Hippomsg: lifeline during emergencies

JULY 25, 2012 – In recent years our country has seen some of the worst natural disasters on record. Hurricane Katrina tested the meddle of many a person in New Orleans as well as the nation’s ability to respond. Unfortunately, what we learned from that experience is that we have a long way to go in ensuring that help gets where it is needed! hippomsg is answering that call.

HippoMSG is a messaging system that allows doctors to send crucial medical information via smartphones and other portable devices while still maintaining the rules and regulations established under HIPPA (or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). HIPPA was designed to protect people’s privacy in regards to their medical history. In a situation where downed phone lines caused problems for 911 and roads were impassible for emergency personnel (like Hurricane Katrina) texting could have passed along vital information if not for the privacy requirements forbidding the use per HIPPA regulations. Not any longer.

This new encoding technology,hippomsg, allows doctors to send information that could mean the difference between life and death via their cell phones or I-pad technology. No longer do doctors have to rush to get to their information and send it along via outdated means (such as Fax). Because HippoMSG encodes the information being sent (thereby protecting the individual patients), doctors can send the required information quickly from wherever they are. There is no longer the risk of losing personal information due to a lost or stolen cell phone. HippoMSG protects your information!

HippoMSG will not stop the terrible things in life from happening but it can make getting people the much needed help they require that much easier.

HippoMSG is available for use by emergency and medical personnel. Health care’s first priority is about saving lives and HippoMSG is doing its part. For further details about HippoMSG and the new, cutting edge technology visit http://www.hippomsg.com.
