TigerText Offers Healthcare Organizations a $1 Million Guarantee against HIPAA Violations

TigerText has announced the company will indemnify healthcare organizations using its secure messaging app against fines imposed for violations of the technical safeguards in the HIPAA Security Rule.

TigerText is one of the leading providers of secure messaging solutions for the healthcare industry. Using the TigerText secure messaging app, healthcare providers are able to quickly communicate Protected Health Information (PHI) from any desktop computer or mobile device without violating HIPAA regulations.

TigerText enables healthcare organizations to embrace secure messaging as an alternative to unsecure channels of communication such as SMS and email; and the company is so confident in the compliance levels of its secure messaging app that it is offering a guarantee of up to $1 million against fines imposed for violations of the technical safeguards in the HIPAA Security Rule.

Speaking about the TigerText compliance guarantee, the company´s co-founder and SEO – Brad Brooks – said: “At TigerText our number one priority is to keep patient data safe. It is imperative that our customers comply with HIPAA secure messaging regulations and we will guarantee they meet this requirement.”

Mr. Brooks continued: “That’s why today we are introducing the industry’s first Million Dollar Compliance Guarantee. No other secure texting vendor stands by their solution to this level, which is just one more way TigerText protects you and your patients.”

TigerText´s secure messaging solution has already been implemented at the Memorial Hospital at Gulfport, from where the hospital´s Vice President and Chief Information Officer – Gene Thomas – commented: “TigerText’s million dollar guarantee gives us enormous peace of mind as an organization. In addition to keeping PHI secure, TigerText helps us to improve our care teams’ productivity, so it’s truly a win-win.”

TigerText was recently named one of the top five companies that transformed enterprise communication in 2013 by BusinessInsider.com for changing internal business communication and replacing the need for email by providing a tool that allows you to securely message and share files with coworkers from a mobile device, laptop or tablet.
