TigerText Launches HealthBot Capable of Automating the Provision of Healthcare Information to Patients

TigerText has launched a new secure, HIPAA-compliant, messenger service for web portals and mobile applications which automates a wide range of tasks that previously required the time of support staff. All too often patients face extended wait times when calling hospitals and other healthcare facilities and hold times in excess of 30 minutes are far from uncommon.

Patient web portals are a convenient way of communicating with patients more efficiently, yet healthcare staff are still required to man the web portals. Many of the questions asked by patients via web portals can be easily handled by a messenger bot. Automating these services can reduce patient waiting times and provide patients with instant answers to their questions.
