SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TigerText, the secure communications leader in healthcare, has formed partnerships with several key technology companies, including Salesforce and Box, to launch innovative care collaboration solutions. These partnerships will enable streamlined communications across the continuum of care to dramatically decrease delivery costs while improving outcomes. TigerConnect, the TigerText developer platform, is both powering these integrations and expanding its suite of tools to inspire more healthcare developers to push patient-centric care to new levels.
"Healthcare is hungry for better communication tools that are embedded into existing workflows," said Itamar Kandel, president of TigerConnect. "With TigerConnect, our partners can harness the power of secure messaging to address this need without the hassle, cost, and delay of building it themselves."
The latest partner launches leveraging TigerConnect's secure messaging infrastructure include:
- Salesforce Health Cloud: Salesforce Health Cloud customers will soon be able to embed the TigerText messaging service in their Health Cloud portals, empowering clinical staff to conduct HIPAA-compliant conversations for streamlined care coordination.
- Box: Through a new integration with the Box DICOM Viewer, both TigerText and Box hospital users will now be able to share and collaborate on DICOM images (such as X-rays, CT scans and ultrasounds) via the TigerText mobile interface.
TigerConnect for Startups, Platform Extensions and New Developer Portal
Radical technological transformation is needed to meet the challenges of healthcare delivery in the 21st century. In an effort to support innovative companies through every stage of growth, TigerText has launched TigerConnect for Startups. The launch partners for this new initiative include:

- WinguMD: Working with TigerConnect, WinguMD, a medical enterprise grade mobile photography solution, enables medically meaningful and secure collaboration of visual findings for the entire care team.
- AccountedCare: AccountedCare's PoC software, a mobile technology platform for value-based care providers, utilizes TigerConnect to deliver real-time notifications, tracking, and reporting across the post-acute care continuum to manage cost and quality for ACOs.
"For both established industry leaders and early-stage startups working on the cutting edge of healthcare innovation, TigerText is a trusted partner," Kandel adds. "With TigerConnect, a developer platform that is robust, secure, and fast to deploy, we enable our partners to return to their core focus of innovation and, ultimately, save lives."
