Mobile App Helps Physicians Communicate "On the Go"

Share on Facebook
A new mobile application, DocBookMD, allows physicians to send and receive secure HIPAA-compliant patient information from a smartphone.

The application is free for physicians who are members of their county or state medical societies. All activity over the mobile app is run through a secure server with multiple encryption levels, and the data is stored on the server rather than the physician's mobile device.

The app's creators started the application so that physicians could handle non-emergency patient and hospital issues remotely. The app is currently available on the iPhone, iPad and Android.
