Happy to get rid of WhatsApp

Ever since Facebook updated their privacy policy for WhatsApp to start collecting data and sharing it with Facebook, I was concerned about the risk involved to everyone, especially thous of us who are unknowingly using WhatApp for health care related communications. I need to be able to connect with other doctors and my clinical staff in a fast and secure way that makes health data safe knowing that the conversations are not being tracked or the meta-data is being used for advertising purposes. This is where I discovered Buzz. I was thinking about switching to Signal or Telegram, but non of these apps are HIPAA secure or should be used by healthcare providers. Most of the features found in WhatsApp and much more are available here. I'm definitely very happy with the service and recommend it to all my colleagues. Happy to get rid of WhatsApp.

Thank you for your endorsement. We have added an ability to integrate users' WhatsApp conversation messages in Buzz groups and even publish them independently via public or private links. We are committed to streamlining healthcare communication and collaboration without compromising or exposing your personal and professional data to ad-networks. Buzz works seamlessly between mobile and web platforms including Android & Chrome-based platforms, commonly used by patients & their families.

One word: useful. This app is the future.

Who knew you could innovate so effectively in healthcare? Buzz has done it! They’ve incorporated features from tech platforms that we use in our everyday lives but that digital health has been far too slow to adopt. It’s also totally secure, which is 100% necessary. Buzz has inadvertently helped our organization think outside of the box, and it has provided a robust set of tools for us to do so. Need a new feature? Buzz is so agile they will actually incorporate it overnight. I’ve shared the app with colleague and friends who, after playing with it to figure out the features, totally love it. This is the future of healthcare especially in a post-COVID world. Highly recommend this app for any organization.
