Lansing MI (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
More and more physicians are tapping into the convenience of smartphones and tablets to share information, and federal incentives have prompted medical practices to implement electronic health records and e-prescribing, as well.
This year’s Michigan ‘HIT’ Symposium will feature two of the most highly sought after physician speakers in the country - doctor couple Dr. Tim Gueramy and Dr. Tracey Haas co-creators of an app called DOCBOOKMD.
Currently doctors in 23 states use the DocBookMD app and over 100 medical societies across the country have partnered with DocBookMD. “The most important benefit of the app is for the patients,” explains Dr. Haas “We support doctors so they can better serve their patients.” DocBookMD runs on iPhone, iPad and Android. The app is provided at no charge to physicians who are members of their local or state medical societies through sponsorship from medical liability companies and hospitals.
What does the app do? The app allows doctors to send and receive secure HIPAA compliant patient information right from an iPhone or iPad. Dr. Gueramy explains: “We can send and receive things like X-Rays, lab results, or EKG’s and have a response back from another physician in minutes. The app allows us to more effectively communicate which means we can more effectively treat our patients.”
Dr. Gueramy and Dr. Haas will be speaking at this year’s Symposium on the topic of “Using Mobile Technology To Enhance Patient Care” on JUNE 13th.
