cdmNet Service Agreement for General Practitioners
You are required to enter this agreement where, as a care provider who is also a registered member of cdmNet, you seek to acquire certain features of the services available within cdmNet.
Specifically, Precedence agrees to provide the Chronic Disease Management Service (cdmNet), described on the web page cdm.net.au, to individual general practitioners who provide chronic disease management services to patients in your practice (Authorised General Practitioners), together with professional support staff working with those Authorised General Practitioners (other eligible persons), subject to payment by you on the terms set out below.
In order to access the cdmNet website, a General Practitioner must have a current Medicare provider number and must use this number when registering for the cdmNet service. Precedence accepts no responsibility in the event that you or an individual General Practitioner allows their Medicare provider number registration to lapse or provides an incorrect provider number to Precedence.
Precedence cannot and does not guarantee that information provided on the cdmNet website is correct, complete or up to date.
Precedence takes all reasonable measures to verify the identity of healthcare providers who register for the service but cannot guarantee the identity of the recipient. Except as required under Division 1 of Part 3-2 of the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), or as expressly set out in this Agreement, Precedence provides no warranty, guarantee or assurance, express or implied, in relation to the services supplied under this Agreement.
To the extent that the services are not of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption, and except in the case of a failure by Precedence to comply with a consumer guarantee under any of sections 51, 52 or 53 of the ACL, the liability of Precedence for a failure to comply with a consumer guarantee relevant to the service is limited to the supply of the service again or the payment of the cost to you of having the service supplied again.
Subject to the foregoing, (a) all guarantees, conditions and warranties which would otherwise be implied in this Agreement (by statute, general law or otherwise) are expressly excluded to the full extent permitted by law, (b) Precedence excludes all liability for special, indirect or consequential loss or damage sustained by you as a result of a breach of this Agreement, and (c) Precedence will not be accountable for any loss attributable to an interruption to the cdmNet caused by circumstances beyond its control, or any corruption of data or any errors or delays occurring for any reason.
You are responsible for payment of the charges specified below (Schedule of Fees) for all Authorised General Practitioners. For the avoidance of doubt, payments are determined by reference to the number of transactions enabled by cdmNet and attributable to the provider numbers of the Authorised General Practitioners.
Precedence will charge you monthly based on the transactions made in the previous month.
Precedence may engage a third party to act as its agent for the purpose of invoicing and collecting our fees. You consent to us disclosing such information (including confidential and personal information) to such a third party for the sole purpose of discharging this responsibility.
Payment can be made in accordance with the particulars set out below (Schedule of Fees).
The provisions of this Agreement can be varied by Precedence in its sole discretion. Members will be notified at login to cdmNet of any changes to the agreement.
This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of Victoria, Australia.
