A new mobile app, DocbookMD, addresses the many issues surrounding the convenience, speed, and legality of physician-to-physician communication. It's your latest membership benefit from TMA.
Developed by Austin husband and wife physicians Tim Gueramy, MD, and Tracey Haas, DO, DocbookMD eliminates the red tape and overcomplicated systems that govern your communication with other physicians. By letting you send and receive other vital patient information instantly via your smartphone or tablet, DocbookMD helps you enhance patient care, make your practice more efficient, gain and give referrals, and avoid mistakes.
"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, and even pictures of wounds and x-rays. And all of this is sent securely and in a way that meets HIPAA requirements," Dr. Gueramy said.
With DocbookMD, a regional network of physician colleagues is at your fingertips for consultation and referrals – all at the point of care and in the blink of an eye.
