Version 5.3 of TMA's endorsed secure communication app DocbookMD is now available for free in the Apple App Store and on Google Play. This latest update sees some major improvements to the user interface, most noticeably in the organization and navigation of messages and upgrades for your "favorites" list.
Among other new features, version 5.3 now stores your favorites in the DocbookMD cloud, synced with any device you log into, and persistent when uninstalling or upgrading the app.
In many situations, texting is the fastest and most efficient way to send information, and reports show that texting among physicians is widespread and that physicians are texting clinical information. Physicians who text each other clinical information risk exposing themselves to HIPAA privacy and security violations, but DocbookMD mitigates that risk by combining the ease and mobility of texting within a HIPAA-secure framework.
DocbookMD is a free benefit of your TMA membership that you can start taking advantage of immediately. Across the country, DocbookMD is offered as a free benefit through county and state medical societies and is now used by more than 20,000 physicians in 38 states.
To begin using DocbookMD, download the app to your smartphone or tablet and follow the registration instructions. For more information or help registering, contact the TMA Knowledge Center, and be sure to view these video tutorials on how to use DocbookMD.
