Healthcare communication patterns are trending towards smartphone use and further away from traditional methods such as pager-to-phone interactions. Mobile Encrypted Data Xchange or MEDX not only provides a secure alternative to these core processes, but also includes the core features desired by healthcare personnel to improve speed and efficiency for coordinating care.
MEDX is an advanced mobile communication system for healthcare. It follows the guidelines of HIPAA and the HITECH Act by using the latest standards in technical security, encryption and device safeguards. MEDX goes well beyond secure texting because of its rich features and integration capabilities with EMRs and PACS systems. It is also a carefully thought out bring your own device (BYOD) control your own data (CYOD) solution.
MEDX is different because it is designed by physicians, nurses and ancillary healthcare personnel. The purpose of MEDX is to securely exchange both user generated and non user generated protected health information (PHI) between all staff involved with handling PHI. This will not only improve clinical decision-making, but also enhance care workflows, ultimately resulting in cost savings and better patient outcomes. MEDX is a unique communication system because it can unite healthcare systems from within and also bridge outside systems together.
