You can withdraw your consent at any time. Our support is available to you at any time support@drd.at .    

3. Video and patient information and documentation

With your registration and a paid order, you initiate a contract with drd GmbH. drd GmbH will match your payment details (customer number for mobile phone operators, credit card data for credit card payments, if applicable, and insurance data for insurance customers, if applicable) and, if they match, confirm you as a customer. Such a comparison does not take place if you purchase the drd app via in-app billing in the Apple or Google store. If the contract is confirmed, you will become a "registered drd user". As a registered drd user, these general terms and conditions (part A) and those of the doctors who can be reached via the drd app (part B) apply.

As a registered drd user, you can use the drd app to contact the next available general practitioner from the pool of doctors who use the drd app to communicate with patients. In the drd app you can see whether a doctor is currently available and how long the waiting time is. If a doctor is not available immediately, you can register and you will be called back via video telephony after the specified waiting time has expired. In order to enable as many patients as possible to have access to a doctor, the duration of a medical video consultation is limited to 15 minutes.

drd GmbH connects doctors with patients via the drd app and thus operates exclusively a telemedicine Communication platform.The doctors advising via the drd app by means of video telephony are not active for drd GmbH as doctors, but can only be reached by you via the drd app via video telephony. drd is not a health care provider and is not liable and gives no guarantee for the content of the medical advice that you receive via the drd app. The respective consulting doctor is solely responsible for this. By contacting a doctor, you conclude a treatment contract with the consulting doctor. For this contract between you and the doctor, the general terms and conditions contained in Part B apply, which drd GmbH publishes on behalf of the consulting doctors as part of these general terms and conditions.

Please note that not every health issue is suitable for advice via video consultation. In the case of urgent, threatening clinical conditions in particular, it is important to contact the medical emergency service or the rescue service directly, depending on the urgency. In Vienna, for example, the medical service can be reached on (141) or the ambulance service on (144). Please inform yourself about such services in the localities in which you use the drd app.

We kindly ask you to call an ambulance immediately instead of using the app if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Cardiac arrest
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Symptoms in which a heart attack must be ruled out include: angina pectoris, tightness / pressure in the chest, cold sweat
  • Symptoms of a stroke include: new symptoms of paralysis, speech disorders, confusion
  • Seizure
  • Bleeding and injuries
  • Suicidal thoughts

In the case of other clinical presentations, too, a doctor who you have reached via the drd app can refuse advice on the basis of your state of health and / or the symptoms described and suggest that you go to the medical service, the ambulance or an inpatient facility. In any case, it is up to the consulting doctor to decide whether your state of health is suitable for advising you via video telephony, prescribing medication for you electronically, writing you a sick note electronically, writing you a prescription or continuing in this way to refer you to a specialist. The fact that the doctor is of the opinion that your case is not suitable for a video consultation and that you should visit a medical facility or an emergency doctor / ambulance does not give you any claims against drd GmbH.

You can use the drd app to save and share your patient information and documents for the consulting doctor in your patient file. This information is available to the doctor during the video consultation with you and 24 hours afterwards, afterwards only your own doctor's letter. drd has no access to your patient documentation and information.

Please load all documents that you would like to see used for your video call with the doctor in your patient file before the video consultation with the doctor. You can save photos or PDF files in your patient record.

The consulting doctor can save prescriptions, referrals and sick leave confirmations as well as their own doctor's letter in your electronic patient record. Prescriptions that you receive in this way meet legal requirements in Austria and can be redeemed electronically in Austria. However, drd GmbH does not guarantee that pharmacies in Austria or in other countries will actually accept such electronic prescriptions. Please note that any certificates of incapacity for work must also be sent electronically to your statutory health insurance company in Austria.

If you are a subscription customer, documents that you have loaded into your electronic patient record will remain available for you and the doctors you contact via the drd app until your subscription expires. Drd GmbH reserves the right to delete them after the one-year period or after the contract with you has expired, whichever occurs earlier. In the meantime, however, you can download the information and documents contained therein or save them on an electronic medium of your choice. You can also (again) load the relevant patient information and documents into your electronic patient file at any time during the ongoing contract with drd GmbH.

Please note that data loss may occur in the event of technical malfunctions, internet and power disruptions. Please check the content of your patient file regularly, especially after such disturbances. You are responsible for the content of your patient record.

4. Remuneration

The remuneration for the drd service has two components: the remuneration for the medical service and the remuneration for the drd GmbH service.

