Although 99nicu.org has a great mobile interface, we lack a dedicated smartphone app.
I had a very good discussion with a few colleagues recently that were using Whatsup for chat communication with other neonatologists, and they suggested 99nicu should also start an alternative channel for more simple smartphone communication.
As we want to make room for quite a number of people, we have choosen Slack.com as the technical platform for this extension of the 99nicu community. While keeping the simplicity of chatlike smartphone use, it is still possible to organise discussions into "channels" and "threads"
What shall we use Slack for? It is all up to us but as there is push notifications directly to the smartphone, I believe we use Slack for patient discussions, when we need prompt advice.
To join the 99nicu Slack Channel, you first need to download the Slack app to your mobile. Then we just need to invite you one by one
The team address is 99nicu.slack.com
