Connecting patients, friends and families...

We understand the pain of being away from loved ones, especially when they are unwell.  With the current pandemic adding to the already isolating experience of being in hospital, visitor restrictions are making a bad situation even worse.

That is why we created the HowRU service.

HowRU is a Video collaboration service that has been made specifically to connect patients with their loved ones.  With a simplified account set up and all hosted on a secure platform, HowRU is an end to end solution that just works - enabling nurses and clinicians to do what they do best.
