In many situations, texting is the fastest and most efficient way of sending information. Reports show that texting among physicians is widespread and that they are texting clinical information — whether or not it is legal to do so. Physicians who text each other clinical information risk exposing themselves to the privacy and security violations of HIPAA.But DocbookMD is changing all that. Combining the ease and mobility of texting within a HIPAA-secure app now gives physicians the best of both worlds.
DocbookMD offers physicians:
“DocbookMD allows you to look up another doctor at the point of care. You can then either call the physician or send a text message with room numbers, medical record numbers, even pictures of wounds and x-rays. And all of this is sent securely and in a way that meets HIPAA requirements,” -Tim Gueramy, MD, orthopedic surgeon and cofounder of DocbookMD
Think the feds aren't serious about enforcing HIPAA privacy violations? Think again.
This free TMA member benefit just keeps getting better! With the latest update, physicians can now invite their nurses, PAs, and other office staff to join them on DocbookMD via the new Care Team feature.
“We understand doctors and nurses want to share information about their patients via text or email, but that is not secure in standard formats. Messaging through DocbookMD allows them to comply with privacy laws, while still having the ease of sending a quick message.” -Tracey Haas, DO, family physician and chief medical officer of DocbookMD
