SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging, today moved to root out outdated technology of pagers and fax machines once and for all by introducing two new solutions – TigerPage and TigerFax. These two products allow users to receive and respond instantly to pages and faxes from their smartphone, in a secure, highly efficient, and HIPAA-compliant way.
“Pagers and fax machines are 30 years past their prime, and yet they are still widely used in thousands of hospitals across the U.S.,” said Brad Brooks, TigerText CEO and Co-Founder. “These outdated tools slow the delivery of patient care and cost organizations billions of dollars in lost productivity each year. With TigerPage and TigerFax, our goal is to eliminate these devices altogether by leveraging our secure messaging platform to provide a smarter, more efficient and integrated way to communicate. We are intent on transforming healthcare communication and thus feel strongly that the first step is to get rid of these outdated technologies. As part of this effort we are also targeting other developers to leverage our TigerConnect API platform, to help them build solutions to replace faxing and paging. Healthcare remains the last bastion in corporate America that still relies on almost 2 million pagers which are inefficient and slow down delivery of care.”
