Induction Healthcare Group

Every healthcare professional, every day, using an Induction Healthcare product to streamline the delivery of care.


We give back time to our users. Time for doctors to treat their patients and time for patients to get the treatment they need sooner. From bypassing the hospital switchboard, to ensuring clinical teams know when and where they are working, our apps for clinical teams are the most used in the UK.

Our relentless focus on simple, but effective solutions – underpinned by sophisticated data integration technology – is helping fuel the inevitable digital transformation of healthcare. It’s about the right people, in the right place, with the right data, at the right time.

Induction Switch is an iOS and Android app used by most junior doctors in the NHS.

Used by over 140,000 Healthcare professionals, Induction Switch is a communication and sharing platform that enables Healthcare professionals to connect and collaborate securely with the people they need within a complex clinical environment.

Switch saves healthcare professionals time by allowing them to bypass the hospital’s switchboard, helping them locate extensions and bleeps quickly and chat securely.

Hospitals set clinical guidance locally, typically producing guidelines that are rarely efficiently circulated or adhered to as they are not available at the point of care.

Local specialists use the MicroGuide platform to create, edit and publish structured and governance-controlled guidance and policies.

Automated distribution of that guidance to mobile users, combined with local intranet availability, results in not only a significant increase in guidance consumption but a material increase in local guidance adherence.
