Communication in healthcare is a challenge. Doctors still carry around pagers and play phone tag with each other. Patients rarely like calling their doctors and practices, leaving a voicemail, and waiting for a call back.
We set out to simplify clinical care coordination and patient communication by making it as easy as texting.
OhMD is a simple HIPAA compliant texting platform that allows doctors to securely text message with other healthcare professionals, doctors, patients and care teams. Text messaging with OhMD allows physicians to save time throughout their busy days, decrease phone tag and voicemails, and improve the timeliness of care coordination.
OhMD makes patient communication as easy as sending and receiving a text message. It is a free app for all patients to use with their doctors and care teams in participating practices and hospitals.
How to use OhMD (for Doctors):
Once you create an account, you can invite anyone to download OhMD so you can use it to communicate. This includes patients and colleagues. If you want to implement it across a practice or organization, we offer a ton of flexibility to allow you to build out care teams, message routing, appointment reminder texts, broadcast messages, and more. Once you get going, it's as easy as texting.
How to use OhMD (for Patients):
Ever feel like it would be so much easier if you could just send a message to your practice or doctor? Maybe a quick question about a rash or a medication question? OhMD looks and feels just like texting, and makes being a patient so much easier. Download and sign up for OhMD and then find your provider. Once you do that, you'll be texting in no time.

Ratings and Reviews
Best HIPAA compliant texting app ⛑
Easily the best HIPAA compliant texting app out there. They even have the ability to send SMS message to patients.
I have been using it with my doctor for a few months. It’s so convenient to schedule appointments and send health updates. I used regular texts before but privacy was a big issue so I always felt like I should delete conversations with my doctor. But I had my text notifications enabled so any text with sensitive info could pop up on my screen at any time. Who wants that?
OhMD is a great solution. It is updated regularly and support is fast. Thanks to the devs for a job well done!
Helpful App for Patient-Physician post op questions and concerns
Excellent texting app that keeps info confudential. Easy to use and a great way to contact the physician with questions. It is non invasive, meaning you can answer when convenient, which I think is helpful for the phhysicians and their asssitants. As a patient it is comforting to know I can get answers to questions without having to make an appointment and knowing that it is secure and confidential is also a comfort. I wish all doctors used this platform!
Works great!!!... Well, kind of.
I love the app when it’s working. The program works fine for a day or two, then it stops allowing me into the texting field. I enter the correct email and password, it allows me in for about a second, then I get redirected back to the sign in page. After a frustrating 3 minutes of trying to sign in again, I decided to trash the app and download it again from the App Store. Magically, my email and password work flawlessly. The app works well for another day or so. This could be such an awesome platform, if the app was just more reliable. I’d pay for this app for sure.
