Introducing TigerText

We are pleased to announce that TigerText is now available for anyone at Boston Children’s Hospital to use for secure text messaging. TigerText is a free app that can be downloaded to your Android or iOS device (iPhone/iPad) as well as accessed from any web browser.

TigerText is HIPAA complaint and can be a very useful tool for quick two-way communications among individuals as well as groups. This is an approved and secure method for protected health information to be sent via text messages, images, videos, and audio recordings easily among BCH employees. Users can see when their messages are delivered and read to ensure proper message receipt.

Quick download instructions can be found HERE.

Username: BCH email address (first.last@childrens.harvard.edu

Quick Tips:

1.Make sure you connect to BCH Wifi for more reliable message delivery.

2.Place the TigerText app on your mobile device’s front page.

3.Use a picture of yourself as your profile image to ensure correct sender/receiver.

4.To remain HIPAA compliant, use the camera within TigerText for photos & videos.

5.As the number of users grow, it is best for now to ensure the person you are texting is an active user on TigerText before starting a conversation. If they are not, they will receive a secure message via their Children’s email instead of on the mobile app.

6.Do not use standard text messaging for anything containing protected health information (more details here: Boston Children's Text Messaging Policy).
