Custom Ringtones Added to DocbookMD

Physicians can now customize their iOS ringtones to differentiate new DocbookMD messages from other messages they receive. The new feature resides in the Settings menu within the app. Choose from 40 different sound notification options, and assign a different tone to each of the three message priority times. From an iPhone or iPad, tap on Settings from the main menu, and decide which ringtone you want for messages sent with the following priorities: 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or none.

Beyond the new ringtone customization feature, the settings section of DocbookMD has additional tools, including: 

  • Enable messaging: Turn DocbookMD messages receipt on and off.
  • Enhanced notifications: Enter an email address and/or phone number to be notified of an unread DocbookMD message waiting for your attention. No protected health information is sent via email or standard text, simply a notification that you have a pending DocbookMD message.
  • Lock app with PIN: An additional level of HIPAA security allows you to create and use a PIN to gain access to the DocbookMD app. It's a quick way to further protect yourself and your patients.
  • Refresh data: Tap to ensure the most up-to-date TMA directory is at your fingertips.

DocbookMD is available to all TMA members as a free member benefit. Across the country, more than 25,000 physicians in 40 states use DocbookMD, further connecting the community of medicine. 

DocbookMD is available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices as well as PC and Mac via the new web version. The app can be downloaded using the Apple App Store or Google Play.

Docbook Enterprise offers a secure way for groups and hospitals to meet a wide variety of workflow needs and enhance existing technology systems. To bring 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.
