Most clinicians will tell you about the benefits of using instant messaging to co-ordinate care and self-organise as a team. Recently though, the NHS has been trying to rein-in the use of WhatsApp and other consumer messaging apps.
There is concern about patient confidentiality and the risks of creating new ‘silos’ of information that is not recorded in official patient records. What’s needed is an alternative that ticks all the boxes with regards to security and compliance – a communications solution specifically designed for use by health and social care professionals.
So what are our options for co-ordinating care more effectively and meeting the essential requirements of security, scalability and interoperability?
