SANTA MONICA, CA (October 28, 2015) – TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging, affirmed its position as the most widely adopted solution in Healthcare according to a recently issued report by KLAS on secure messaging. With more customers than the next top 6 competitors combined, TigerText’s innovation and reputation for driving adoption helped it earn the distinction of a market leader.
According to the KLAS report titled Secure Messaging 2015: First Look at Who Providers Are Considering and Why, “The high speed-to-value proposition offered by TigerText has allowed them to secure the largest market share of any secure messaging vendor.”
“It’s extremely rewarding to have an esteemed organization like KLAS validate our overwhelming leadership position in secure messaging for healthcare,” said Brad Brooks, TigerText CEO and Co-Founder. “As the veteran player in the secure messaging space, we remain intensely focused on driving healthcare innovation through our commitment to deliver the highest value for our customers.”
KLAS’ findings were validated in the comments from survey respondents:
On Care Coordination
“TigerText is our care coordinators’ lifeline. They would all walk out the door if we took it away from them. They are able to get the doctors engaged and take action, make decisions, and provide advice because the doctors don’t mind responding to TigerText messages.”
“TigerText is a huge benefit to care coordination. If a patient goes to the ER or has an inpatient visit, the PCP is automatically notified. That didn’t happen before. Now the PCPs even know why their patients are there. They can see the admitting diagnoses, and they can engage in dialogue with the ER physicians and the transitional care managers. This leads to lower readmission rates. We have a 3%–4% readmission rate now, while our state average is 12%–15%. TigerText is a huge contributor to that.”
“TigerText is at the heart of our workflow. It has really helped us be a lot more efficient… TigerText is fundamental to our process.”
“We use TigerText in a couple of different ways. In our lab, we have a computer the lab personnel can use to send critical results directly to providers. We allow all of our advanced practice RNs, physician assistants, physicians, and any of the nurses on the floor access to the system.”
On Integrations & Interfaces
“TigerText has a great, open API that enables us to do those type of things very easily. A lot of other companies don’t have that kind of open API.”
“We are using a version of TigerText that integrates with our EMR. It is great because we get the integration and the convenience of secure messaging.”
“We’ve done system notifications with TigerText. Our HIE has a good notification engine and we’ve enabled TigerText as a delivery method so physicians and other caregivers can choose to get certain notifications system generated from our HIE.”
“Overall, TigerText has met and exceeded our expectations.”
