MedX is a secure messaging system for AHPRA registered Australian doctors, designed to allow rapid communication of confidential medical information between verified medical colleagues.
MedX enables end-to-end encryption of text messages and images, allowing doctors to communicate confidential medical information quickly to colleagues without compromising patient confidentiality. MedX allows doctors to rapidly find colleagues by name, speciality or location and communicate quickly without having to give out their mobile number.
NOTE: This app is only available for use by verified, AHPRA registered Australian doctors. To receive a registration invitation code, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or another doctor who is already registered with MedX.
