Thomson Medical Centre Enables Secure and Compliant Staff Communication with NetSfere's Enterprise Messaging Platform
CHICAGO and SINGAPORE, Aug. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NetSfere, an award-winning, secure mobile messaging platform, today announced its partnership with Thomson Medical Pte Ltd (TMPL), a leading private healthcare group headquartered in Singapore, to implement its enterprise-grade secure messaging platform for internal communication and collaboration. TMPL operates Thomson Medical Centre (“TMC”), a private hospital in Singapore with more than 40 years of medical expertise in obstetrics, gynecology and pediatrics.
Respecting the importance of upholding data privacy as a healthcare institution, TMC is one of the first private hospitals in Singapore to make NetSfere’s secure, HIPAA and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant messaging service available to its employees and healthcare workers to protect the privacy of patient data and also enhance internal communications among its care and administrative teams.
As the adoption of digital technology becomes more prevalent, healthcare workers are increasingly turning to ubiquitous consumer-grade messaging apps for internal communications, that presents privacy risks and loss of patient’s trust for healthcare institutions. Through this partnership with NetSfere, teams at TMC will now have access to a highly secure and compliant mobile messaging platform that allows for instantaneous communication, improved collaboration and efficiency at all levels.
“As we embrace a digital-first era in healthcare, patients continue to place great value on the trust in healthcare providers to deliver proper care and manage their data securely,” said Ms. Cynthia Goh, Deputy Director, Management Information Systems at Thomson Medical. “NetSfere’s efficient and secure enterprise-class platform has met our data privacy requirements, supporting secure communications and effective collaboration that will empower our healthcare workers to generate successful clinical outcomes for all patients who have entrusted their care and wellbeing to us.”
“We’re pleased to work with Thomson Medical to help it establish a precedent of secure healthcare messaging in Singapore,” said Chee Leng Loy, Regionl Vice President for Asia Pacific and Middle East regions for Infinite Convergence. “NetSfere’s end-to-end encryption provides the security a hospital needs to protect its patients information, as compared to consumer-grade apps that we’ve seen compromise sensitive data and regulatory policies time and time again because they are not secure and compliant.”
NetSfere's cloud-based platform includes end-to-end encryption that complies with GDPR and other global regulatory requirements, providing healthcare providers, first responders and government workers with a secure communication option that offers the immediacy of instant messaging across multiple devices. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are able to communicate and consult with one another simultaneously while streamlining communications and operations.
NetSfere supports global cloud-based service availability, industry-leading encryption algorithms, IT administrative controls including high definition one-to-one and group voice and group video calling, video streaming and screen sharing to provide a seamless user experience in one encrypted platform to communicate and collaborate.
