Compliant Health Messaging for Everyone

Still risking data breach by using WhatsApp? Time to switch to Hospify, the secure mobile messaging app that's free to use and compliant for use in healthcare by professionals and patients across the UK and EU.



Hospify is a compliant & secure mobile messaging  service for healthcare professionals & patients that provides the simplicity and convenience of consumer messaging solutions while ensuring that all communication stays within UK & EU legislative guidelines for patient confidentiality and data protection. 


Basic text messaging to individuals and small groups is currently free in Hospify, and we plan to keep it that way! But our service does have to pay for itself (without selling ads!), so we will soon be adding a premium subscription charge for power users, payable through the app stores and priced in line with other apps.


Picture messaging is coming! We're testing it at the moment and it should be live in the app by the end of 2017, along with a few other improvements - including a major redesign - that we're sure you will like, and which will make the app even better and even easier to use. 



Ill-served by inefficient, out-dated communication systems based on landlines and bleepers, up to 89% of UK doctors now use consumer messaging services like WhatsApp, Messenger, Skype, Snapchat or Telegram to supplement communication. These services might be encrypted but they are not compliant with NHS Information Governance rules or new healthcare data protection legislation such as the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As a result, using them to send patient identifiable information can automatically qualify as a data breach.

If you're running a GP practice, a private health practice or a health trust, from May 25th 2018 you must publicly report any data breaches that occur in your business - and you can be fined up to 4% of your annual turnover for each breach! It will not take many such breaches to destroy your financial viability... and this is why we've created Hospify. 

Don't take our word for it. Read what the press has to say about it here and here.

Download Hospify now - for free!

To download Hospify to your Apple or Android device just click on one of the buttons below. Once you've registered and completed the email confirmation, go to Add Contacts and search for the name of a friend or colleague to add them to your personal directory. Then message them just as you would with WhatsApp, Messenger or SMS - except for that fact that you'll be compliant with UK and EU health care data protection regulations.



Hospify is for any health professional or patient, public or private, who needs to use a mobile device to communicate in a way that might involve transmission of patient identifiable data.  One of the great advantages of Hospify over email, phone or social media is that users can control who can contact them without compromising their personal privacy.


To ensure data security and confidentiality Hospify is pioneering a model we call minimum viable data. All your conversations are end-to-end encrypted, and then deleted from our servers within 72 hours of delivery. So your messages are stored on your device and nowhere else. The data you send and receive are your responsibility, and yours to control.

desktop version?

Hospify is currently available for both Android and Apple mobile devices, as well as Android-enabled Blackberries. Early next year we will be providing a desktop version, to make the service easier to use in an administrative capacity. Because we don't store your data in the cloud, each device on Hospify has its own dedicated account.
