Casa de la Luz Hospice selects TigerText’s secure messaging platform to streamline internal and in-the-field communication, while providing more efficient care to patients.

SANTA MONICA, CA (January 14, 2014) – TigerText, a provider of secure, real-time mobile messaging for the enterprise, today announced that Casa de la Luz Hospice, a provider of end-of-life care in Arizona, has selected TigerText as its secure messaging provider. Casa de la Luz Hospice is using TigerText to streamline its internal communications, send patient updates and lab results, and coordinate care with field staff.

Established in 1998, Casa de la Luz Hospice provides superior hospice care to individuals with life-limiting illnesses in Tucson, Arizona and its surrounding communities. The organization sends nearly 32,000 TigerText messages per month, with more than 150 physicians and nurses utilizing the app and platform to securely send PHI (Protected Health Information). By enabling their administrators, physicians, and nurses to easily connect with one another, staff relies on TigerText to communicate sensitive patient information including diagnoses, prescription orders, lab results, and more. Casa de la Luz also leverages TigerText’s distribution list feature and group messaging capabilities to distribute important company information, helping them avoid email inbox clutter and unnecessary voice calls.

“Our nurses and caretakers work in-the-field and make at-home visits,” said Isaiah Adams, Director, MIS at Casa de la Luz Hospice. “We needed a reliable, encrypted, and HIPAA compliant way to communicate patient statuses and updates with these individuals, while also improving overall response times. TigerText delivered, enabling more efficient communication and care coordination among our entire staff. The solution fits effortlessly into our workflows, making our day-to-day operations run more smoothly.”

“Casa de la Luz Hospice clearly recognized the need for a mobile communication platform that could securely connect their entire workforce, and do so efficiently,” said Brad Brooks, CEO and co-founder of TigerText. “We’re pleased they’ve chosen TigerText for their secure communication needs. With faster response times, staff can focus on providing excellent patient care and delivering exceptional patient satisfaction.”

TigerText enables colleagues to quickly connect with one another in a secure and compliant manner. The TigerText app and platform provide an efficient and secure tool for sending and receiving PHI as well as other important information necessary for making critical care decisions. Casa de la Luz Hospice is among the many leading health organizations – Adventist Health, Universal Health Services, Boston Children’s Hospital and more – that have adopted TigerText’s secure messaging solution. TigerText is available for download for free on Apple and Android devices.