The billing of all (also) medical services obtained from drd GmbH takes place exclusively via drd GmbH. In order to make the drd app more accessible for you, drd GmbH offers you the following usage and payment models for your own services and those of the doctors:

  • With the drd Abo: Pay a fixed monthly subscription fee according to our price list and you can use all functions of the drd app for the duration of your contract with drd GmbH according to the fair use principle.

drd GmbH is entitled to adjust the agreed prices to the consumer price index. The changes to the CPI 2015 for February 2020 (107.8) or another consumer price index that takes its place are final. 

All services are billed using the payment option you have chosen. You can see the payment options that are currently available to you in your master data. You can change the payment option you have chosen at any time. You will receive an invoice for all services.

Please note that due to legal regulations and the design of the service, we have to issue all invoices with 20% sales tax. Please contact your health insurance company to find out whether the full amount will be refunded to you.

Currently, private health insurance providers are not reimburing the drd subscription fees. Please clarify with your private insurance company whether these costs will be covered and any VAT charged. If you have any questions, please contact our customer service support@drd.at .

All invoices are stored in your patient file and you can access them at any time using your password. You agree to this by registering in the drd app. The consulting doctor will also save the bills for a one-time video consultation or for video consultations in subscription light in your patient file so that you can submit them to your private health insurance company. To facilitate reimbursement by your private insurance company, these bills may contain your ICD diagnosis (s). This can only be seen by your attending physician and you, not by drd GmbH. The invoices that are stored in your account, which drd GmbH must keep until the end of the statutory retention period, do not contain any diagnostic data.

This does not apply if the drd GbmH has a service contract with your private health insurance company. In this case, drd GmbH will forward the invoices, if necessary with your ICD diagnosis, directly to your insurance company for billing purposes, provided that you have separately agreed to this service.

For the purposes of liability and warranty, the value of the medical services and those of drd GmbH are broken down as follows: In the case of a one-time medical video consultation, drd GmbH only charges these and not its own services.

The following applies to subscription models: All payments by the customer in the three-month subscription period that exceed the value of the medical services received in this period are those for the services of drd GmbH. The value of the medical services is determined by multiplying the number of medical video consultations obtained by the standard price (this is the highest price according to our price list) of a one-time medical video consultation according to our price list. This rule applies to both available subscription models, even if medical services are billed at a reduced rate in the Abo-light model (in this model, too, the number of video consultations is multiplied by the highest price of a medical video consultation according to our price list).

Part B – your contract with the individual doctors using the drd app

1. Treatment contract

All doctors who use the drd app for video consultation with patients are general practitioners licensed in Austria. You use the drd app in your own name and for your own account. By using the drd app functions for contacting a doctor, you conclude a treatment contract with the doctor whom you contact in this way. By registering in the drd app and accepting the general terms and conditions of drd GmbH, you agree that Part B of these general terms and conditions will apply to your contractual relationship with the consulting doctor.

You acknowledge that the doctor cannot physically treat you via video telephony, but can only advise you. You also acknowledge that not all health conditions are suitable for a consultation via video telephony. Especially in the case of urgent, life-threatening illnesses, it is important to contact the medical emergency service or the ambulance service directly, depending on the urgency. In Vienna, for example, the medical service can be reached on 141 or the ambulance service on 144. Please inform yourself about such services in the localities in which you use the drd app.

We ask you to call an ambulance immediately, especially if you have the following symptoms:

  • Cardiac arrest
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Symptoms in which a heart attack must be ruled out include: angina pectoris, tightness / pressure in the chest, cold sweat
  • Symptoms of a stroke include: new symptoms of paralysis, speech disorders, confusion
  • Seizure
  • Bleeding and injuries
  • Suicidal thoughts

In the case of other clinical presentations, too, the doctor, whom you have reached via the drd app, can refuse the consultation due to your state of health and / or the symptoms described and suggest that you go to the medical emergency service, the ambulance or an inpatient facility.

Es liegt jedenfalls im Ermessen des Arztes zu beurteilen, ob er Sie im Wege der Videotelefonie beraten, Ihnen Medikamente verschreiben, Ihnen Verordnungen schreiben, Sie krankschreiben, zuweisen oder überweisen kann.

The quality of the medical consultation depends crucially on the quality of your patient record and on your cooperation. Remember to save all patient information and documents that you need for the video call with the doctor in your personal file and release them for the doctor before you start the video call with the doctor. The doctor can only view your patient file 24 hours after the video call with you. Thereafter, the doctor is only entitled to a copy of his/her own doctor's letter. This also applies if the contract with drd GmbH has been terminated in the meantime.

