SANTA MONICA, Calif.--()--TigerConnect, provider of healthcare’s most advanced, reliable, and widely adopted clinical communications and collaboration (CC&C) solution, today announced a partnership and system integration with OpenTempo, a leading innovator in physician scheduling and clinical labor analytics.

This integration allows joint customers of TigerConnect and OpenTempo to leverage real-time access to physician schedules, powering role-based messaging. Physicians utilize OpenTempo every day to manage their complex schedules, reducing administrative time spent on scheduling and improving operational efficiencies for their organizations. The TigerConnect integration with OpenTempo works by pairing designated roles in TigerConnect, such as the cardiologist on-call, with the OpenTempo schedule. This ensures secure messages, voice calls, and video conversations are directed to the right physician, at the right time. No more wasted time referencing whiteboards or printed schedules when tracking down on-call physicians.

“At TigerConnect we are on a mission to radically improve healthcare communications, but this is a mission we can’t achieve alone given the complexity of the problem,” said Brad Brooks, co-founder and CEO, TigerConnect. “Partners like OpenTempo help us ensure communications always reach the right physician regardless of shift schedules. In an industry where every second counts, this integration can quite literally be life changing.”

“It’s critical that communication tools like TigerConnect have visibility into the clinical resources that are available at any given time within the physician and staff scheduling environment,” said Andy Comeau, Chief Executive Officer at OpenTempo. “The integration between OpenTempo and TigerConnect facilitates needed communication between providers. We are thrilled to take this step in improving provider’s ability to communicate efficiently.”
