The PAN Foundation Portal (hereinafter, the "Portal") is accessible only to registered users (referred herein as "you" and "your") and is operated by Patient Access Network Foundation ("PAN").

Purpose of the Portal

Should you come across any patient information about individuals who are not your customers, please do not read, use or disclose the information and immediately notify PAN at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org so that the issue may be corrected.

Secure messaging to and from counselors with patient-specific information; and
The ability for you and your staff to which you have delegated authorization to act as your agent to attach your signature to an online application.
The material on this Portal should not be regarded as an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any products or services. No director, employee, agent or representative of PAN or any of its affiliated companies are engaged in rendering medical advice, diagnosis, treatment or other medical services that in any way create a physician-patient relationship through this Portal or any other website operated by or on behalf of PAN.

You agree to exercise due care in protecting those login credentials, to refrain from sharing your user credentials with third parties other than agents you authorize to act on your behalf, and that you are responsible for all transactions and other activities performed using your login credentials.
If you become aware that a third party is misusing your login credentials, you agree to notify PAN immediately and to remedy the situation as reasonably requested by PAN. If, at any time, you wish to terminate your registration you must provide a written notice to PAN.
