NHS OR PRIVATE?
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 or discussion of a patient in an identifiable way. This is a very broad legal definition, and we've built Hospify partly because we think it's better to be safe than sorry when it comes to health data security.
IS IT FOR PATIENTS?
Initially Hospify is aimed at healthcare professionals. Once we have a significant professional user base and a solid mechanism to allow users to control who can contact them (we envisage this as something similar to Google+ circles or the invite mechanic on LinkedIn) then we would like to open it up to patients, as we believe there are clear benefits to be had by doing so.
CAN YOU SEND PICTURES?
The free trial of Hospify may not allow picture messaging. The app is in a very early stage, but we will be working hard to iron out glitches and add features, especially with regard to pictures, user search and directories, as we go. We're a start-up company so bear with us, but rest assured that we're dedicated to building an app that works for you!
