New Hampshire Health Information Organization Upgrades Communication System, Selects TigerText Secure Messaging Platform

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 19, 2016 – TigerText, the leading provider of secure messaging for healthcare, today announced that the New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO), New Hampshire’s network for the digital exchange of patient health information, has selected TigerText as a secure messaging provider. NHHIO will leverage TigerText’s messaging platform to securely connect the New Hampshire healthcare community and streamline patient care and data sharing.

NHHIO is a non-profit organization in New Hampshire facilitating the secure sharing and transmitting of protected health information (PHI) between health care providers in order to improve quality, efficiency and patient safety while reducing healthcare costs. NHHIO and its network of more than 100 hospitals, health centers, nurses’ associations, and long-term care facilities can increase efficiency by sending data using a single, secure electronic network instead of building multiple connections, or using traditional antiquated paper methods.

“As New Hampshire’s resource for health information exchange, we are excited to offer an additional resource to securely connect our providers to improve their ability to share patient health information needed for informed care decisions,” said Mary Beth Eldredge, Board Chair of NHHIO. “The use of secure texting can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of care coordination and provider communication.”

Real-time electronic transmission of PHI between care providers in a fully HIPAA compliant manner will improve the coordination of care and increase workflow. Many TigerText customers have achieved dramatic results like reducing the average length of patient stay by nearly 2 days or saving more than $1 million a year. NHHIO network participants will receive special pricing when they sign up for TigerText to facilitate rapid adoption across the network.

“We’re thrilled that NHHIO has selected TigerText to help further its mission of securely connecting the healthcare community in New Hampshire,” said Brad Brooks, CEO and co-founder of TigerText. “As a key partner of NHHIO, TigerText can greatly improve care quality and patient safety by delivering secure patient health information efficiently.”

TigerText’s encrypted messaging platform offers secure, private and ephemeral communications, enabling rapid improvements in the accuracy, reliability, and efficiency of the coordination of team-based work environments. TigerText will enable NHHIO physicians, nurses, and care providers to quickly connect with one another, in a secure and compliant manner that ultimately improves patient care, workflow and ROI. The TigerText app and platform provides an efficient and secure tool for sending and receiving PHI, as well as other important information necessary for making critical care decisions.
