The 1Call division of Amtelco announced that the miSecureMessages App for Apple devices has been updated and is available for download on the iTunes® store. The app sends encrypted messages to smartphones and mobile devices and allows for secure two-way communications, maintaining Protected Health Information (PHI). It saves time for clinicians and patients, helping organizations meet HIPAA and HITECH regulations, while also providing better patient care. With Apps available for the Apple iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, as well as for Android and BlackBerry® devices, it is an ideal solution for replacing pagers.
A few of the new enhancements include giving users faster access to replying, forwarding, deleting, or completing a message or message thread. The forward button is also now available on the view message screen, saving time for users. In addition, phone numbers, email addresses, and street addresses now appear as clickable links in the message body, message subject, and the message thread pages, speeding response times.
