DocbookMD is being used by nearly 9,000 Texas physicians and more than 25,000 physicians nationwide to communicate important clinical information with colleagues and staff in a fast, HIPAA-secure way. In fact, it's working so well for them that many of those physicians are leading the charge to have their hospital, group, or accountable care organization (ACO) adopt the Enterprise version of DocbookMD.
To date, Docbook Enterprise has been implemented at institutions in Texas (Memorial Hermann Physician Network in Houston, Seton Healthcare in Austin, Arise Management in Austin, Hospital Internists of Austin, Medical Clinics of Houston, Lakeway Regional Hospital in Austin, and Austin Diagnostic Clinic), Montana, Colorado, Connecticut, and Indiana. Pilot implementations are under way in Vermont and New Jersey.
"In each case, physicians who had been introduced to DocbookMD through their state or county medical society liked it so much, they brought it to their hospital or group to solve the need for a secure way to communicate with other physicians and with their own staff," says DocbookMD cofounder Tracey Haas, DO. "It is important for physicians to take the lead in choosing solutions and technologies that work for them and fit seamlessly into their current workflow."
Docbook Enterprise offers increased ability to integrate with other technologies, including connecting with answering services, lab and radiology departments, health plans, ADT reports, and billing software, and virtually any other existing information technology. Docbook Enterprise provides a common dashboard to deliver critical results directly to the ordering physician and can aid in care coordination in many arenas — especially when an ACO is involved.
To introduce the enterprise version of DocbookMD to your hospital or large group, contact DocbookMD Director of Partnerships Chad Shepler by email or phone at (512) 383-5822.
