TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration Platform Introduces “TigerPage,” a 21st Century Pager Replacement for Physicians

SANTA MONICA, CA, August 23, 2012 – TigerConnect, the leader in secure, real-time messaging, recently introduced “TigerPage” which enables users to turn their smartphones into a pager. TigerPage, which works within the existing TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration application, functions just like a conventional pager but incorporates next-generation features like the ability to leave voice messages, message transcription, and one-click callback capability directly from subscribers’ smartphones.

All TigerPage subscribers receive a unique phone number associated with their TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration account. Once a caller leaves a message, TigerPage subscribers will immediately receive a push notification on their smartphone through the TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration app where they can directly view the callback number and listen to or read the transcribed voice message. The subscriber can then immediately callback with the tap of a button. Physicians can share their TigerPage number with hospital operators, answering services, nurse and hospital staff, and lab technicians just like they would do with any other pager number.

“For our healthcare users, TigerPage eliminates the need for carrying around multiple devices allowing them to ditch the pager and start utilizing their smartphones instead,” says Jeffrey Evans, TigerConnect CEO. “For users who have grown accustomed to the traditional pager system, TigerPage gives them the familiarity of the pager workflow while integrating them to text messaging and the 21st-century messaging features of TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration.”

TigerPage is the latest innovation released on the upgraded TigerConnect Clinical Collaboration platform. The upgrade also includes the ability to send large file attachments and faster connection time. TigerPage is now available for iPhone and Android devices as well as the TigerConnect web portal.
