Hospital staff Healthcare Critical Messaging

The mission of a Hospital is to save lives. During emergencies, every second counts. Medical responders must receive critical messages as quickly as possible, 24/7/365.

Achieve these goals with a PageRouter and TeraMessage Mobile solution. Your Hospital will comply with HIPAA regulations regarding protection of patient information. When using TeraMessage Mobile, text messages and attached documents, travel encrypted to smartphones and tablets. Delivery is in seconds.

One unique benefit in using TeraMessage is that patient information never leaves the recipient's smartphone. Sent pictures and Adobe PDF documents cannot be saved on the device, thus protecting who can view patient files in compliance with HIPAA.

Another great advantage is integration of messages between pager and smartphone users. This fact allows the Hospital to make a transition from pagers to smartphones as the Hospital gains operation confidence using Smartphones.
