SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- CellTrust Corporation, the recognized worldwide leader in secure mobile messaging and secure applications for mobile phones announced today that the company has teamed up with A.T. Still University (ATSU), Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH) to devise a series of text message programs designed to reach, educate, and remind current patients and the underserved, to promote preventative and ongoing health and wellness initiatives. ATSU will be represented at the upcoming AEEDC Dubai 2012 UAE international dental conference later this month.
The pilot Text2Floss project was founded by Tony S. Hashemian, D.D.S. , Assistant Dean to Global Oral Health at ASDOH, who explained, "The Mission of the Global Oral Health program at Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health is to create Global Oral Health Solutions through improving oral health, leadership development, innovation, dental education, new technology, and the promotion of peace through collaboration and the provision of compassionate care to the underserved locally and worldwide."
Dr. Hashemian continued, "Health and wellness organizations are in need of a mobile solution that turns the already ubiquitous SMS text messaging medium into a powerful, HIPAA-compliant communications tool; enabling healthcare organizations and vendors to communicate patient data and other medical information via secure text messaging to clinicians' and patients' mobile devices."
CellTrust's founder and CEO, Sean Moshir, added, "With a secure SMS solution, organizations are able to send and receive text messages with real-time Protected Health Information (PHI) from personal mobile phones, web-portal interfaces, email exchange servers, electronic medical records, customer relationship management systems, lab systems, and other applications."
By directly providing physicians and clinicians with required patient information to make informed decisions, a secure SMS solution improves the quality of healthcare with decreased response times and accurate decision-making, allowing for quicker interventions and improved patient outcome.
