PointClickCare has entered into an exclusive partnership with TigerText to deliver secure text messaging. Texts will be sent through TigerText’s Software Development Kit to PointClickCare’s EHR platform for long-term care.
PCC said it chose to partner with TigerText, which is in 3,000 healthcare facilities, to “meet the growing demand for secure communications between healthcare providers and practitioners.”
The integration will allow nurses and physicians to securely communicate time-sensitive patient issues via text, either through PointClickCare’s EHR system or from the TigerText mobile application.
“LTPAC providers have long been in need of a reliable and robust secure messaging solution that is HIPAA compliant, has the flexibility to be used within their EHR platform and on mobile devices, and also enables relevant conversations to be included in the resident’s record,” said Mike Wessinger, president and CEO of PointClickCare.
