CellTrust Uses SMS for Healthcare Initiative
This platform is ideal for dentists, university dental programs, and not-for-profit organizations that are engaged in programs associated with children's oral health.
CellTrust specializes in providing secure mobile communication and was recently recognized as the 52nd fastest growing telecommunications company in the US. Commenting on the rationale of the release, CellTrust says that Americans send 2.27 trillion text messages each year.
The company is leveraging the popularity of text messages and using its platform to send and receive text messages. In January 2012, CellTrust's platform was used for the Text2Floss text messaging program with A.T. Still University (ATSU), Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health (ASDOH).
This program helped in the promotion of preventative and ongoing health and wellness initiatives for current patients and the underserved.
"Our healthcare initiative, which started in 2009, has been tremendously successful and we continue to move ahead in the healthcare and oral health sector as well as with organizations focused on youth education," said CellTrust CEO and chairman, Sean Moshir (News - Alert). "SMS is a fast and effective way to reach consumers. Consider that, on average, text messages are opened within four minutes of receipt and 95 percent of text messages are read."
CellTrust recently partnered with Kids Voting Arizona and the Arizona Bar Foundation to provide a text messaging-based youth polling program.
This program was offered at the foundation's partner site lawforkids.org, and was part of 2012’s Kids Voting Arizona initiative.
CellTrust was in news last month when TMC (News - Alert), a global, integrated media company, named the CellTrust Secure Mobile Transaction Server as the recipient of the 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.
