The Inside Out Care website, application and technology platform (collectively, the “Inside Out Care Platform” or “Platform”) enables individual patients and their personal representatives to have access to and interact with relevant health care information, educational materials and community forums with the goal of improving the overall patient experience. Once such a person has registered for an account on the Inside Out Care Platform, such person is an “Inside Out Care Patient.”
The Platform also enables a hospital health care providers (“Hospital Health Care Providers”) to make available relevant health and health services-related checklists, articles and other information. In addition, Hospital Health Care Providers can use the Platform to 1) monitor the engagement of individual Inside Out Care Patients with the content made available by such Hospital Health Care Provider or others at the hospital where they are on staff (a "Participating Hospital") (e.g., viewing a patient’s progress on tasks included on a checklist), and 2) submit or modify information relevant to applicable Inside Out Care Patients’ use of the Services (e.g., adding tasks to an individual patient’s checklist, or identifying specific tasks as not being applicable to that patient).
If you are a Hospital Health Care Provider, you may establish a Hospital Health Care Provider account on the Inside Out Platform as described in Section 2 below.
Hospital Health Care Providers, Inside Out Care Patients and other authorized users (collectively, the “Inside Out Care Community”) may also be able to participate in community forums enabled by the Platform to facilitate more generalized information sharing and discussion. Your participation in such community forums is subject to these Terms.
We will be developing the Platform and Services over time. We may introduce new features, remove features or restrict access to parts of the Platform or Services. We would like to give you notice whenever we make a material change to the Platform or Services, but this may not always be practical. You agree that we will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification or termination of the Platform or Services, in whole or in part.

Provisions that, by their nature, should survive termination of these Terms shall survive termination. By way of example, all of the following will survive termination: our disclaimers; any limitations on our liability; terms regarding ownership and intellectual property rights; indemnity obligations; and terms regarding disputes between us.
Your Account is non-transferable. You may not assign these Terms or your rights to the Services to any party.
These Terms and the relationship between you and us are governed by the laws of the state of Washington, without regard to its conflict of law provisions, and all claims and disputes arising out of these Terms or the Services shall be brought exclusively in the courts located in King County, Washington or the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington located in Seattle.
