Health Intelligence Messenger

Health Intelligence Messenger (HIM) is software and a service offered by Patients First that facilitates the electronic transmission of GP2GP messages between general practices. It is offered as an alternative to using other service providers to transfer GP2GP messages.

There are a number of advantages of using HIM over other transport service providers:

  • guaranteed to either be free or less than other service provider charges
  • lowers the overall cost of using the GP2GP service
  • no theoretical file size limit (current limit is 20Mb)
  • provides an alternative secure transport provider option
  • supports further development of GP2GP
