Dallas, TX – February 20, 2017: QliqSOFT, Inc., a leading provider of clinical communications solutions today announces it has been awarded a group purchasing agreement with Vizient, Inc. to offer Qliq, the company’s HIPAA-compliant secure texting service for healthcare, as well as OnCall Scheduling, and the CareChannels clinical collaboration solution. The agreement provides enhanced savings to Vizient’s diverse membership and customer base, which includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers.“We are extremely excited about our agreement with Vizient to offer our flagship secure texting solution to its membership at contract pricing. This validates QliqSOFT’s model of providing the most robust cloud-based secure texting service that does not store PHI in the cloud,” said Krishna Kurapati, cybersecurity expert and QliqSOFT CEO.Over 90% of hospitals in the United States still rely on outdated pager systems to communicate with care team members. That communication is one way and limits the level of care team collaboration that can occur around a patient. Because of a desire to improve patient outcomes and to reduce errors, many clinicians rely on traditional text messaging to communicate about clinical decisions. This practice of covert texting not only puts sensitive Protected Health Information (PHI) at risk but could also lead to hefty HIPAA fines.The agreement with Vizient expands QliqSOFT’s reach in the healthcare industry for secure texting and CareChannels solutions that solve many challenges organizations face with Value-Based Care programs. The result is an overall increase in the quality of collaborative care, better facilitation bundled payment processing, as well as a reduction in errors, readmission rates, and overall cost of providing care.About QliqSOFT, Inc.QliqSOFT is THE Clinical Collaboration Solution, with mobile apps for secure messaging, clinical collaboration, on-call scheduling, HIPAA compliant mobile scan and sign, and pager replacement. Our HIPAA compliant platform helps doctors and nurses connect with each other, patients, and caregivers in entirely new ways.

When thinking about a healthcare emergency preparedness plan, how much does compliance matter in your disaster communications? If your organization is in the throes of a power outage from heavy storms or a cyber attack that’s left your network down, thoughts of compliance may not be top of mind.
Prior to the pandemic, telehealth visits ─ delivering patient-provider visits virtually ─ was an afterthought in the care continuum — ill-regarded and little-used beyond patients in rural areas who had few care choices. Virtual visits comprised less than 1% of all outpatient visits. Private insurers generally follow guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), which allowed telehealth in only limited circumstances and paid at 30% below in-office reimbursement rates.
