The increasing fast pace of the workplace requires real-time response and access, as well as secure text messaging. Smartphones can help bridge the technology gap for mobile employees as well as those that are just away from their desk, who need to respond after-hours, or receive critical communications.

HipLink Mobile is a mobile application that provides maximum flexibility to optimize use of smartphones and tablets for secure texting. Using HipLink Mobile, a User can have a priority view of important alerts, receive fully-secure text messages, send secure messages, and execute actions remotely.

HipLink's proprietary protocol operates over live connections so that text messages can be sent completely independent of cellular SMS. The applications provide advance messaging features for encrypted text messages, the ability to override phones settings for emergency messages, and one click responses. Combined with the secure and easy to manage HipLink Platform, the HipLink Mobile App improves overall communication throughout the organization, regardless of location.

Emergency Channel for Mass Notification

An example of use for the Emergency Channel is immediate, emergency notification coverage to every desktop, iPhone and Android device on a university campus, medical facility or other large site. The reach of this notification empowers entities to respond to a crisis situation with real-time information that can ultimately save lives and prevent further misfortune. 

Message Encryption

To ensure message confidentiality, integrity and authenticity at the highest level for HIPAA and CJIS compliance, HipLink uses the best possible mechanism, Transport Layer Security (TLS), which is recognized as the security standard in the enterprise community.

Using TLS, HipLink smartphone Apps support a wide variety of bit-rate encryption options that include 256-bit AES encryption standards configurable by the administrator.

One of the more interesting features HipLink has developed by using this standard is a "single session" handshake process. By using this method, the TLS encryption key is constantly changing on each communication session between the HipLink server and the mobile device. This short "time to live" makes cracking the encryption extremely difficult as the key is constantly regenerating with each communication transaction.

The security features apply to all phases of message delivery, both messages sent to the phone and responses sent back.

Wi-Fi Support

Support of Wi-Fi enabled devices has never been easier than with the HipLink Mobile App. Set your smartphone for Wi-Fi communication to the HipLink server when you are in the office and HipLink will automatically switch between your carrier's data network and the Wi-Fi network when in range.

Remote Device Management

In addition to client applications, there are several features for Remote Device Management from the HipLink administrative interface that are built in the HipLink Mobile App.

 Administrators will be able to take the following actions from the HipLink GUI:

  • Establish and enforce a General Security Policy for all Users
  • Push application settings remotely from HipLink to the phone or desktop
  • Push application capabilities and permissions
  • Delete all or selected data stored in the device application
  • Perform remote wipe
  • Lock out access to HipLink 

Quick Custom Actions - The "Easy" Button

The HipLink Mobile App includes very powerful tools that allow you to script any action on the HipLink server and make these actionable scripts available under the control of User permissions as a custom action on the mobile device.

An example of a custom action could be "Call Security" to a specific location, "Activate the Cath Lab Team," retrieve and update data from your backend EMR, or from any other backend system. The custom actions are presented as forms with fields that you can enter in any dynamic component. A filled out custom action form can be saved as a quick action for one button press activation - call it the "Easy Button."

Organizations can also have informational topics listed that their citizens can select for timely informational updates.


HipLink customers are able to expand the reach of Computer-Assisted Dispatch (CAD) systems beyond TAP or dial-up for wireless 911 messages that cover the most efficient messaging protocols available. HipLink integrates with CAD systems to provide the wireless paging and messaging component, adding advanced functionality with message filtering and grouping features.

For greater protection of people and property, the HipLink Alarm Notification Gateway, an automated, wireless notification system, integrates with countless applications to send critical notifications from a variety of systems. These systems can be anything from fire, HVAC, security, building management systems, environmental monitors, nurse call systems, laboratory software and even manufacturing assembly lines. Reduce alarm event storms. Any system with an ASCII output string can be monitored by HipLink and important alerts can be converted into detailed messages and delivered to any person or group.

HipLink is proven, reliable alarm management software that serves as a central point for alarm configuration, filtering and management to send time-sensitive alarms immediately and automatically from a third-party system.

The software then immediately generates and sends alerts and notifications to an individual or to any group with full escalation.

Centralized alarm administration is critical and HipLink can accept multiple inputs from an unlimited number of com ports. Using advanced filtering functions, rules can be defined to evaluate, parse and reformat the content of messages using regular expressions for delivery and custom reporting.  

The user-defined filtering rules can map the incoming data to fixed format records that can be further processed. Messages can be sent out based on conditions that can be defined on the serial input records. Reduce any alarm flood periods to decrease incidents. 

HipLink offers extensive grouping capabilities for delivery based on schedules, priority or even rotation of alerts so that the message goes to the right person and the right time. All wireless carriers and devices are supported including full two-way protocols for delivery confirmation.
