Cureatr is a HIPAA-compliant care collaboration and communication platform for physicians, nurses, and other members of the care team. It is designed to be fast and easy to use. Similar to GroupMe or Facebook Messenger, Cureatr allows you to message groups or individuals, but it is secure and private to meet HIPAA standards.

Use Cureatr to communicate with your team on the wards, consult services, or any colleague inside or outside of the hospital to coordinate better patient care and share information more efficiently. Since Cureatr is HIPAA-compliant, you can freely share patient information, rather than having to rely on slower and less secure methods like reply-all emails, SMS, or pagers.

Cureatr was created by young doctors from Mount Sinai Hospital and Columbia University to solve common, everyday problems faced by all healthcare providers.

1) Real-time 1-to-1 and group messaging that is encrypted and HIPAA-compliant
2) Time-stamped read receipts show when messages are received by each user
3) Collaborative checklists and workflows for true collaboration on critical processes
4) Patient-centric messaging to provide a patient context to messages
5) Care Transition Notifications that alert the care team of patient location and diagnoses

Excellent communication tool


We use this for confidential communication regarding patients on a minute by minute basis. Much more efficient than a phone call and it forces personnel to be concise and precise, as well as having a trail of record to ensure appropriate follow up of important messages.

The reason that I gave it only 4 stars is that the interface is lacking a couple of key features: 1) a filter/search function in order to find a past message quickly and 2) a tool to archive multiple messages without having to select individually. I am sure this functionality is planned, but for now there is little support for high-volume users to deal with large numbers of messages.

Good app but still needs plenty of work

VNC viewer

Application works well, however it is not possible to delete read, seen, old messages. You can archive them so you do not see them but they are still in your phone, eventually you end up with thousands of useless messages. I decided not to use this application because I do not want to fill the phone memory with unneeded messages. If you delete the application and install it again you can not get rid of all these messages which are not longer needed.

Developer Response

Hi VNC viewer! HIPAA compliance mandates that we not delete any clinical communications, but we realize you may not want them in your inbox, so we allow archiving.

As far as app storage, all Cureatr messages are securely stored on our servers, and are never downloaded to your device. No matter how many messages you receive, the app should not take up much room on your device at all.

Thanks for using Cureatr!

No search function, won’t allow picture upload


I cannot search messages by patient name. Also this used to be fun to use because you could upload a picture from the phone but now it makes you log in to Cureatr then take the picture from within the app. Try entering a secure password and navigating the app while your patient is standing waiting in clinic.

Developer Response

Hi Albanycat - unfortunately while Cureatr does support search and seamless uploading without logging back in, they are most likely disabled by your system administrator for security. As a development team with a bunch of clinicians on it, we know how annoying it can be to type in your password when a patient is waiting and we feel your pain!
