What is Siilo?
Siilo is a secure medical messaging app, designed to help healthcare professionals and teams better collaborate on difficult cases, improve patient care, and share knowledge in a compliant way. Siilo is GDPR compliant, has an intuitive interface, and is healthcare specific.
Siilo - the messenger for ESMINT
To enable the neurointerventional community to exchange information on the latest cases and learn from each other’s experience on a daily basis, ESMINT has initiated a dedicated network on the Siilo App.
We will use Siilo to:
- Help you find and communicate directly with all your colleagues in the ESMINT address book, which is located in the ‘Spaces’ tab.
- Have topic-specific discussions and exchanges in the ESMINT space. Ask and answer questions yourself and read what others are writing – ESMINT group leaders are available as experts.
- Create chat-groups on urgent matters with relevant colleagues.
- Make and receive secure video and voice calls to and from other users of the app
The current channels in the ESMINT space at Siilo are:
- COVID-19: Address your COVID-19 concerns – whether it’s a treatment guideline, certain cases or a very specific question. Or maybe you’ve read a super-good paper and think others should know about it? Post it so that others can see what’s current in the literature about COVID-19!
- Urgent case support: This channel is designed to provide you with support to help you with an urgent case.
- Aneurysms | Stroke | AVM/DAVF: Share your experiences, ask questions and evaluate findings.
- ESMINT Congress: The ESMINT Congress is at the forefront of cutting-edge science and innovation. Discuss topics related to our ESMINT Congress here.
- ESMINT News: We will use this channel to communicate key information related to ESMINT, such as our scientific and educational courses & congress, ESMINT initiatives, and all news about our society.
- Miscellaneous: Everything else!
