SANTA MONICA, CA (June 15, 2013) – TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard, Inc, the worldwide leader in private mobile messaging for consumers and healthcare organizations, today announced its integration with Amion’s industry-leading physician and hospital-wide scheduling software. More than 5000 physician groups, residency programs, and hospitals currently use Amion’s scheduling service which enables hospital staff to view assignments, submit special requests, swap shifts online and page on-call staff. Now with TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard, these same customers can enable a private, secure and compliant text messaging network with their existing computers and smartphones. TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard provides clinicians and administrators with an easy-to-implement solution to increase workflow and reduce risk.
Leveraging the company’s technology for secure mobile message management, TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard enables hospitals to deploy their own end-to-end encrypted, private mobile network in hours not weeks. The secure solution addresses a growing demand for better management and control of text communications in the workforce as more and more employees use mobile messaging as their primary means of communication.
“We are thrilled with the technical integration with Amion,” said TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard President and Co-Founder Brad Brooks, “TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard now offers hospitals a seamless and natural extension to Amion’s industry-leading software. Our customers, as well as Amion’s, have been asking us to bring these two services together to increase productivity workflow and to reduce the risk of compliance violations.”
“Amion delivers messages to mobile devices but TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard provides an extra layer of security. Physicians don’t have to limit the patient information they put in texts,” said Stuart Karon, founder, and owner of Amion. “We are excited to offer the TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard app to Amion customers who want that extra security and the ability to confirm messages were received and read.”
Dr. James French, Executive Director, Triad Hospitalists at Moses Cone Health System has implemented both the Amion and TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard solutions saying, “We’ve literally changed the way we communicate with physicians. From my phone, I can find the on-call Gastroenterologist, notify the PCP of admission, or ask the cardiologist for an echo report without ever dialing, paging, or being put on hold. Every physician is on my phone and at my fingertips.”
At a company level, TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard provides administration and policy-level controls that can mirror privacy and security policies in other areas of their business. Using the same smartphones employees are already carrying, TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform – Standard reduces liability and risks of data leakage while enhancing employee communication and productivity.
