TigerText boosts HIPAA-compliant image sharing facility


TigerText, a secure healthcare communications specialist, has improved its integration with Box, a HIPAA-compliant enterprise content management platform that allows users to share X-rays, CT Scans and Ultrasounds via HIPAA-compliant text messaging. 

Powered by the TigerConnect developer platform, this new integration with Box DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communication in Medicine) Viewer provides medical professionals the ability to communicate quickly and efficiently on DICOM studies for diagnostic purposes.

"The TigerConnect developer platform was created to help healthcare organizations improve communication across the care continuum with secure messaging applications, without the need to create them from scratch," said Itamar Kandel, president of TigerConnect. 

"Our latest integration with Box is an exciting step towards fulfilling our shared vision to provide patients and medical professionals with access to more information at the point-of-care."

"We're delighted to expand our integration with TigerText to now include the sharing of DICOM files via secure text messaging. This allows for quicker diagnoses and consults," said Missy Krasner, managing director of Healthcare and Life Sciences at Box. 

"TigerText has always been an important partner for Box in healthcare - helping our joint hospital customers maintain HIPAA compliance. This new integration helps doctors receive imaging studies on the web or mobile phones, allowing for quicker diagnoses and consults."
