These terms and conditions (the “Agreement”) govern that certain statement of work, purchase order, or work order (the “SOW”) between you (“Client”) and Tabula Rasa HealthCare Group, Inc. (“TRHC”). This Agreement is a legally enforceable contract between Client and TRHC. TRHC may modify this Agreement or any additional terms that may apply to the SOW by posting such modifications on this page.

2. Subcontractors. TRHC shall have the right to subcontract the Services to its affiliates. To the extent that any Services hereunder are performed by TRHC subcontractors or agents, TRHC shall ensure that the activities of such subcontractors or agents are in compliance with TRHC’s obligations under this Agreement.
3. Payment Terms. Unless otherwise set forth in the SOW, Client shall pay all TRHC invoices within 30 days of receipt. TRHC may charge interest to Client on any overdue invoice at a rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount allowable by law, whichever is less.
4. Termination. This Agreement and any SOW may be terminated by TRHC for convenience upon ninety (90) days’ prior written notice to Client. Either Party may terminate this Agreement for a material breach by the other Party of any provision of this Agreement if the breach is not cured within sixty (60) days of the delivery of written notice by the non-breaching Party (except such cure period shall be thirty (30) days for failure to pay undisputed invoices by the due date, or such longer time as specified in the notice). The notice shall identify the breach and the necessary actions to remedy the breach.
5. Compliance with Laws. The Parties shall comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and rules, the Medicare/Medicaid Addendum attached hereto, as well as any other requirements that may be imposed by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services or another applicable government authority including, without limitation, HIPAA, HITECH, and state and federal laws designed to prevent fraud waste and abuse such as the Federal False Claims Act and the Federal Anti-Kickback Statute.
6. System Integrity. The Parties acknowledge and agree the safety and success of certain of the Services may involve the aggregation of multiple clinical, scientific, and technological components. The Parties further acknowledge and agree when components of certain Services are removed from a product or Service offering, the integrity of certain Services is put at risk and, accordingly, the health and welfare of Client participants receiving certain Services delivered through TRHC’s system are also put at risk. Accordingly, Client agrees it shall not, in any way, change the array of Services or modify the workflows of TRHC hereunder without the express, advance written approval of TRHC.
(i) Indemnification by TRHC. TRHC shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Client and its affiliates, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, the “Client Indemnitees”) from and against any and all damages, liabilities, losses, costs and expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever, including, without limitation, reasonable attorney’s fees (collectively, “Losses”), incurred by any Client Indemnitee in connection with any claim, demand, action or proceeding brought by a third party (each, a “Claim”) arising from (a) the gross negligence, willful misconduct or fraud by TRHC, or (b) infringement of third party intellectual property rights in connection with the performance of the Services; provided, however, that TRHC shall have no obligation to indemnify any Client Indemnitee for Losses pursuant to this Section to the extent that such Losses arise from (1) the negligence, willful misconduct or fraud by Client or any Client Indemnitee or (2) a breach of any of Client’s obligations, covenants, representations or warranties under this Agreement.
(ii) Indemnification by Client. Client shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless TRHC and its affiliates, and each of their respective directors, officers, employees and agents (collectively, the “TRHC Indemnitees”) from and against any and all Losses incurred by any TRHC Indemnitee in connection with any Claim arising from (a) the provision of Services by TRHC in compliance with the terms of this Agreement, (b) the negligence, willful misconduct or fraud by Client or any Client Indemnitee, or (c) a breach of any of Client’s obligations, covenants, representations or warranties under this Agreement; provided, however, that Client shall have no obligation to indemnify any TRHC Indemnitee for Losses pursuant to this Section to the extent that such Losses arise from (1) the gross negligence, willful misconduct or fraud by TRHC, or (2) a breach of any of TRHC’s obligations, covenants, representations or warranties under this Agreement.
