Types of DECISIVELY Service Users

You can use DECISIVELY as three types of user:

  1. Service Providers

  2. Service Recipients

  3. Organisations

Service Providers: are professionals who provide a health or wellness service. Each Professional registers for a Decisively Account. Professionals would need to complete the ‘Onboarding’ process to complete their staff profile by providing contact information, educational credentials and service details. The account is only activated after these details have been verified by a DECISIVELY administrator. 

Service Recipients: Users use the service to maintain their health and wellness record. The solution allows them to interact with their service provider. They are normally invited by a Service Provider to register.

Organisations: The account allows the organisation which could be a 3rd party organisation to view reports like gain corporate wellness insights. 


Will my information be used for anything else?

Information access by professionals is strictly on a Need-to-Know basis. You decide who can see your record. If registering as part of an Organisation and participating in a corporate wellness programme, you decide if you would like to share anonymised data you provide in questionnaires about the company for them to gain insights on organisation wellness. No personally identifiable data is revealed to the organisation. If we tell you about a research trial, you can decide to take part. Your information is not shared until you have told us you want to share it.

Data storage 

DECISIVELY 's data centers are in stored in Azure cloud in a UK location. Data for European customers remain stored in the European Economic Area (EEA). 

How we use aggregated information and statistics 

Jora Health may use aggregated information from the Service to improve the quality of the Service and for marketing of the Service (for example, to tell potential advertisers how many Service users' data are stored in the United Kingdom data centre).

This aggregated information is not associated with any individual Account.

Jora Health does not use Account-holder information for marketing purposes without Jora Health first asking for and receiving User opt-in. The only information we aggregate is usage data, e.g. how many people are using the Service, how many messages they are sending, how many test results they are receiving.

We have no access to actual health records or communications, i.e. which Users are sending messages via the Service, what the content of their message is, or what the test result was.



To keep Users informed of the latest improvements, the Service will send a newsletter. The newsletter is sent on an opt-in basis. If Users do not want to receive the newsletter, they do not check the box that requests the newsletter when signing up for the Service. Users can unsubscribe at any time with one click through a link at the bottom of the newsletter. If Users later decide that they want to receive the newsletter, the newsletter can be requested by signing up in on the web portal page.


Security of personal information

Jora Health is committed to protecting the security of personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. For example, we store Account-holder information and health records on computer servers with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. The Service stores all clinical data using encryption so that only Users, and the people Users grant access to, are able to read health records. The Service sends all communications, except e-mail, using HTTPS. The Services keep a log of all access and actions to any health record, and Users can view the full log for any health record for which they are a Patient or Professional. E-mail messages are not encrypted, so when we send email notifications, the message only contains:

  • The patient or Account-holder’s name.

  • The fact that they have new clinical data.

  • The type of clinical data they have, eg a new test result, a new message from a doctor.

  • A link to log in securely to the Account to see the data.

When we replace our servers we erase the old equipment completely as part of ISO 27001 compliance and in line with NCSC guidelines.


Use of Cookies

We use cookies with this Service to enable Users to sign in and to help personalise the Service. A cookie is a small text file that a web page server places on the device Users use to access their Account. For information about how we use cookies, please see our Cookie Policy at:

If there are material changes to this privacy notice we will notify Users, either by placing a prominent notice on the home page of the Jora Health web site or by sending a notification by email or directly to the
