Healthcare data belongs to the patient and to no one else. Accordingly, care must be taken when storing and transmitting healthcare data. If patients or physicians use standard email applications or even WhatsApp, they are taking a big risk.
This is not the case when using Evita. The Evita health record enables patients and healthcare professionals to communicate securely with each other in the same way as if using a standard email application – including document attachments. Messages never leave the protected area of the Evita application, and patients are informed of incoming messages via email.