(iii) Indemnification Procedure.
a. The Party seeking indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”), agrees to notify the Party against whom indemnification is sought (the “Indemnifying Party”) in writing within thirty (30) days of receipt of notice of any Claim in respect of which indemnity may be sought under such section, which notice shall assert such indemnification claim and set forth in reasonable detail the basis for indemnification (such notice, the “Indemnification Notice”). The failure to so notify the Indemnifying Party shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations hereunder, except to the extent such failure shall have adversely prejudiced the Indemnifying Party.
b. The Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to participate in the defense of any Claim and, subject to the Indemnifying Party’s delivery of written notice thereof to the Indemnified Party within thirty (30) days after the Indemnifying Party’s receipt of the Indemnification Notice, or within such shorter period as may be required to timely respond to such Claim, shall be entitled to control and appoint lead counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Indemnified Party for such defense, in each case at its own expense. If the Indemnifying Party does not assume control of such defense, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to control such defense at the Indemnifying Party’s reasonable expense. The party not controlling such defense may participate therein at its own expense; provided that (i) if the Indemnifying Party assumes control of such defense and the Indemnified Party reasonably concludes, based on advice from counsel, that the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party have conflicting interests with respect to such Claim, the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel to the Indemnified Party solely in connection therewith shall be considered Losses for purposes of this Agreement and (ii) in no event shall the Indemnifying Party be responsible for the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for all Indemnified Parties. The Party controlling the defense shall keep the other Party advised of the status of such Claim and the defense thereof and shall consider recommendations made by the other Party with respect thereto. Each Party shall cooperate, and cause their respective affiliates to cooperate, in the defense or prosecution of any Claim and shall furnish or cause to be furnished such records, information and testimony, and attend such conferences, discovery proceedings, hearings, trials or appeals, as may be reasonably requested in connection therewith.
c. The Indemnified Party shall not agree to any settlement of a Claim without the prior written consent of the Indemnifying Party. The Indemnifying Party shall obtain the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party before entering into any settlement of such Claim if the settlement does not release the Indemnified Party and its affiliates from all liabilities and obligations with respect to such Claim or the settlement imposes injunctive or other equitable relief against the Indemnified Party or any of its affiliates or involves an admission of fault or wrongdoing by an Indemnified Party.
8. Warranty; Disclaimer of Warranty. TRHC represents and warrants that (i) the Services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike manner and conform to any applicable specifications set forth in an SOW, (ii) it will comply with all applicable laws rules and regulations in connection with the performance of the Services. Client represents and warrants that it will comply with all applicable laws rules and regulations in connection with the receipt of the Services and use of any deliverables. EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES STATED HEREIN, TRHC DISCLAIMS ALL EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
9. Limitation of Liability. Neither party shall be liable to the other party for any incidental, indirect, consequential, punitive or special damages, including lost profits, arising out of this agreement with respect to a party’s performance or non-performance of this Agreement; provided, however, the foregoing limitation of liability shall not limit in any way a party’s indemnification obligations. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, TRHC’s maximum liability under this Agreement shall be limited to the aggregate amount paid by Client to TRHC under this Agreement during the twelve (12) month period immediately preceding the date of the event occurred that gave rise to the liability.

Definition of Confidential Information: For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” shall mean (i) all information and data relating to the other Party or its business (including, without limitation, its businesses, operations, plans, personnel, finances, products and services) that is disclosed by or on behalf of such Party to the other Party (or its designee), either orally, electronically, visually or in writing in connection with this Agreement; (ii) all copies of such information; and (iii) the terms of this Agreement. Confidential Information shall not include Protected Health Information (as defined below), which shall be governed by the Parties’ Business Associate Agreement.
Definition of Highly Confidential Information: The term “Highly Confidential Information” shall mean all documents, data and information exchanged, both written and oral and provided in any medium which contains, discusses, or pertains to pricing data and strategies (including managed care pricing), contracts or contract terms, competitively sensitive business development initiatives and marketing strategies, and cost, price and actuarial data and analyses and shall include, without limitation, profit margins, price lists, provider rates and supply terms, customer lists, pricing plans, and competitively sensitive strategic, promotional, or advertising plans.
Exclusions: Confidential Information and Highly Confidential Information shall not include information (as demonstrated by contemporaneous documentation) that: (i) was known by the receiving Party prior to its receipt from the disclosing Party, without obligation of confidentiality; (ii) is or becomes public knowledge, other than through acts or omissions in breach of a confidentiality obligation; (iii) is developed by the receiving Party independently of the Confidential Information or Highly Confidential Information received from the other Party hereunder; or (iv) is lawfully obtained by the receiving Party without any restriction on use and disclosure from sources independent of the other Party who have a lawful right to disclose such information without restriction.
