"The Doc Halo real-time secure texting app aligns physicians and provides a HIPAA-compliant texting solution for the physicians, their staffs, and for the complete healthcare network,” coommented Dr. Jose Barreau, Co-founder and CEO of Doc Halo.
Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
Doc Halo, the professional standard for HIPAA secure texting for physicians, staffs, and healthcare organizations, announced today that the company has seen a significant increase in the number of physicians and comprehensive healthcare networks interested in the pioneering HIPAA-compliant mobile communications product during the first quarter of 2013. 100% of trial users have now registered for the HIPAA-compliant communications texting app.
The demand for registrations of the secure texting app by physicians and complete healthcare networks has been evidenced again at the Doc Halo booth #8552 during the first days of the HIMSS 2013 Conference in New Orleans this week.
Doc Halo Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Jose Barreau, MD, remarked that feedback from physicians and comprehensive healthcare networks who have come-on-board this quarter is that Doc Halo is the much-needed solution they have been looking for and that the app aligns physicians and provides a HIPAA compliant texting option for themselves, their staffs, and for complete healthcare networks.”
Dr. Barreau attributes the enthusiastic response to the Doc Halo secure texting app by physicians and healthcare organizations to four specific variables.
First, there is a real need for a physician-based texting communication app that is compliant with HIPAA requirements and yet, at the same time, allows for critical, timely, efficient, private communication of patient health information from physician to physician and within comprehensive healthcare organizations.
Secondly, Dr. Barreau explains that users are citing that “the Doc Halo mobile app tackles the healthcare industry’s mission of reducing readmissions, lowering costs and strategically aligning physicians.”
Doc Halo users indicate a third reason for the record number of app registrations. “Physicians see the Doc Halo app as a solution for a secure healthcare texting option but also, and importantly, the operation of the app is perceived as ‘quote’ flawless, seamless and intuitive,” Dr. Barreau stated.
“That technical assurance is vital for immediate patient care and treatment. Ultimately, this feature results in better patient safety outcomes, and that is, first and foremost, our #1 mission at Doc Halo.”
The fourth characteristic that Doc Halo app users have reported as being critical in their decision to register for the app is that Doc Halo addresses a need for alignment between physicians, hospitals, and healthcare organizations. Dr. Barreau explained, “Hospital systems and healthcare networks have to be assured that they can provide a user-friendly, IT-safe, and secure texting option for their physicians ‘within’ the organization’s own group.”
