information they create or receive, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended from time to time, together with the regulations adopted thereunder ("HIPAA"). When we store, process or transmit "individually identifiable health information" (as defined by HIPAA) on behalf of a Medical Practitioner who has entered into a SPIRALS HEALTH TERMS AND AGREEMENT, we do so as its "business associate" (as also defined by HIPAA). Under this agreement, we cannot use or disclose individually identifiable health information in a way that the provider itself may not. We are also required to, among other things, apply reasonable and appropriate measures to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the individually identifiable health information we store and process on behalf of such providers. For this Policy, the term "Medical Practitioner" means any user who is a "health care provider" or “Doctor” (as defined by HIPAA) or any user who is a member of such health care provider's "workforce" (as also defined by HIPAA).

Some third parties may allow you to opt out of targeted advertising based on this information.

Information from Other Sources:

How our Services Allow Users to Share Information:

One-on-One Communications:

Our Services can be used to facilitate one-on-one communications between users and other persons. Examples include:

  • Finding details of any on-boarded Medical Practitioner through their system-generated website;
  • Reading blogs written by Medical Practitioners or other information provided by them on their website;
  • Understand services and expertise held by Medical Practitioners;
  • See Calendar of Medical Practitioners and available time slots for appointments among multiple clinics;
  • Book appointments by unregistered patients with just One-Time Security Passwords (OTSP / OTP);
  • Logging into the personal dashboard through a password or One Time Security Password (OTSP / OTP);
  • Allow to share personal information with specific Medical Practitionerclinics by authorizing them through system generated One Time Security Password (OTSP / OTP);
  • Sending an appointment confirmation or other notification to another user;
  • Making a referral to another Medical Practitioner; or
  • Sending a message to a patient through SMS or e-mail.

In any one-on-one communication, users are sending information to one another or to an individual or entity who may not be a user of the Services. Depending on the message, this could include the sharing of contact and other personally identifiable information.

Directories and Personal Website:

If you are a Medical Practitioner who has entered into a SPIRALS HEALTH TERMS AND AGREEMENT, you will have the ability to have your contact and directory information listed in one or more of our professional directories of Medical Practitioners on our Services that users and/or the general public may be able to view. These directories include profile information (e.g., contact, speciality and other information) and other features that allow users and/or the general public to locate and contact those listed in the directory.

SPIRALS Health provides a system-generated website for every Medical Practitioner on SPIRALS Health subdomain. These sites are renewable every year with service renewal by the Practitioner.

Medical Practitioners can add, update or remove content, photos, blogs, articles, clinical information, awards and recognitions, educational information and so on from the website by themselves through SPIRALS Health's provided simplified tool.

If you visit our Services seeking to contact or schedule an appointment with a provider listed in one of our directories, you may need to submit personally identifiable and other information.

Public Forums:

Our Services include public forums that allow users to communicate with groups of users or the general public. Information, Blogs, Informative Videos and articles posted by any user in one of our communities may be available to a wide range of individuals and should be presumed public. We strongly advise users to exercise care in selecting what information they share with our communities or public forums, and strongly recommend against sharing any personally identifiable, health, or other sensitive information that could directly or indirectly be traced to any individual, including themselves.

Surveys, Feedback, and Informational Programs:

From time to time you may receive survey requests through emails or displays within our Services that request feedback on a variety of topics. These programs may be sponsored or funded by third parties and may include branded or unbranded content about medical conditions, treatments and products, or safety and regulatory information resources. If you choose to engage with or use one of these requests, you may be asked to provide information that may be used to supplement the information that you submitted to our Services. This information may be shared with the sponsor of the program.


Our Services allow users to store personally identifiable health information ("Records"), including Records that identify other individuals, including other users. Certain of our Services permit users to share all or portions of these Records at their discretion. Such Records are not mandatory and are at the discretion of the user to create or not to create.

You should be aware that this Policy covers only the information you submit through our Services. If you contact or exchange information with another user in person or through a means other than our Services, such activity is not covered by this Policy. Because our Services enable users to share information you share with them, you should take care in selecting with whom you share your Records and other information. Although our Services process such transmissions, we are not responsible for the actions of persons with whom you share your Records and other information.

Emails and Other Communications:

Our Services allow users to communicate with others through our in-product instant messaging services, Service-branded emails, and other electronic communication channels. Communications that are sent by or on behalf of a user are indicated as being "From" that user, such as when our Services send an appointment notification from, and on behalf of, a Medical Practitioner to his or her patient. Additionally, we may communicate administrative or Service-related announcements through email or other communications within our Services. These communications may be "real-time" communications triggered automatically upon certain events or dates, such as a repeated sign-in failure or an appointment notification. Please note that you may not be able to opt-out of receiving certain messages from us.

Emails and other communications from individuals who are not users of our Services, or that we send in connection with business agreements or subject matter other than the User Agreements, are not covered by this Policy. If, for example, you contact us regarding a job opening, that communication to us is not covered by this Policy even though that job opening may have been posted on our Services.

Third-Party Integrations

Our Services may allow you to connect your account on our Services with third parties, such as when a Medical Practitioner seeks to integrate our electronic prescribing module into our partner's national electronic prescribing network, or when a Medical Practitioner approves us integrating or linking his or her account with a third parties' billing software (any such integration, an "Integration"). Integrations can also be initiated by third parties seeking to establish Integrations with you, such as when a clinical laboratory desires to transmit lab results directly into a Medical Practitioner's electronic health record account rather than transmitting the result by fax or other means. Your use of these Integrations is entirely optional. Should you choose to utilize these Integrations, you may be prompted to permit us to perform certain actions in your account, such as creating, updating or deleting certain information. Please note that if you choose to utilize any Integration, any information you elect to provide to third parties will be subject to whatever agreement you have with them, including, if applicable, their terms of use or privacy policy, and not this Policy. To disable an Integration, you can share your request and information over email with us at

The purposes of such sharing may include administration, recordkeeping or compliance obligations, and assessing the effectiveness or utilization of any such program;

  • With our current and future subsidiaries or corporate affiliates or actual or potential investors;
  • In connection with a potential or actual sale, merger, transfer, exchange, reorganization or other disposition (whether of assets, stock, or otherwise) of all or a portion of the business conducted by our Services. If such a transaction occurs, the acquiring company's use of your information will remain subject to this Policy, as may be subsequently amended;
  • Any other purposes described in this Policy or your User Agreement; or

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and protect against the inappropriate use of the information we collect, store, and transmit, we deploy a range of technical, physical and administrative safeguards. Under our SPIRALS HEALTH TERM AND AGREEMENT and applicable law, we are required to apply reasonable and appropriate measures to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of individually identifiable health information residing on, and processed by, those elements of our Services that we operate as a business associate on behalf of Medical Practitioners. However, it is important to remember that no system can guarantee 100% security at all times. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of information stored on or transmitted to or from our Services.
