LifePoint Hospitals’ Fauquier Health Selects TigerText as Its Facility-Wide Secure Messaging Solution

TigerText, the leader in secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise, today announced that Fauquier Health, a community health system, has selected TigerText as its secure messaging provider. Part of LifePoint Hospitals®, which operates 58 hospital campuses in 20 states, Fauquier Health is using TigerText’s secure messaging platform and application to streamline its internal communication, access on-call schedules, and improve staff’s overall clinical workflows.

Founded in 1925, Fauquier Health comprises five facilities, including Fauquier Hospital, Fauquier Health Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, an assisted living facility, and wound and wellness centers. Fauquier Health has been recognized nationwide for instituting the Planetree model, a patient-centered approach to care. Fauquier was among the first five hospitals in the nation to claim such a designation. To ensure the highest quality of patient-centered care, it is critical that their staff is able to quickly and securely communicate patient information in a busy environment.

“With increasing complexities in the flow of information across our hospital and care facilities, we needed a tool that can help us contact physicians and clinicians more easily and manage our internal communication,” said Donna Staton, Chief Information Officer at Fauquier Health. “TigerText understands these challenges and will be essential in helping us expedite our communication process and workflows so we can focus on delivering patient-centered care.”

TigerText allows organizations to embrace text messaging with its HIPAA-compliant application and secure messaging platform. By easing clinicians’ ability to connect with one another, TigerText provides an efficient and secure tool for sending and receiving PHI as well as other important information necessary for making critical care decisions. Features include message recall, set message lifespans, group messaging, a ‘Do Not Disturb’ setting, and more. Integration with AMiON’s on-call scheduling and contact system makes it easy for physicians and clinicians to access their AMiON schedules directly via the TigerText app. With its easy-to-use interface, organizations that deploy TigerText see high adoption rates and improved communication within their workforce, ultimately leading to improved patient safety and physician satisfaction.

“We’re pleased Fauquier Health has chosen TigerText for its secure messaging needs,” said Brad Brooks, TigerText co-founder and CEO. “Clinician communication is of utmost importance to provide high-quality care delivery, and Fauquier clearly recognizes the significant impact of improving clinician-to-clinician communications across its hospital and care centers.”
