We are delighted to offer a new service to help the NHS save staff time and share patient information quickly and securely.

Our parent company Intechnology has launched a new division to supply world-leading clinical communication tools to NHS trusts.

Trusts can access these services via a new NHSX framework.

STORM Intelligent Communications provides instant communication services for mobile devices with a focus on workforce management.

These include instant voice communication, instant messaging, video and image sharing, location and SOS alerting capabilities.

STORM is a UK reseller of technologies developed in Israel by our sister company Mobile Tornado plc, which are deployed in more than 30 countries worldwide with mobile operators, governments and enterprises.

These are available via specialised rugged handset or smartphone application for Android and iOS operating systems and cellular or WiFi networks.

Inhealthcare is working with STORM to offer full ‘interoperability’ with all major NHS systems. This means users can exchange and make use of information between different IT systems within an NHS trust.

Luke Wilkinson, director of STORM, said: “We have seen through the coronavirus crisis the challenges faced by many organisations with their communications systems.

“By bringing together the proven capabilities of Mobile Tornado and Inhealthcare, Storm is extremely well placed to transform the way that team members communicate with each other within NHS trusts and overcome any interoperability issues.

“Organisations and individuals will be able to connect one-to-one or one-to-many and share useful information at the touch of a button. This will free up time for clinical and operational staff, streamline support for patients and speed up transfers of care.”

The Health Secretary has said the Covid-19 pandemic accelerates the need to phase out pagers and historic bleep systems.