2. Patient and doctor identification

Please note that the doctor is obliged to identify you when you use the drd app. Therefore, always have your Austrian driver's license, Austrian ID card or your passport (hereinafter referred to as “photo ID”) ready, take a photo of it and load it into the health record of the drd app (patient record) before the consultation. You are obliged to save your photo ID in your patient file so that the doctor can examine it in detail. At the doctor's request, you are also obliged to hold your photo ID up to the camera so that the doctor can securely read it. Please note that in the event that you do not identify yourself, the doctor is entitled to break off the video call and report this to drd GmbH without this giving you any claims against the doctor and / or drd GmbH. As long as you do not identify yourself, you cannot use the drd app. Your payment obligations remain in place regardless.

You have the right to have the doctor identify him or herself by name. All doctors who can be reached via the drd app are obliged to provide their name and, if applicable, the details of their practice ready for you in a legible manner. If this is not the case, you are entitled to report this to drd GmbH and to request identification of the consulting doctor.

3. Remuneration and warranty

The value of the medical video consultation corresponds to the standard price of a one-time medical video consultation (this is the highest price for the one-time medical video consultation according to the price list of drd GmbH) and is shown in the price list of drd GmbH. On the basis of an agreement between the doctor and drd GmbH, drd GmbH is entitled to bill its own services and those of the doctors together and to offer you discounts and different payment models at its own discretion.

You cannot free yourself from your obligation to pay drd GmbH by making payment to the consulting doctor. Payment to drd GmbH is also owed if the doctor cannot give an assessment due to the clinical presentation or due to inadequate patient records and / or if you are advised to visit a doctor's practice in person and / or to contact an emergency doctor / ambulance .

You are entitled to statutory warranty claims against the doctors. Doctors have a right to improve their performance. You have the right to know the identity of the doctor treating you. Please contact the attending doctor directly with your claimsconcerns. dDrd GmbH is entitled to receive your complaints about the doctors and to forward them to the doctors. You can use the following email address for this: contact@drd.at.

If you have paid a lower price than the standard price for a one-time medical video consultation, this price is decisive for your possible claims against the doctor. As part of the subscription models, the standard price is always decisive. Nevertheless, in order to rule out unjustified enrichment, in the event of a price reduction or change of the contract with the doctor, you can get back from the doctor at most what you need for a medical video consultation plus any service provided by drd GmbH for the consultation for which you have paid. The calculation period is your three-month contract with drd GmbH. The total price - paid to drd GmbH in this period of time - is divided by the number of medical video consultations obtained in this period in order to arrive at the relevant value of a medical video consultation.

4. Liability

You acknowledge that the video consultation is particularly unsuitable for people who require immediate medical supervision or who require rapid medical intervention. The drd app is also not an emergency system.

The quality of the medical advice provided by the drd app depends crucially on the quality and content of your patient record as well as on your participation. The doctor is exempt from liability for force majeure, damage to property caused by slight negligence (provided that it does not affect his/her main contractual obligations), consequential damage caused by slight negligence and other indirect damage or lost profit. In addition, the doctor is exempt from any liability from the fact that s/he has advised you to contact an emergency doctor / ambulance or go to an inpatient facility, as well as from the fact that s/he refused to advise you to give you a sick note or to prescribe medication (especially of your choice) and / or to give your referrals. Whether the doctor does this is entirely at his/her medical discretion in accordance with the statutory provisions.

The doctor is not liable for the quality of the drd app and in particular not for the quality of your or his/her internet and / or telephone connection or for the errors that arise from any technical defect or for other reasons for which the doctor is not responsible such as having no or only partial access to your patient record and / or being unable to advise you. In particular, doctors are neither representatives nor vicarious agents of drd GmbH but act independently and on their own responsibility in their profession. 

Please note that the doctor of drd GmbH is obliged to report improper behaviour (e.g. insults) and abuse of use (e.g. improper attempts to obtain sick leave) to drd GmbH. You do not have any claims against the doctor from such a report by the doctor and the consequences thereof for your contractual relationship with drd GmbH. You agree to such a report in advance. If you should revoke this consent, the doctor is entitled to break off the video call with you without further claims on your part. In this case, your contract with drd GmbH can be terminated without notice. 

5. Evaluation

At the end of each video consultation, drd GmbH carries out an evaluation of the medical performance. The doctors hereby agree to both the evaluation and the disclosure of the evaluation to drd GmbH.

If you are a consumer with habitual residence in an EU country, you enjoy the protection of the mandatory provisions of the law of your country of residence. In this case you can assert claims in connection with these general terms and conditions, which result from consumer law standards, either in Vienna, Austria or in the EU member state in which you live.
