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-Let’s you eliminate paper - so, no more using outdated fax machines.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.

Not Reliable

Laggy and doesn’t push texts through reliably.

Does exactly what we need

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.

Pretty good for free hippa app

Its ok. I preferred VSee (which also does video / telemedicine) but thats expensive to have Business Assoc Agreement.
I like that you can send email securely to any email. Wish you could give ppl a hint for password like protonmail or give option to not use pw if not necessary.
