OnPage Pager Application Celebrates 2nd Birthday!

onpage birhtday

Hard to believe, we are already two years in the market!! The OnPage pager application for Android, iPhone and Blackberry was the FIRST in the market to offer hosted Paging service on Smartphones.  Not the traditional paging service capabilities on Android, iPhone and Blackberry but smart paging that ensures efficiency, accountability and reliability. For most individuals, Paging is an 80’s term. Most will say “I used to carry a pager 20 year ago…” or “Who still needs a Pager these days?” But the answer is simple: Paging is a term used to describe urgency, priority messaging which we all still need, and thus it should not be associated with the actual pager device of yesteryear.  Today’s paging allows you to be informed as to the message status, allows you to reply to a page and even initiate a page to another OnPage user, all at your fingertips on your smartphone.

Thoughts From The CEO: Efficiency, Accountability & Reliability

judit

This past weekend I attended the Fraunhofer awards ceremony for the prestigious 2013 Joseph von Fraunhofer Prize for Science and Innovation in Hannover, Germany. The Prizes were given to four technology groups from different institutes around the world, working in different fields but with the same theme: developing new technologies that enhance Efficiency. As a spectator listening to the different group presentations (with a translator), it became very clear to me that indeed Efficiency is the word of the future! Efficiency is the goal! I recalled a conversation I had the prior week with the CIO of a large healthcare plan in Boston to whom I introduced our OnPage solution for Pager replacement on Smartphones. He said that based on their budget for 2014, they may need to cut some people, but still carry the same load.  Essentially be more efficient! Being efficient is facilitated by the use of new […] Read more »

Does Your Messaging Solution Archive Messages for HIPAA Compliance?

HIPAA Wording

Did you know that to be in complete HIPAA compliance you must adhere to the six year document retention requirement for information related to PHI (protected health information) specified within HIPAA? You may have thought that to be in compliance with HIPAA you only needed a messaging system with secure end to end encryption. This statement is not true. To be in complete HIPAA compliance you need to adhere to their archiving requirements and keep information related to PHI on record for at least six years. Messaging solutions on the market today that claim to be HIPAA compliant do not adhere to this archiving requirement. Secure SMS text for example does not adhere to this requirement as there is no way to store or audit past information, whether the message was sent encrypted or not. OnPage, a virtual pager application for smartphones has become an essential product for healthcare organizations […] Read more »
