|By Business Wire

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
is the leader in secure, real-time messaging for the enterprise.
TigerText’s encrypted messaging platform keeps communications safe,
improves workflow, and complies with industry regulations. Developed to
address the security needs, BYOD policies, and message restrictions in
the enterprise, TigerText is committed to keeping mobile communications
secure, private, and impermanent. More than 4,000 facilities have
adopted TigerText, including leading organizations like Adventist
Health, Universal Health Services, and the University of Kentucky
HealthCare, which rely on TigerText to combat challenges, such as the
HIPAA Omnibus Rule changes, comply with industry standards, and replace
unsecured SMS text messaging that leaves protected health and other
confidential information at risk. For more information visit www.tigertext.com,

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.
