Secured App

Secured messaging apps are changing the way doctors and patients approach healthcare communication. The traditional methods of in-person visits and phone calls can be time-consuming and inefficient. This new technology is helping change that and change healthcare.

Here are a few ways secured messaging apps are impacting healthcare.

1. Patient Admissions More Efficient – Expedites the admission process

4. Message Delivery Confirmation – Confirmation that patients have received messages to ensure communication went through

7. Saves Staff Time – Nurses and other staff can save up to four hours per day by communicating via secured messaging apps

8. Forward Messages and Images – Easily pass along messages and images to doctors and other staff members who might require them
