Webinar Recording: 11 Communication Tips to Get An Hour Back in Your Day


Jul 7, 2017 TigerText

As nurses, we understand your passion for caring for patients at the bedside, as well as the exhaustion that can accompany you each day.

We developed our most recent webinar with you, the nurses in mind, and each use case focuses not only on time savings, but overall nursing burnout reduction. One of the key take-aways is that there is an easy, secure and convenient way to communicate with your healthcare team.

Some scenarios we covered:

  • Patient Admissions
  • Specialist Consult Requests
  • Wound Care Consult Requests
  • Critical Incident Notifications
  • Patient Status Changes
  • Lab Status Requests


With over 60% of clinical communication initiated by nurses, we know you are the great communicator. You have a need to connect with clinical and non-clinical team members every day in various situations, and the estimated minutes saved by utilizing TigerText can truly amount to hours during each shift for you and your colleagues.

Gone are the days of phone tag, unanswered pages, and care interruption. TigerText’s tools can be utilized seamlessly on your desktop and on your handheld devices, available wherever you are with a variety of functions and integrations for all your communication needs. You can now securely message detailed patient information and know your message was sent, delivered and read!
