TigerConnect enables Pathology, Inc. to quickly and securely send critical alerts and lab values to doctors’ mobile devices.

SANTA MONICA, CA (October 15, 2013) – TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise, today announced that Pathology, Inc., the West Coast’s premier women’s health laboratory, has selected the TigerConnect platform to directly deliver critical lab results to doctors’ mobile devices. By using TigerText’s API, TigerConnect, Pathology, Inc. continues to show its commitment to being a forward thinking laboratory that leverages new technology to help its clients better coordinate patient care and improve patient outcomes.

Pathology, Inc. is a full-service laboratory offering both clinical and anatomic pathology testing. With thousands of doctors relying on them daily for critical lab alerts, Pathology, Inc. leverages TigerText’s secure communication network to expedite lab values to its physicians.

TigerConnect integrated seamlessly with Pathology, Inc.’s lab information management system (LIMS) to enable instantaneous delivery of critical lab alerts to doctors, without staff having to making a single phone call. With a dashboard accessible from both mobile devices and the web, Pathology, Inc. can send critical lab alerts directly to doctors’ mobile devices. With delivery and read receipts, TigerText lets Pathology, Inc. staff know when a clinician has received their alert, helping reduce the amount of time spent verifying the doctor received the message.

Recipients without the TigerText app on their phone can still receive lab alerts and access the information via a secure browser. All information sent across the network is encrypted in transit and leverages TigerText’s secure, HIPAA compliant messaging network. The network also complies with the new HIPAA Omnibus rule changes, which went into effect September 23, 2013.

“Pathology, Inc. is committed to providing the highest level of service to our clients,” said Dr. Ron Blum, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Business Development, at Pathology, Inc. “And that includes using the latest technologies to provide important information to help physicians deliver reliable and timely care to their patients. With TigerText, we’ve not only accelerated our report delivery process, but we’re helping bring peace of mind to the doctors and patients who rely on us for rapid communication of critical lab values.”

TigerConnect is fast, simple and easy to deploy. It encrypts all aspects of communications, including photo and file attachments and enables one-to-one communication between systems or among users. TigerConnect seamlessly integrates with LIMS software to help laboratories deliver lab values securely, efficiently, and directly to the ordering physician.
