"In a city known for successful startups, it's quite an honor to be named as one of the best."
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
DocBookMD, a HIPAA-compliant mobile application, has been named to the Austin A-List, the Austin Chamber of Commerce’s compilation of the city’s hottest startup companies.
“In a city known for successful startups, it’s quite an honor to be named as one of the best,” said Dr. Tim Gueramy, DocBookMD co-founder. “It’s humbling to think that just 2 years ago we launched the application and today we more than 100,000 physicians who are part of a medical society have access to DocBookMD.”
More than 80 medical societies in 20 states now offer DocBookMD as a free member benefit to physicians. DocBookMD is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android phones. To download the mobile application, visit the App store on your smartphone.
A time saver for physicians, patients also are getting care faster as DocBookMD speeds communication. Doctors are now able to send HIPAA-complaint text messages, X-rays, charts and lab results easily to each other just by using the application.
In addition to text messages and photos, DocBookMD also allows physicians to:
- assign an urgency setting to outgoing text messages and confirm receipt
- search a local pharmacy directory, and
- search a local medical society directory to locate other doctors by name, location or specialty.
The Austin Chamber of Commerce developed the A-list to increase visibility of startup companies who are seeking funding. The first annual list was issued in early 2012.
An exclusive HIPAA compliant smartphone platform designed by and for physicians, creating secure networks for physicians to share patient information and collaborate with their medical colleagues. DocBookMD is offered through county and state medical societies to their members and is currently available throughout 20 states. For more information, please visit: docbookmd.com.
