DocBookMD is a free app that allows physicians to communicate, collaborate and coordinate patient care. It is available to physicians who are members of their county or state medical societies.
Founded by a board-certified family physician and a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, the app allows the transfer of data through a secure server, instead of the user’s mobile device, with multiple encryption levels.
All users are required to sign a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) business service agreement that outlines information about data security and responsibilities to keep patient information confidential.
DocBookMD is available for iPhones, iPads and Android phones. For more information on how to register for and download the app, visit http://docbookmd.com/.
