Hospify - Trusted Healthcare Messaging for Everyone
Ill-served by inefficient, outdated communication, over 600,000 NHS professionals are currently using consumer messaging services like WhatsApp to supplement communication. But the arrival of GDPR regulations in May 2018 rendered healthcare institutions whose employees use these consumer tools to handle patient identifiable data liable for fines of up to 4 per cent of their annual turnover.
Hospify is a GDPR and NHS IG-compliant messaging service designed to remove this liability in the UK and in Europe. Available for free in the Apple and Android app stores, Hospify puts a simple, affordable solution directly into the hands of healthcare professionals and patients.
Hospify is a simple & secure way of sharing sensitive & confidential health information between individuals, teams & communities.
Our free messaging app can be downloaded from the app stores; the team messaging platform (the Hospify Hub and Web App) can be purchased by individuals or institutions who have a valid need to handle patient identifiable data (PID).
Together, the Hospify Mobile App, Hub & Web App combine the best of consumer tools like WhatsApp, LinkedIn and Slack, in a manner that’s appropriate for use in health.
The free version of Hospify is available right now and is in daily use at over 200 clinical sites around the country including London North West University Healthcare Trust, County Durham and Darlington, University Hospitals North Midlands, Frimley Park and Lincolnshire Community NHS Trust. It was the first and is so far the only general messaging app to be approved by the NHS Apps Library for use by both patients and clinicians,
Hospify is also backed by Innovate UK, Wayra Velocity Health (in partnership with Telefonica and MSD Pharmaceutical), Kent Surrey Sussex AHSN and the UNISON and Managers in Partnership Unions.
