The secure digital platform provides a way for medical professionals to share and discuss patient information with each other safely.
The clinical collaboration tool can be used by medical professionals in a variety of different settings who may need to communicate about patients. Healthcare professionals can quickly be added to the team directory on the mobile app to make them easy to find for contacting directly or adding to groups.
Siilo connects healthcare professionals to chat through text about patients over a secure app. Medical images and records can be added to the discussion for a seamless review of the entire case. Security is a priority of the tool and meets e-privacy, NHS, and GDPR standards.
Being able to discuss cases remotely, either one-on-one or in groups, can boost the productivity of medical professionals and allow more time with patients. It decreases the amount of time needed for specialists to review cases before treatment can be decided. It can enable decisions to be made with more confidence, especially with the transfer of images or records and by liaising easily with other clinicians.
In response to Covid-19, Siilo has implemented a rapid crisis response tool that’s free for medical professionals. The secure messaging system can be used to broadcast messages across entire clinics or be used to organize and update specific teams. Guidelines have been changing rapidly during the pandemic, so medical teams need an easy way to communicate and stay on the same page.
“I remember using pagers or bleeps during my various roles in hospital – It was the one constant thing that followed you…Well, including your stethoscope too. At the time, it seemed like such a normal and accepted process. It’s now much more clear that there are communication and operational efficiencies as well as improving clinical safety through secure messaging for healthcare.” – Dr Vinay Shankar
