Providence Anesthesiology Associates Deploys TigerText to Accelerate Communication with In-the-Field Staff

11.19.14 Press Releases

Anesthesiology practice selects TigerText’s secure messaging platform to facilitate HIPAA compliant communication with its mobile workforce.

SANTA MONICA, CA (November 19, 2014) – TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise, today announced Providence Anesthesiology Associates, an anesthesia and perioperative care group serving patients across North Carolina, has selected TigerText as its secure messaging provider. TigerText will enable Providence Anesthesiology Associates’ employees to connect with their clinicians – many of whom work off-site at multiple health center locations – in a safe, secure, and HIPAA compliant manner.

“Because the majority of our clinicians work at various sites throughout the state, we needed a secure communication tool that would help us quickly reach one another and expedite response times,” said Jordan Deuink, Information Management Officer at Providence Anesthesiology Associates. “TigerText understands the challenges our practice faces in delivering patient-centered care across the numerous care facilities we serve. Their solution will be instrumental in helping us reach and connect with staff while enabling our anesthesiologists to better coordinate care.”

With dozens of clinicians working at various locations – hospitals, medical centers, surgery centers and more – Providence Anesthesiology Associates sought a secure messaging tool to improve communication and coordination of care with offsite staff. TigerText addressed these needs by providing an integrated communication platform that enables staff to quickly connect with their mobile employees in a safe and secure manner. With TigerText’s message delivery and read receipts, staff can confirm messages have been seen, while group messaging capabilities help their care teams communicate around a single patient. Providence Anesthesiology Associates especially appreciated TigerText’s distribution list feature, which allows an admin user to send information to a custom set of users at one time.

“We’re excited to work with Providence Anesthesiology Associates,” said Brad Brooks, TigerText Co-Founder and CEO. “TigerText is engineered to address the communication and workflow inefficiencies caused by pagers, voice and email. Providence Anesthesiology Associates recognized the need for a mobile communication platform that could quickly connect their entire mobile workforce, and do so securely. With TigerText, staff can communicate everything from scheduling and appointments to patient updates and prescription orders, helping improve daily workflows and enabling them to better facilitate care.”
