Inhealthcare’s technology platform is now integrated with NHS login, making it simple for patients to use its digital health services.

Inhealthcare’s secure platform delivers remote patient monitoring services to more than one million patients in the UK, with NHS login now available on its patient-facing applications.

NHS login was launched in 2018 by the NHS in order to make accessing services quick and secure. The first time patients use NHS login they’ll be required to prove their identity, so they can be matched to personal information. Subsequently, patients will have one username and password and be able to access websites with the NHS login button using it. This system of a single and secure point of access reduces the need for multiple logins and passwords.

Phil Nixon, NHS associate director of Citizen Health Technology, said: “NHS login gives patients a single, secure login for their health and care apps and websites, allowing them quick on-the-move access to the health information – just look for the NHS login button.”

In September 2020 NHS login introduced a new process to help new users check their ID in advance to minimise the number of failed applications. NHS login follows industry and government standards for security and identity. It only uses necessary data and digital health providers using the NHS login button must have completed an integration process. Additionally, background checks are performed on all suppliers.

Bryn Sage, chief executive of Inhealthcare, added that the company would “continue to invest in our technology to make our services as accessible as possible to patients and clinicians”.
