Communication in healthcare is a challenge. Doctors still carry around pagers and play phone tag with each other. Patients rarely like calling their doctors and practices, leaving a voicemail, and waiting for a call back.
We set out to simplify communication for healthcare by making it as easy as texting.
OhMD is a simple HIPAA compliant texting platform that allows doctors to securely text message with other healthcare professionals, doctors, patients and care teams. Text messaging with OhMD allows physicians to save time throughout their busy days, decrease phone tag and voicemails, and improve the timeliness of care coordination.
OhMD makes communication between patients and their care teams as easy as sending and receiving a text message. It is a free app for all patients to use with their doctors and care teams in participating practices and hospitals.
How to use OhMD (for Doctors):
Once you create an account, you can invite anyone to download OhMD so you can use it to communicate. This includes patients and colleagues. If you want to implement it across a practice or organization, we offer a ton of flexibility to allow you to build out care teams, message routing, and more. Once you get going, it's as easy as texting.
How to use OhMD (for Patients):
Ever feel like it would be so much easier if you could just send a message to your practice or doctor? Maybe a quick question about a rash or a medication question? OhMD looks and feels just like texting, and makes being a patient so much easier. Download and sign up for OhMD and then find your provider. Once you do that, you'll be texting in no time.
