Share and sync messages across devices

Message for Healthcare allows you to share texts, photos, videos and voice messages on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Use your camera and microphone to take pictures and dictate messages. Messages can sync to all of your iOS devices and are retained until you delete them.

Find team members within your facility

Using Apple iBeacon, Location Services and Maps, Message for Healthcare allows you to search and find team members’ locations within the medical facility. Access the staff directory to search for and share contacts.

Prioritize messages and alerts

Set alerts to sound a tone and/or vibrate just as you do for other iOS apps. Get alerted to new or urgent messages based on tags or filters set by you or your organization. Filter messages by sender or content to respond more quickly to emergencies and appointments, and avoid wasting time looking for important data. IT analysts can report on usage, response time and other metrics.

Familiar, easy to use iOS interface

The app functions like iMessage, Mail and similar iOS apps – including swipe left to delete. Use Touch ID to login. Unread messages appear at the top of the Inbox, followed by previously viewed messages. Note urgent messages and compose new ones with quick taps.

Reliable 24/7 support and service

Through its service plan, IBM and Apple have teamed up to provide you with the most comprehensive support available. It includes 24/7 phone support from Apple and next-business-day on-site service from IBM. Whether buying or leasing devices, the IBM flexible procurement model enables you to go from procurement to deployment quickly. You can also manage all your iOS devices from a single portal and effortlessly apply security policies that ensure data protection on every device.
