Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 31, 2014
DocbookMD, a physician-centered mobile health technology company based in Austin, Texas, announced that after perfecting their secure, mobile communication platform that physicians across the country have helped shape over the past five years, they are now poised to be the de facto connection for any third party that relies on quick access to physicians.
Already directly connecting with healthcare services like radiology, labs, and answering services via their API, DocbookMD now plans to expand its clinical integrations to multiple arenas, such as care coordination technologies, health plans and health information exchanges.
“Unlike some health communication apps that focus on monetizing physician data, DocbookMD is the first mobile health app focused 100% on linking physicians to the rest of the healthcare world. While other technologies focus on gathering and documenting patient data, DocbookMD has captured the attention and trust of physicians in a way others have not been able to. It is more important now than ever to keep physicians at the center of patient care, and DocbookMD gives them an easy way to do just that,” says Dr. Tim Gueramy, MD, CEO and Co-Founder of DocbookMD. “By bringing all of these technologies together in one single dashboard, we make it easy for physicians to respond quickly to urgent matters that will ultimately speed up bottlenecks in healthcare delivery.”
Instead of having multiple technologies and information sources to monitor, DocbookMD users will be able to access a single source for all urgent messages, allowing them to more easily manage their workflow. The DocbookMD dashboard brings a host of connections – all in a HIPAA-secure package:
- Urgent messages, questions and referrals from colleagues
- Reports from lab and radiology departments on STAT and critical values
- Answering service messages
- Real-time communication with care team members
- Integrated care coordination with the ability to share documents and respond to order clarification and prior authorization requests, patient updates and new reports
According to Gueramy, the end-goal is to allow for a comprehensive approach to a community’s healthcare in what is commonly known as ‘Population-Based Healthcare.’ “From becoming the communication backbone for Accountable Care Organizations – just like we’re doing right now in Texas – to providing care coordination tools and critical statistical reporting on physician-patient activity, DocbookMD will play a vital role in shaping healthcare in communities across the country.”
