NHHIO selects TigerText as messaging provider


TigerText, a provider of secure messaging for healthcare, has announced that the New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO), New Hampshire’s network for the digital exchange of patient health information, has selected TigerText as a secure messaging provider.

NHHIO will leverage TigerText’s messaging platform to securely connect the New Hampshire healthcare community and streamline patient care and data sharing.

NHHIO is a non-profit organization in New Hampshire facilitating the secure sharing and transmitting of protected health information (PHI) between health care providers in order to improve quality, efficiency and patient safety while reducing healthcare costs. NHHIO and its network of more than 100 hospitals, health centers, nurses’ associations, and long-term care facilities can increase efficiency by sending data using a single, secure electronic network instead of building multiple connections, or using traditional antiquated paper methods.

“As New Hampshire’s resource for health information exchange, we are excited to offer an additional resource to securely connect our providers to improve their ability to share patient health information needed for informed care decisions,” said Mary Beth Eldredge, board chair of NHHIO. “The use of secure texting can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of care coordination and provider communication.”

Brad Brooks, chief executive officer and co-founder of TigerText, added: “We’re thrilled that NHHIO has selected TigerText to help further its mission of securely connecting the healthcare community in New Hampshire. As a key partner of NHHIO, TigerText can greatly improve care quality and patient safety by delivering secure patient health information efficiently.”