Obligations: Unless otherwise expressly permitted by this Agreement, or otherwise agreed to in writing by the disclosing Party, the receiving Party shall keep confidential and shall not publish or otherwise disclose or use for any purpose any Confidential Information or Highly Confidential Information of the disclosing party. The receiving Party shall notify the disclosing Party promptly upon discovery of any unauthorized use or disclosure of Confidential Information or Highly Confidential Information of the disclosing Party. These confidentiality obligations shall survive the expiration or any earlier termination of this Agreement.
Use and Disclosure of Highly Confidential Information: Each of the Parties agrees that Highly Confidential Information shall be used and disclosed only on a need to know basis and only after the respective Party, with assistance from counsel, establishes an appropriate method for disclosure of Highly Confidential Information, including identification of the persons in a Party’s organization to whom disclosure of Highly Confidential Information will be made. Each Party further agrees that under no circumstances shall any Highly Confidential Information be disclosed to any other person in its respective organization with direct responsibility for pricing, marketing, sales, contracting with third parties, business development or promotional activities. The purpose and intent of this section is to prevent the disclosure of information that may be competitively sensitive to any person affiliated with a Party with responsibility for pricing or promoting any service line or business which may be deemed to be included within the same relevant market for antitrust law purposes as the engagement covered by this Agreement. Highly Confidential Information shall otherwise be treated in the same manner as other Confidential Information hereunder and shall be subject to the additional provisions of these confidentiality obligations.
Authorized Uses and Disclosures: Notwithstanding the foregoing, the receiving Party may use and disclose Confidential Information as follows:
a. to fulfill its obligations under this Agreement;
b. to provide to lawyers, tax advisors, and government agents for business operational purposes; provided however, that such Party shall take all reasonable steps to limit the disclosure of the Confidential Information outside such persons and to otherwise maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information;
c. if required by applicable law, rule, or regulation (including without limitation to comply with the order of a governmental agency or a court of competent jurisdiction); provided, however, that such Party shall, to the extent permitted by law, promptly provide written notice thereof to the disclosing Party, consult with the disclosing Party with respect to such disclosure and provide the disclosing Party a reasonable opportunity to object to any such disclosure or to seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy.
Return of Confidential Information. At the disclosing Party’s written request, the receiving Party shall either (at the disclosing Party’s option) return all electronic and documentary Confidential Information and Highly Confidential Information of the disclosing Party that is in the possession of the receiving Party or destroy all of such Confidential Information and Highly Confidential Information, including any copies thereof. At the disclosing Party’s request, the receiving Party shall certify to its compliance with this Section. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the receiving Party may retain one copy of the disclosing Party’s Confidential Information and Highly Confidential Information disclosed to the receiving Party hereunder for archival purposes (and for no other use), subject to the ongoing obligation to maintain the confidentiality of such information in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
Remedy. Each Party acknowledges that the unauthorized disclosure or use of the other Party’s Confidential Information or Highly Confidential Information may cause irreparable harm for which damages at law may not be an adequate remedy. Accordingly, the disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek injunctive relief to enforce the provisions of this Agreement prohibiting disclosure of its Confidential Information and/or Highly Confidential Information or use thereof in a court of competent jurisdiction in addition to seeking any and all other remedies available to the disclosing Party under this Agreement, at law or in equity.
12. Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of New Jersey.
