The need to go through normal, SLOW hospital channels is over. Physicians will now be able to immediately exchange messages with their colleagues in a secure manner, no matter where they work.

  • Secure Communication: PetalMD’s secure connection based on encrypted data ensures the confidentiality of all messages and information exchanged.

The pain point of healthcare communication

Even in today’s technological world, communication in healthcare is lengthy and far from efficient. Exchanging patient information securely between physicians working in the same hospital can take time. Communicating with physicians from another establishment takes even longer.

When two physicians from different hospitals need to communicate directly or transfer patient files, the delay is often too long to be of value. The need to communicate in real time is essential, but the burden of distance puts a halt to many exchanges.

Direct communication can sometimes be the difference between life and death. Literally. Instant communication allows physicians to exchange thoughts, information and important details concerning their patients in the blink of an eye. Eliminating intermediaries and privacy risks with a secure network increases efficiency immensely.

In an industry where security and time are of the essence, cloud-based solutions are the answer. They are available, essential, and gaining traction. The time to break healthcare communication barriers has arrived.
