Connect with those who matter when it matters most

January 15, 2015 is designed to provide a free-to-use communication channel between friends and family, healthcare professionals, patients and support groups during the crisis time when people are in hospital or care.

The time someone gets admitted to hospital is often one of the most stressful periods a family goes through and they and close friends need information and need to communicate, but in a private environment. That’s what provides.

We’re not trying to replace Facebook as the social network everyone uses day to day, what we’re doing is providing a private, secure, easy-to-set-up and use closed social network where you can invite the right people in to share information about what’s happening and what needs to be done. At the same time Tutella also allows wider communication via normal social media channels but also allows medical professionals to contribute to the closed network in a private environment.

It really helps everyone to take the stress out of what is a very difficult time.

Nurses are backing the scheme as it means communication with and about the patient does not always have to go through them – anything to reduce the huge amount of time every ward nurse spends on the phone during every shift.
