pMD Connects Medical Community with HIPAA-Compliant Secure Text Messaging
pMD, the innovation leader in physician communication and mobile charge capture, has released enhancements to its secure text messaging software that will unify medical communities on a single secure messaging system. pMD charge capture and secure messaging users can invite anyone to the secure messaging system easily, directly, and at no additional cost. The HIPAA-compliant text messaging app allows health care professionals to communicate easily and securely around patient care.

“Our practice has been trying to get our community on the same secure text messaging system for a long time because we need to share PHI with other physicians to coordinate patient care,” said Dr. Jeremy Gitomer with Kidney and Hypertension Clinic of Alaska. “When a patient is discharged from the hospital, we let their primary care physician know that they are leaving and we include their health information. pMD’s secure text messaging ensures patient updates are received right away and that the message goes to the right person. pMD’s capability to securely and easily connect our community is very exciting.”

HIPAA-Compliant Secure Text Messaging App Improves Care Coordination

In an ongoing commitment to improve communication and coordination around patient care, pMD developed the ability for its customers to invite others outside of their practice to the secure text messaging system. pMD Messaging users can build and easily access verified and reliable lists of their associated health care colleagues. The on-the-go invite functionality allows all of the providers in a care team to exchange sensitive information at any time and with anyone.

“There are enormous barriers to communication around patient care within the health care industry,” said pMD CEO, Philippe d’Offay. “Our secure text messaging platform makes it easier for medical communities to connect about their patients, compliantly and seamlessly. Caregivers can communicate with one another regardless of which health care organization or system they are affiliated.”

pMD’s secure messaging platform also supports group messaging, read receipts, and encrypted photo attachments for collaboration across an entire care team. The patent-pending message reminder system ensures that users never miss a message. pMD Messaging gives health care professionals a trusted messaging system where they can safely and instantly communicate to improve patient care. pMD Messaging is available for iOS, Android, and web users.
