The Only IT Implementation that Improves Physician Satisfaction
TigerText has gotten a lot of interest from hospitals for Physician Texting. That’s because TigerText is compliant with federal health privacy rules.
TigerText, gets doctors in direct, secure communication with each other. Text messaging in hospitals is more efficient than phone calls and voicemails. The average person leaving college today checks their email infrequently. TigerText offers the first text messaging solution that will fit within your hospitals HIPAA Compliance Policy.
More and more hospitals are realizing the cost savings of enabling HIPAA Compliant texting in their Hospitals for Physician Texting and Nurse Communication.
Text messaging is exploding, and that’s an understatement. In 2005, cell phone users in the U.S. sent a total of about seven billion texts per month. Last year, they sent 173 billion text messages per month. That’s a monthly average of more than 600 messages per person. The main advantage of text messages is that they can be received on just about every mobile phone anywhere in the world. The main disadvantage: They’re not secure. TigerText hopes to change that paradigm by offering a secure texting system where messages are encrypted.
When you send a text, there are at least three copies: There’s one on your phone, there’s another copy on the recipient’s phone, and there’s at least one copy on your mobile carrier’s servers, not to mention any other carriers that it had to hop through along the way. In other words, when it comes down to it, text messages aren’t very private. And that’s why folks like attorneys and doctors can’t use them for work.
Physicians text private information about clients & patients so if they lose their phone, every message ever sent could be grabbed by somebody. TigerText send messages through an easy to download “App” and all messages sent are encrypted. Users set an expiration date on how long that encrypted message stays on their servers. In other words, it deletes them when you want. Once they’re gone you have the safety of knowing that there’s less data that can be leaked.
