OnPage is Chosen by Boston Children’s Hospital to Provide Secure Paging for Smartphones

Doctors can now stay in touch at all times with secure, HIPPA-compliant priority messaging without carrying a traditional pager device

WALTHAM, Mass. -January 22, 2013 —Onset Technology, creator of OnPage™  Priority Messaging, announced today that Boston Children’s Hospital, ranked number one pediatric hospital in the country by U.S. News and World Report, has chosen OnPage Priority Messaging to replace its traditional pagers. The dedicated paging devices carried by physicians everywhere will no longer be necessary as their functionality is integrated into their smartphones. “Using OnPage, this progressive, forward thinking hospital is now bringing the same level of innovation to address its communication needs as it did to medical care for over a century” says Judit Sharon, CEO of Onset Technology.

Traditional pagers are used for alpha-numeric 240 character-max one way communication. Pages sent to traditional pagers require the physician to call back to retrieve the actual message and acknowledge receipt. The OnPage service officiates the process to save precious time; it sends the actual message in its entirety to the intended smartphone and continuously alerts the physician until the message is acknowledged, and automatically keeps the sender informed as to the status of the message, from receipt to actually being read.

Boston Children’s hospital will enjoy many benefits using the OnPage service, including the ability to communicate immediately and securely with its doctors through both cell service and WI-FI, send continuous paging alerts until message receipt, receive actual read acknowledgement automatically when a doctors read their messages, create and manage groups and escalation groups through the OnPage Console, keep a log of the entire communication chain for traceability, and all with HIPAA-compliant encryption for security. Furthermore, since OnPage runs on the most popular smartphones, there is no longer the need for the doctors to carry an additional pager device.

“We are delighted to have the world-renowned Boston Children’s Hospital entrust their priority communications to OnPage,” says Judit Sharon, CEO of Onset Technology, creator of OnPage. “They tested our product against a major competitor over a large array of metrics and found OnPage to be superior. Forward-thinking hospitals and clinics are looking for HIPAA-compliant, secure, reliable, and traceable communication. We are proud to be their solution of choice.”

OnPage converts any iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, or Android device into a secure, fault-tolerant communication system. Unlike traditional pagers, it guarantees that no messages will ever be missed. With OnPage, a message sent is a message received. You can count on it! And just in case, you also get the audit trail to prove it.

BoxTone Secures, Manages and Supports Enterprise iPads at the Point of Patient Care, Demonstrating at HIMSS, February 20-24, 2011

ORLANDO – February 21, 2011 – (HIMSS; Booth# 218- New & Emerging Technology Pavilion), BoxTone®, the expert in proactive Mobile Service Management (MSM) software, is demonstrating at HIMSS its latest mobile management platform for securing, managing and supporting mobile devices, from smartphones to tablets, and mobile applications that are being deployed for use at the point of patient care.

Enterprise mobile devices, including the iPad and other tablet computers are becoming preferred data collection and information access tools for doctors, nurses and clinicians at the point of care. In fact, BoxTone reported in December 2010 that a survey of 950 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) members indicated that iPad deployments are accelerating in large part due to the mobile device’s compelling point-of-care applications and uses.

But when a successful patient outcome is on the line, highly reliable mobile service quality, effective support and security count. Therefore healthcare IT organizations must manage the full mobile lifecycle from deployment through operational support to retirement. Once securely deployed, the mobile devices and applications must be continuously monitored, proactively identifying service issues and automating Level 1-3 support to reduce downtime while also ensuring that devices are secured and compliant with all appropriate IT policies.

At HIMSS, Booth #218 – New & Emerging Technology Pavilion, BoxTone is demonstrating how its MSM software solution can 24/7 enable, deploy, support, audit and protect access to the iPad and other new tablets and mobile devices within the healthcare industry to help ensure optimal services levels and maximum security, at the lowest cost and risk.

BoxTone will present the following demonstration at HIMSS 2011:
