What exactly does the DocbookMD app do?

DocbookMD is a HIPAA compliant messaging app for physicians and their CareTeam members. We help medical staff save time and prevent delays at point-of-care.

Features include -

Physician Directory

Access up-to-date phone, fax and address information for colleagues in your region from your mobile device. Search for a physician fast by last or first name, specialty or affiliation. DocbookMD partners exclusively with medical societies to constantly update physician information in our directory.

Physician Profiles

View a photo and get detailed information about your colleagues, including up-to-date phone, fax and address information, specialties, affiliations. Contact colleagues directly and invite other physicians to join DocbookMD from their profile page. Physician profile information is provided exclusively to DocbookMD from medical societies so it is always up-to-date.

Secure Messaging

Send and receive HIPAA-secure messages and images, including X-rays, EKGs and other critical patient images instantly via DocbookMD. A custom alert sounds on your mobile device to let you know when you have a new DocbookMD message waiting.

Attach Images

Exchange X-rays, EKGs and other critical patient images with your colleagues.

Communication with Your CareTeam

Invite nurses, PAs, and other office staff to join you on DocbookMD with the CareTeam feature. Physicians remain at the center of patient care and can use DocbookMD to coordinate care across any type of practice setting–even without an EMR.

Assign Message Urgency

Set a five or 30-minute priority for messages that require an immediate response. When a new DocbookMD message is sent to you or your colleagues you’ll receive a special alert letting you know you have a high-priority message. If you don’t receive a response to your message in the designated time-frame, you will receive a notification.
