Private directory for your team
A single place for all the numbers and bleeps that you need to connect with healthcare professionals working in your department and wider hospital.
The closed group is only available to those granted access meaning you can store mobile numbers and internal numbers which will not be available to the wider hospital.
Private codes & passwords
Induction can also store private codes and passcodes in the team group which are held locally and not shared.
This is useful for private codes/passcodes for locked cupboards holding equipment on the ward or the codes for office doors can be stored securely.
Share useful documents in your team
Create a healthcare specific workspace where you can share documents, procedure protocols, teaching timetables, rotas and other useful documents with your colleagues.
Team workspaces are closed groups where access is granted by email. The workspaces can be for small ward teams right through to departments or multi-specialty groups for specific overlaps such as orthoplastics or an oncology MDT.
Organise your documents in folders
Documents can be grouped into folders making the documents easy to search and access.
There also are review reminders set when uploading any document meaning that the admin of the group is notified when a review is scheduled ensuring documents are updated regularly.
Access granted by group admins
Access to the closed team workspaces is granted by the admin by email invitations or requests made from the team members.
Team members of the workspace can be given admin status by any current admin.
Communicate securely with your team
Messages can be sent securely with Induction’s instant messaging which was built specifically for healthcare. The security is high enough that you can discuss patient information.
- Messages are encrypted in transit and at rest.
- Messages delete after 30 days.
- Data is stored on servers based in the country your hospital is in.
Share images securely
Induction allows secure messaging of photos and other images you need to share. These images will be stored within Induction and will not be held on your device’s camera roll or link to your personal cloud backups for your phone.
Image sharing is particularly useful in image focused specialties where images can support remote clinical decision making.
Create groups for every team
Set up dynamic groups that can change based on who is on call and meet the needs of all the teams you are part of.
Made to feel just like other messaging apps you use, you can create and manage groups easily for your ward team or department through to your social groups too; knowing that Induction has security high enough to share patient identifiable details.
Purpose built for healthcare
Induction has a variety of features that make it easy to use and have confidence in for secure clinical messaging.
You can see who has read your messages in a group and you can reply directly to messages sent by colleagues to ensure communication is clear and transparent.
We take security seriously…
Security must be at the highest level in a secure instant messenger used in healthcare. With Induction, you can feel confident discussing patient identifiable information and sending messages securely.
