Description

Finally! - Free Secure Communication for Healthcare. MedTunnel provides a HIPAA-compliant solution that allows physicians and patients to exchange private health information (PHI) that can include documents or messages. You can access MedTunnel via a web browser, a desktop app for both Mac or PC, or this iOS app. The MedTunnel iOS app allows you to send/receive both SMS and email style messages with file attachments from a single platform and inbox. No need to toggle between apps. You can even send secure messages to non-MedTunnel users via email. The unique security employed by MedTunnel utilizes two separate keys to encrypt messages. Since one key is known only by MedTunnel and the other key is known only by an independent third party, and MedTunnel and the third party are contractually obligated not to reveal their keys to each other, neither MedTunnel nor the third party can read your messages which makes MedTunnel a secure conduit through the Internet for sending PHI. Since MedTunnel acts as only a secure conduit and MedTunnel does not itself have access to PHI, according to HHS, a HIPAA business associate agreement is not required to use it. -Provides the security that email and SMS text do not. -Let’s you eliminate paper - so, no more using outdated fax machines. -Scan documents using your device's camera into a PDF file for sending. -As simple as sending a text or email. -Send and receive messages between providers, between providers and patients, and between patients. -Access from anywhere in the world. Patients do not have to drive to their doctor’s office to pick up their medical documents. -Send secure messages to non-MedTunnel users via email using a pre-determined password. -Push notifications for when you get a new message. For more details including demo videos, please visit www.medtunnel.com. Download the app and sign up for your MedTunnel ID and get connected instantly. It’s Simple. Fast. Secure…and it’s Free.

    Our group is always on the move and this app has made it much easier for us to keep in constant contact without having to pick up the phone and call each other. It's basically like texting in a secure manner and for free you can't beat it. Some quirks on iPhone including instructions pop up which give you the option to say Do not show again, but they keep popping up, there appear to be notification issues sometimes (shows a 5 notifications and then only two messages are new), and I just got a message warning me of a sent message that has not yet been read by the recipient, however the person told me they had already read the message; and also mentioned they had just sent me a message which I did not get. I can't knock it, because it's free, but it will be much better when all these things are sorted out. Update 04/30/2108 apparently app was updated recently and since then I am constantly getting logged out of the app. Even after selecting to "stay logged in" or "remember me" like I always have it now not only logs me out but forgets who I am. The update also did not yet fix the issues I mentioned above in my review from over a year ago. Once again, for a free app it is great but if I were paying for this I would be annoyed. 09/2018 Update- since the last major update several months ago we can no longer send files. When we attach document pdf files to send they are delivered scrambled and unreadable. This was New a few months ago and was happening to almost every person I send a document file too. At one point a person was able to access the pdf on iPhone MedTunnel but not on the computer access. Very inconsistent and had to switch to other software for our pdf record sharing. Disappointed at the glitch and change.

    We have been needing an app that will allow us to be HIPAA compliant while communicating with doctors. This does all that and more. Thank you. And when I reached out with an issue with the app your group was quick to respond and fix it. Great app.

    Crashes a lot, constantly having to log back in. Occasionally have to reboot the phone to get it to login. You can be actively using the app throughout the day and it’ll ask you to log back in. This app is terrible and the ring tone now causes me to wince because of the pain of using the app.
  • Logs out!
