The Clear Choice
in Medical Messaging

URGIENT is more secure, accurate and reliable than answering services

Medical Answering Services

As you have probably experienced, answering services are expensive, prone to human error, do not manage the message lifecycle, and are often not even HIPAA compliant.

Here's the thing, answering services rely on a third person to construe, document and then route each message to its intended recipient. Each step in this process increases the likelihood that the message will arrive with errors, if it even arrives at all.

Once the answering service sends the message it is up to the recipient to manage the message to closure. Often this is done with home-grown tools which offer limited visability, questionable HIPAA compliance, and sketchy security.

In contrast, the URGIENT platform:

✓ Costs a fraction of typical answering services
✓ Is far more accurate, reliable and secure
✓ Efficiently manages the full lifecycle of the message
✓ Is HIPAA compliant
URGIENT adds efficiency and lowers risk compared to typical HIPAA compliant messaging apps

Typical Medical Messaging Apps

The URGIENT platform was designed strictly for secure, HIPAA compliant paging (critical messaging) and easily co-exists with other messaging platforms (EHR, E-mail, VoiceMail, SharePoint, etc...)

Typical medical messaging apps want to be "communication hubs", their broad scope:

✗ Introduces large technology overlaps

✗ Creates end-user confusion/inefficiency from overlapping active message queues.

✗ Adds legal complexity in managing the lifecycle of the data.

✗ Raises compliance risks from storage of PHI on user devices.

✗ Adds administrative burdens due to managing the app's software lifecycle against disparate end-user devices.

✗ Increases the risk that critical messages will be missed due to all the "noise" in the system.

Many messaging apps require the installation of management software, mobile apps, and even on-premises servers.

In contrast, the URGIENT platform:

✓ Does not store data on user devices
✓ Does not require any software to be installed
✓ Works the same on any device
✓ Does not overlap with existing technology
✓ Easily integrates with existing technology
✓ Minimizes end user inefficiency and confusion
✓ Reduces risk
✓ Minimizes complexity
✓ Reduces burdens

URGIENT is more secure and reliable than physical pagers

Physical Pagers

Physical pagers have been the staple in critical communications for more than 50 years, so much so, the concept of paging is synonymous with critical communications. This is most especially true in the healthcare industry, where a 2017 study published in the Journal of Hospital Medicine found that nearly 80% of hospitals still use physical pagers, even though the pager's time has clearly passed.

Today, the ability of legacy paging technology to securely and reliably deliver critical messages is functionally inadequate. The coverage of legacy paging networks is extremely limited, leaving many markets without any paging coverage and other markets with only spotty paging coverage by a single carrier.

Legacy pagers, for the most part, are not secure. These pagers have no authentication controls, they receive (some even transmit) and store their pages without any encryption. This 2018 article demonstates how a person with a little bit of skill, a computer and a $30 antenna can passively scan hospital's legacy paging system for PHI. For healthcare entities that require HIPAA compliance, legacy paging systems simply are not HIPAA compliant.

Acquiring and provisioning pagers is a slow, expensive and labor intensive process.

Lastly, a pager is yet another device that your users must carry.

In contrast, the URGIENT platform:

✓ Runs over cellular/WiFi networks
✓ Uses the smartphones your users already have
✓ Stores no data on users' phones
✓ Encrypts all data while at rest and in transit
✓ Allows the user to self register their own telephone
✓ Is HIPAA compliant
