It's an honor to be included in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
VaporStream, a leading provider of electronic conversation software, has been included in the list of "Cool Vendors in Healthcare Providers" published on April 2, 2010 by Jonathan Edwards et al of Gartner, Inc.
“It's an honor to be included in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner,” says VaporStream CEO Joseph Collins. “We believe it proves the value of VaporStream to healthcare providers. VaporStream can deliver what hospitals and healthcare providers don't have today, secure, private and confidential text communications. VaporStream is going to change the way we communicate and it's wonderful to see Gartner recognize our company as an innovative, intriguing and impactful vendor."
Unlike e-mail, which is “electronic documentation” VaporStream emails are safe, secure and intentionally not stored or documented - just like a verbal conversation. A VaporStream email conversation does not leave a residual message and vaporizes after it is read. VaporStream emails cannot be cc’ed, forwarded, saved or printed so the conversation remains with the respondents and avoids miscommunication since other people don’t see “just one part” of the conversation.
A VaporStream conversation uses 256 bit encryption, resides in RAM, and the head and body are separated in transit. VaporStream helps solves many of the most critical communication and collaboration needs of an organization - that are not being, and cannot be met by e-mail. First, it has most of the advantages of a verbal conversatiom - but is much more convenient. Second, it reduces the growing expense of e-mail. And, VaporStream minimizes the risk and high cost of miscommunication and litigation. VaporStream is not designed to eliminate e-mail, but to decrease the overall volume of e-
mail and its inherent cost, while fostering better, healthier internal conversations, and reducing the potential cost for litigation.
And it is proving to be impressive in many industries, such as healthcare. For accountability and quality of care in the medical profession, many communications within a hospital need to be captured and recorded, and become part of the medical record. However, it is also necessary to have email conversations that should be off the record and private to protect patient confidentiality. VaporStream is recordless and secure.
VaporStream operates in Software as a Service (SaaS) mode and integrates with Microsoft Outlook, Lotus Notes and all major mobile platforms like BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, iPhone, etc.
