TigerConnect Unveils TigerTouch to Align Providers, Patients, and Health Systems Together on a Single Communications Platform
TigerConnect, provider of healthcare’s most advanced, reliable, and widely adopted clinical communications and collaboration (CC&C) platform, today announced a series of major product enhancements to be showcased at the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Symposium event in Orlando, Florida. Topping the list of product rollouts from TigerConnect is the proprietary “TigerTouch” solution, which enables health systems to communicate directly with patients through video, voice, and text.
As patients become more active participants in their own care, the ability to communicate with physicians, nurses, case managers, and home health caregivers is critical in a modern health system. Organizations that connect caregivers and patients will invariably see improvements to key metrics in areas like outcomes, patient safety, cost reduction, and staff satisfaction.
“Our largest health system customers have been asking how they can include patients in the ‘care conversation.’ TigerTouch gives health systems the ability to engage patients on their mobile device in a HIPAA-compliant way,” said Brad Brooks, co-founder and CEO. “Our vision is to become the communication fabric across every large health system, beyond just the acute care setting. Those that adopt our platform now have the ability to provide better care, streamline operations, and save millions in avoidable costs, while making physicians, nurses, and patients happier.”
