Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2014

DocbookMD, a HIPAA-secure mobile communications solution created by and for physicians and medical organizations, announced it has signed an agreement to distribute MedPage Today’s breaking medical news to users of its popular mobile app.

“DocbookMD is quickly becoming a must-have tool to help physicians around the country take care of their patients,” says Chad Shepler, Director of Partnerships at DocbookMD. “Now, through our partnership with MedPage Today, physicians will have unparalleled access to real-time news related to their practice specialty.”

MedPage Today, which was co-developed by MedPage Today, LLC and the Perelman School of Medicine at The University of Pennsylvania, is a trusted news service for physicians that provides a clinical perspective on the breaking medical news their patients are reading.

With a simple tap on the DocbookMD menu, physicians can access an embedded feed of news and articles from MedPage Today to stay abreast of industry trends of interest to their patients. To take advantage of this new feature, physicians must download the latest version of DocbookMD from the App Store or Google Play.

DocbookMD has made several recent strategic additions to its HIPAA-compliant communication and data-sharing solution. For instance, in early January, DocbookMD announced it partnered with MAP Communications, a national answering service and call center, to allow physicians and designated medical staff to receive secure, critical communications on their mobile devices. The new feature allows physicians to more easily call back patients in critical need directly from their phone, quickly forward messages to colleagues and maintain a digital record of messages sent at any time of the day from anywhere.

DocbookMD is the only secure mobile communications app exclusively endorsed by medical societies in 39 states, which today allows almost 300,000 active, verified physicians to download and use the app for free.
