bnetTV speaks with Dr. Michael Eiffert of DoctorCom at the 2012 mHealth Summit held in Washington DC and gives us a overview of what they do.
DoctorCom was founded in 2010 by Dr. Michael Eiffert, a board certified Internal Medicine physician practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Company has grown to include a diverse group of engineers, healthcare providers and marketing specialists. Customers include dentists, physicians, sleep centers and labs throughout the United States.
DoctorCom is your solution to becoming HIPAA-compliant in your communications with colleagues. Most healthcare professionals know that text messaging is not HIPAA-compliant. Until DoctorCom, there wasn't been an easy solution. Our iPhone and Android apps are free for doctors, NPs and PAs and allow for secure messaging that can include Protected Health Information (PHI). The messaging system also lets you share files with colleagues, securely, without having to use non-secure formats, such as email.
The apps also allow you to call colleagues and patients without ever having to reveal your own contact information. There's even a separate voicemail system within the app, so it keeps your professional life separated from your private life – all on a single device.
DoctorCom is a great practice-building tool: when colleagues see you on DoctorCom they are more likely to refer to you, because it's simple and convenient. In other words, you and your practice capture new business just by having your free account with DoctorCom!
