Kiwi secure messaging app Celo to enter Australian market on global march

Auckland-based secure messaging vendor Celo is targeting the Australian market with its healthcare-specific clinical messaging app, which aims to replace the unauthorised use of consumer apps such as WhatsApp in the healthcare sector.

The app allows clinicians to message each other securely, take clinical photos that can be synced to desktop systems or EMRs, and has the ability to get patient consent using a sign-on glass consent process.

This article describes WhatsApp as an "unauthorized consumer app". What authorization framework is the author referring to?

I don't know of any hospital in New Zealand or Australia that authorises the use of WhatsApp, although I could be wrong. Obviously it is used by clinicians, whether authorised or not.

What is the "authorisation" process and who does it?
