Onset Technology, creator of OnPage pager replacement for Android, iPhone and Blackberry, announced today that SJH Cardiology Associates selected OnPage for dependable HIPAA compliant, encrypted messaging among their MDs and Staff, using a variety of Smartphones. OnPage provides SJH reliable and secure communication that protects patient information, and automatically notifies the sender when the message was delivered and when it was actually read.
Located in Central New York, SJH Cardiology Associates specializes in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. SJH Cardiology Associates provides the highest quality of care to their patient population, implementing the most advanced methods of Early Detection, Clinical Management, Prevention, Education, and Rehabilitation of the cardiovascular disease process. Now, with OnPage Priority Messaging, they will also make use of the latest communication technology to ensure that their MDs and Staff are always informed and immediately reachable in emergency situations.
As a cardiovascular practice, messaging reliability is critically important to the practice. Having missed urgent pages in the past, SJH understands the importance of reliable communication. Having used traditional pagers in the past, SJH saw a continuous deterioration in the reliability of their pagers due to pager towers being decommissioned in their area. After upgrading to OnPage, SJH receives messages on time, along with an audit trail of when the message was sent, when it was delivered, when it was read, and when it was replied.
A key factor in SJH’s decision to select OnPage was the ability to have HIPAA Compliant messaging on a variety of smartphone platforms. The OnPage application works on iPhone (all iOS), Blackberry and Android devices, making the switch from pagers to OnPage an easy one.
“SJH had two issues on hand: first the diminishing traditional paging service in their area, and second, the need for a tool for secure HIPAA-compliant communication among their physicians. OnPage addressed both issues with one application and a fixed price regardless of the number of messages sent” said Judit Sharon, President and CEO of Onset Technology.
“OnPage is the perfect tool for medical personnel wishing to send secure and dependable messages via cell phones. So far, both physicians and staff are thrilled with the reliability, ease and ability to keep track of messages for any given length of time. The staff at OnPage has been both courteous and helpful, and the cost is fair. 10 out of 10.” -Barbara D. Capriotti, Office Manager at SJH Cardiology Associates
SJH will also benefit from OnPage’s Web Management Console, a secure, HIPAA-compliant online dispatcher that enables SJH to manage their communications from a centralized location. The console also allows users to track, and audit all of their priority messages via any incoming channel (phone, email, app, and console). It also enables the creation of groups and escalation protocols for different types of emergencies.
OnPage converts any iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android device into a secure, fault-tolerant communication system. It guarantees that no messages will ever be missed. OnPage currently supports Apple iOS 5, BlackBerry 7 OS, and Android. For more information about OnPage, visit the OnPage website at http://www.OnPage.com,
