medCrowd recognised in NHS digital health report

It has been an exciting week for medCrowd, after we were hailed as a case study in a key paper on how new technology can renew the NHS launched by Alan Mak, MP and endorsed by the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

The report was launched at a lively event in Westminster earlier this week, based around the Fourth Industrial revolution with talks from political leaders and industry about how emerging technologies are reshaping the healthcare landscape, ultimately leading to a culture change that empowers patients.

medCrowd was recommended as the instant messenger for health and care that keeps everyone in touch while protecting confidential information, and was highlighted in coverage of the report in The Sunday Telegraph, The Sun on Sunday and Digital Health magazine.

The current lack of user-friendly, compliant messaging technology for health and care workers is causing inefficiencies which jeopardise patient outcomes. At medCrowd, we’ve been working hard to develop cutting-edge technology to facilitate conversations, creating a world where everyone receives the best care.

“Improving the way patients and health and care teams communicate is at the core of what we do. We are delighted that medCrowd has been recognised as a technology to propel the NHS into the future.” – Dr Felix Jackson, Founder and Medical Director of medCrowd.
