Consulting colleagues quickly and securely is extremely important in the medical field. Ordinary texting is fast and easy. It's also a HIPAA-violation. Now, use HipaaChat to send quick texts, patient info, reports, images or anything else. Need to identify a situation and take action? Be in two places at once, because HipaaChat works like a videophone for telemedicine. Speedy, safe, secure & IT-approved! HIPAA-compliant security and privacy.

HipaaChat was built from the ground-up to enable you to be HIPAA-compliant. It is mapped to every HIPAA-regulation, including all Administrative, Technical and Physical Safeguards. It’s expertly encrypted and secure because it uses the same advanced algorithms as the U.S. Department of Defense.

You’ll protect your patients by giving them better, faster, more specialized care because HipaaChat allows you to instantly identify a situation, make decisions, and start orders. You’ll protect your patients from long transfers or wait times. Protect your patients from misdiagnoses, errors and frustration. Save time. And by protecting your patients and protecting their privacy, you protect your practice from liability. All from a simple app on your iPhone or iPad. Check out the following features of this secure medical messaging iPhone app:

Don’t wanna type? Try our walkie-talkie!

Just hold the button, you speak, they hear you. HipaaChat’s walkie-talkie feature is even faster than texting because who wants to type all those complex medical words? And if someone needs to refer back to your voice message, they can play it over and over again.

Know when your colleagues read – or even received – your message because HipaaChat tells you. And HipaaChat shows you when someone’s in the middle of a reply, so your conversation can continue naturally. Send messages to one person or send group messages to an entire care team – along with photos and videos. When someone replies, everyone sees it.
