Microsoft today announced new capabilities in Microsoft Teams that will enable secure communication and collaboration in healthcare organizations. "Our goal is to understand what our cloud and the services delivered in our cloud need to be like in order to support the success of as many startups, innovators, incumbents, big companies and small companies as possible". Now in private preview, priority notifications allow an urgent message to send alerts to the recipient every two minutes for up to 20 minutes, Microsoft says. Priority notifications will work on both desktop and mobile, but they're now in private preview. This new feature is now in private preview. Bolstering priority notifications is message delegation, which allows the recipient of an urgent message to delegate it to another person if they can't take action on it right away. For example, when a doctor is in surgery or otherwise unavailable, he can assign the message to another doctor who is available. This will allow healthcare professionals to access patient records and chat with other team members without having to switch between apps.

Microsoft announced its new service to help healthcare companies store patient data in the cloud and a Healthcare Bot service that will be integrated with Electronic Health Records.
