Bleepa® is an application for clinical staff to securely message and view medical images in real time on their phones and mobile devices, linking directly to the hospital’s image management and IT systems.
Please contact us if you don’t find your answer here. We are always interested.
Bleepa is a secure instant messaging system that shares clinical grade medical images on personal devices such as phone or tablet.
Bleepa speeds up care for patients by connecting all the members of the clinical team, enabling rapid collective decision making and secure sharing of information.
Bleepa shares clinical quality images direct from the hospital imaging archiving (PACS) system combined with the secure messaging channel enabling interaction between colleagues.
Frequently the front-line clinician eg in A&E or orthopaedics needs a second opinion from a colleague who is remote. Bleepa gives the ability to contact, review and discuss images in real time with minimal disruption.
Commercially available platforms only have the ability to share photographs which do not have sufficient detail or review capabilities. Crucially many platforms do not conform to the legal requirements of protecting patient confidentiality. Bleepa allows manipulation of the original images for detailed review and communication within a secure encrypted platform.
No, Bleepa is designed to connect the entire clinical team, doctors and all allied healthcare professionals involved in patient care, giving them the ability to share information, review medical images and gain consensus with colleagues.
No, Bleepa is designed for immediate decision-making. New images or scans will continue to be reported subsequently by radiologists as part of the patient review.
Bleepa will be sold on a subscription basis, there are some minimal set-up costs and then a monthly fee based on the number of people using the system. We are pleased to discuss individual needs
To maximise the utility of Bleepa it is envisaged that a whole department or hospital will invest to allow everyone to benefit from it.
Feedback Medical believes that Bleepa will be transformational in the way clinicians communicate which will allow quicker decision-making and patient intervention. The chat data will be available for review by the hospital for medical or legal review if needed.
Bleepa development will allow organisations to comply with data protection guidelines, such as those required by the NHS. Data is encrypted in transit and at rest and will be stored securely.
The hospital controls that data, which will be managed by Feedback Medical on behalf of the customer (hospital). It will not be used for any other purposes or exchanged with any third parties.
Bleepa will be launched at the NHS Expo in Manchester on September 4th and 5th where it will be demonstrated, with technical and user experts on hand. We are also pleased to arrange individual demonstrations to interested groups of users.
Bleepa is built on our tried-and-tested Cadran imaging platform, but is designed to connect to all DICOM compliant radiology and cardiology imaging systems.
Bleepa can display all radiology and cardiology images including magnetic resonance, CT scans, x-rays, angiograms, ultrasound.
Yes the messaging system allows all your specialists to review cases and log comments.
In other Apps such as WhatsApp the data belongs to the individual signed up users and is stored on their devices. The hospital has no visibility or control. There is nothing (other than code of conduct) to prevent users from sharing data with unauthorised people.
Bleepa will be released as healthcare software controlled by the hospital and the hospital will ultimately have responsibility for the data and its management (we will act as their agents).
