MEMBERS-ONLY APP MAKES PHYSICIANS BETTER, HAPPIER, SAFER
Imagine if you had a tool with you always that made it easier for you to care for patients while on call, kept your office clear of patients who really don’t need to be seen, and kept you out of legal hot water with the feds. If you’re one of the 80 percent of physicians who uses a smart phone, you have one of those tools in your purse or hanging on your belt. If you’re a TMA member, that is. TMA and our county medical societies are working with DocBookMD, an Austin company founded by TMA members Tim Gueramy, MD, and Tracy Haas, DO, to bring you that service for free. DocBookMD offers a HIPAA-compliant text messaging system that physicians can use for patient referrals. Using smart phones’ built-in cameras, physicians can safely share key data — like EKG strips or x-rays — to help them make better decisions. Sign up for DocBookMD today.
