App Store Description

Med-elink is a secure communication platform for medical professionals. It allows you to communicate safely and securely with your private medical network for support and advice on the go.

Communication is at the heart of great medicine; it’s how we understand, teach, and learn. But because we all use our mobile phones, how we communicate with colleagues now faces huge security risks. Why risk it when you can have access to your own secure medical network?

Med-elink is a profoundly intuitive app that allows you to use your phone in the same way you always have, but safely and securely. With a range of features, you can easily build cases and add images, use in-app instant messaging, obtain patient consent and instantly share these cases with colleagues for support and advice.

• Beyond Secure •
If you’re currently using a non-secure, open platform like SMS or email to send patient information to colleagues, you are putting yourself and your patients at risk of a security breach. Med-elink has been built in alignment with HIPAA health security standards and uses 256-bit encryption to ensure complete confidentiality. We know security needs to be double-bolted for your peace of mind. That’s why Med-elink has additional security features, such as a secure doctor-verification system so you can be sure you’re only communicating with verified medical professionals.

• Photos that stay captured •
It’s just about impossible to keep track of all your photos these days; before you know it, they’re uploaded to the cloud. You could accidentally leave your phone unlocked and lose privacy instantaneously. But with Med-elink, photos stay securely within the app and never transfer onto your camera roll or accidentally end up in the public domain.

• Built-in image augmentation • Sometimes sharing an image is critical to patient care. Med-elink includes high-definition image capture and comes with annotation and de-identification tools. It’s an additional step towards patient confidentiality and support between clinicians.

• Consent •
Med-elink allows you to obtain patient and third-party consent on the spot through quick, on-screen signing.

• Messaging •
Texting colleagues is a convenient and easy way to obtain case advice and peer consultation, but it comes at great risk of a confidentiality breach. With Med-elink, you can use in-case instant messaging, confident that your patient information is safe and protected.

• Cases •
Med-elink works like you do, in patient cases. You can keep all your case information and images organised for quick and easy access.

• Create trusted groups •
With bespoke permissions, Med-elink lets you share only what you want, with only whom you want. You can build specific teams around cases or just create a favourite group for your trusted colleagues.

• Your medical library •
Sometimes, it would be really helpful to remember just how you dealt with that unusual case that came through a couple of years back, or just share a bit of general knowledge. With all communications tagged to a unique case file number, and each keyword being searchable, Med-elink becomes your personal medical library that gets smarter the more you use it.

Med-elink is the brainchild of a full-time, rural GP who was frustrated with the limited options available to communicate and consult with his metropolitan colleagues. He believed that technology should help make medicine better and not get in the way of patient access to the right care. Our purpose is to harness the power of 21st-century communications to connect the medical community for the collective good.

Medicine isn’t just a profession — it’s a community. Through Med-elink, you can now connect to your private medical network securely.

Good medicine is shared knowledge. Build yours on Med-elink now.

Med-elink. It’s your medical network.
