Hospify is the first affordable mobile messaging app compliant for health use by clinicians and patients across the UK and EU.
WHAT IS HOSPIFY?
Hospify is a secure mobile messaging and contact data service for healthcare professionals & patients in the UK and EU. Hospify provides users with the simplicity and power of consumer messaging solutions, but unlike them ensures that all communication stays within UK & EU legislative guidelines for patient confidentiality and data protection.
why is it needed?
1.5m people work in the NHS; nearly 30m work in healthcare across the whole EU (that's nearly 10% of the entire workforce!). But every day they are let down by inefficient, out-dated hospital communications systems that waste their time and resources and put lives at risk, despite the fact that these days most doctors and nurses carry smartphones.
Frustrated healthcare professionals are turning to consumer messaging apps to solve the problem. But consumer solutions breach EU regulations for health data – the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has already fined the NHS £1.3m for data breaches, and it hasn’t even started on messaging compliance. Doing nothing is going to get very expensive...
DID YOU KNOW...?
That if you're running a GP practice, a private health practice or a health trust then by law from 2018 you must publicly report any data breaches that occur in your business - and that 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.
