SANTA MONICA, CA (Jan. 7, 2013) – TigerText, the leader in secure real-time messaging, announced today their latest iOS release on the TigerTextPRO application now includes the ability to send secure video and voice messages giving physicians and nurses enhanced means to securely share critical patient information instantly.
TigerText users at over 300 healthcare facilities around the country rely on the secure messaging solution to communicate medical orders at a moment’s notice. Physicians cannot afford to waste time typing long medical terminology that is not accepted by autocorrect features built into many devices. Now, TigerText users can simply tap a button to record a voice or video message and securely send the message to a colleague without storing it in the gallery on their phone.
“The increasing demands on nurses’ and physicians’ time in the United States is reaching a breaking point with 23 million additional people being added to insured rolls under the Accountable Care Act.” Says Brad Brooks, TigerText President, and Co-Founder. “Our goal with voice and video message features is to help give nurses and physicians easier, more efficient ways to gather and transmit information to others to free up time for quality face to face interaction.”
“TigerText has assisted our practice in multiple ways,” says Jonathan Kenyon, IS Manager at
Minneapolis Radiation Oncology. “Not only does it allow our departments to converse with each other within the clinic when there is a demand for our patients to see our physicians but also this critical technology assists our physicians when they are outside the department consulting with other parts of the hospital for the complete care path of the patient. There is no doubt in my mind that TigerText is a pinnacle cornerstone in our foundation of collaborative technologies.”
TigerText is currently the only platform on the market to support secure voice and video sharing through a HIPAA compliant messaging application. The integration of these 21th-century capabilities into nurses’ and physicians’ daily workflow has the ability to dramatically improve productivity and care coordination through better workflow.
