ATSU-ASDOH has recently been named a partner by CellTrust Corporation, a recognized worldwide leader in secure mobile messaging and secure applications for mobile phones, in a Text2Floss pilot study.
The Text2Floss study will devise a series of text message programs designed to reach, remind, and educate current patients and the underserved about preventative and ongoing health and wellness initiatives.
The project was founded by Tony S. Hashemian, D.D.S., special assistant to the dean, global oral health, ASDOH.
“The Mission of the Global Oral Health program at ASDOH is to create Global Oral Health Solutions through improving oral health, leadership development, innovation, dental education, new technology, and the promotion of peace through collaboration and the provision of compassionate care to the underserved locally and worldwide,” said Dr. Hashemian. “Health and wellness organizations are in need of a mobile solution that turns the already ubiquitous SMS text messaging medium into a powerful, HIPAA-compliant communications tool; enabling healthcare organizations and vendors to communicate patient data and other medical information via secure text messaging to clinicians’ and patients’ mobile devices.”
