Through this program, medDigital developed medCrowd, a compliant messenger for health and care teams to work together more effectively and give the best care.
Health and care teams are using non-compliant messaging technologies, such as WhatsApp and Facebook Groups, to share confidential health and care information on a daily basis, despite clear guidance from NHS Digital and other professional bodies that only compliant technologies must be used.
Therefore, we developed medCrowd to protect confidential health and care information to the right standards.
Health and care teams can now join medCrowd and work together compliantly across different organisations all over the world.
medCrowd has the essential features that health and care teams need to work together more effectively and give the best care.
medCrowd protects confidential health and care information to the right standards.
The NHS has clear guidance that health and care teams should not use non-compliant messaging technologies (like WhatsApp) or social networks (like Facebook Groups) to share confidential health and care information.
So medCrowd is compliant with the NHS Commercial Third Party Information Governance, HIPAA, UK Data Protection Act and the European General Data Protection Regulation with ISO 27001 certification in progress.
