Secure communications for the healthcare enterprise

Securely communicate PHI

Secure messaging for healthcare


Across every desktop and device

The need for secure messaging

According to a recent Black Book survey, 30% of clinicians receive daily unsecured texts with PHI. Why? Because care providers find texting to be more efficient than any of their other communication tools. However, SMS messaging is not a secure form of communication that can result in a HIPAA violation of up to $1.5 million per event, per hospital. Organizations need to implement a secure messaging strategy, and solution, to secure PHI and improve workflows.

Your secure messaging strategy

What if you could…

  • Improve provider productivity by eliminating phone tag in workflows such as consults, referrals, and order verifications?

  • Easily coordinate care by replacing pagers with a solution that can deliver lab results, EKGs, wound photos, and other patient information easily and securely across care teams and organizations?

  • Meet HIPAA requirements while enabling your providers to use secure messaging from their personal or corporate-owned device?

Imprivata Cortext is the secure communications platform for healthcare that enables organizations to replace pagers and improve care coordination, inside and outside the hospital.