13. Arbitration. If there is any dispute between the Parties, either Party may initiate “meet and confer” process by written notice to the other Party of the existence and nature of the dispute (“Meet and Confer Notice”). Except as otherwise agreed by the Parties, the Parties shall meet and confer in good faith within fifteen (15) days of the Meet and Confer Notice to resolve any disputes or disagreements between them. Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this Agreement that has not been resolved by means of the meet and confer process within thirty (30) days of the Meet and Confer Notice (or such longer time as the Parties shall agree on) shall be finally settled by arbitration under the rules of the American Health Lawyers Association (“AHLA”) Dispute Resolution Service utilizing one (1) arbitrator who shall be chosen by mutual agreement of the Parties from a list of arbitrators maintained by the AHLA. Arbitration shall be heard in Burlington County, New Jersey. The arbitration award shall include written findings of fact, a summary of the evidence and reasons underlying the decision and conclusions of law. The arbitration proceedings and arbitration award shall be maintained by the Parties as strictly confidential, except as is otherwise required by court order or as is necessary to confirm, vacate or enforce the award and for disclosure in confidence to the Parties’ respective attorneys, tax advisors and senior management. The arbitrator shall have the power to award equitable relief, including specific performance of the terms and conditions of the Agreement and/or injunctive relief. In all cases submitted to arbitration, the Parties agree to share equally the administrative fee as well as the arbitrator’s fee, if any, unless otherwise assessed by the arbitrator. Nothing in this Section shall be interpreted as preventing either Party from seeking equitable relief from a court of competent jurisdiction against the other Party at any time.
14. Publicity. Following the execution of any applicable SOW under this Agreement, TRHC may issue a press release regarding this Agreement and its general terms, including the use of the name of Client. TRHC may file such press release with the SEC.
15. Amendment. This Agreement may be modified by TRHC by posting an updated version of this Agreement to this page.

21. Independent Contractor. No provision of this Agreement is intended to create nor shall be deemed or construed to create any relationship between the Parties other than that of independent contractors contracting with each other hereunder solely for the purpose of effecting the provisions of this Agreement. Neither of the Parties, nor any of their respective employees or agents, shall be construed to be the agent, employee or representative of the other, nor will either Party have an express or implied right of authority to assume or create any obligation or responsibility on behalf of or in the name of the other Party.

TRHC shall maintain all personally identifiable aspects of all Client Data as confidential pursuant to this Agreement. All third parties authorized by TRHC which may have access to Client Data shall be under obligations of confidentiality to maintain such data as confidential pursuant to this Agreement. Client agrees to and does hereby grant to TRHC a non-exclusive irrevocable, perpetual, transferrable, fully paid worldwide right and license to gather, assemble, compile, modify, reproduce, and perform the Client Data and to display, release, use, disclose, commercialize, assign, convey, sell, lease, license or transfer any de-identified Client Data, in whole or in part, in any manner, and for any purpose whatsoever, and to have or authorize others to do so.
(ii) Client Obligations on Client Data. Client agrees to comply with all applicable confidentiality and security laws and requirements, including but not limited to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and its regulations, and state and federal security breach notification laws and regulations and shall be responsible for obtaining any and all required consents or authorizations from the patients prior to TRHC receiving any Client Data.
(iv) Outcomes Collection and Collaboration. At the request of TRHC, Client shall cooperate and collaborate with TRHC in the collection and assessment of outcomes data necessary to demonstrate the efficacy and value of the Services.
24. Force Majeure. If any Party shall be delayed or hindered in or prevented from the performance of any act required hereunder by reason of strike, lockouts, labor troubles, restrictive governmental or judicial orders or decrees, riots, insurrection, war, acts of God, inclement weather or other reason or cause reasonably beyond such Party’s control (a “Force Majeure Event”), then performance of such act shall be excused for the duration of such Force Majeure Event. The Party that is delayed in, hindered in or prevented from performing hereunder as a result of the Force Majeure Event (the “Force Majeure Party”) shall provide notice to the other Party of the commencement and termination of the Force Majeure Event. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Force Majeure Party shall take reasonable, diligent efforts to mitigate or remove the condition constituting such Force Majeure Event or to avoid its effects so as to resume performance as soon as practicable, and performance shall not be excused or extended to the extent that the Force Majeure Party reasonably could have mitigated or removed the condition to allow continued performance hereunder. If the suspension of performance continues for sixty (60) days after the date of the occurrence of the Force Majeure Event, and the failure to perform by the Force Majeure Party would constitute a material breach of this Agreement in the absence of such Force Majeure Event, then the other Party shall have the right to terminate this Agreement, in which case the Force Majeure Party shall not have any liability to such other Party for such suspension of performance as a result of the Force Majeure Event.
