Text Messaging in Healthcare: Friend or Foe?

Here is an upcoming webinar titled, "Text Messaging in Healthcare: Friend or Foe?"
Friday, June 15, 2012 | 2:00 pm ET/11:00 am PT | Duration: 1 Hour

Text messaging has become the #1 form of communication in the United States. This is because it’s one of the fastest, reliable, and efficient forms of information exchange. In healthcare communication, however, SMS text messaging is incompliant and violates HIPAA regulations due to its lack of security.

Aware of the security risks and hefty HIPAA fines, many healthcare professionals choose to continue to use text-messaging to communicate PHI because it is unmatched by any other communication systems that are in place today.

Please join us during this webinar as we examine the risks, benefits, and solutions to text-messaging in healthcare and learn how a Santa Monica, CA company, called TigerText, is revolutionizing the “text-message” and bringing healthcare communication into the 21st century.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • HIPAA regulations in regards to text-messaging
  • Risks and Benefits to text messaging in healthcare
  • A HIPAA compliant solution to text messaging and communicating in healthcare.
