DoctorCom® Launches Free HIPAA-Compliant Apps for Android and iPhone

DoctorCom Rolls Out Smartphone Apps to Complement Its Web-Based Medical and Dental X-Ray File Sharing and Virtual Answering Service

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - DoctorCom, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its free HIPAA-compliant healthcare practice management smartphone apps for both the Android and iPhone platforms. The app provides doctors, dentists and all healthcare professionals with click-to-call, secure messaging and file-sharing with colleagues. The privacy features enable communications with colleagues and patients without compromising the privacy of your personal contact information. The app is also integrated with the DoctorCom Answering Service. In an interview, DoctorCom CEO and Founder, Dr. Michael Eiffert emphasized the importance of the DoctorCom app and the DoctorCom Answering Service, which provides a secure mobile solution for healthcare practice management that also integrates with Electronic Medical Records (EMRs). "All communications involving patient care should be included in the medical record, yet, until now, accomplishing this required entering these interactions into the record manually. DoctorCom's answering service becomes an efficient tool for EMR documentation. It is affordable at $74.99/month for a small office and is scalable to meet the healthcare IT needs of offices ranging from the solo practitioner to large, multispecialty practices. An easy-to-use scheduling interface ensures that colleagues and patients reach the right doctor every time. Messages are stored in our cloud-based solution for safe keeping and future reference."

Regarding the strategic importance of the launch to the Company, Eiffert added, "DoctorCom is already a leader in innovative healthcare communications and practice management solutions and the release of our mobile apps allows us to serve our loyal and growing customer base more effectively. This is a 'product of the year' in healthcare IT and dental IT and is just the beginning of our technology pipeline that we will be rolling out over the ensuing months."

DoctorCom users can download the app in the Android and iPhone app stores. The app is always free for credentialed healthcare providers. If you haven't yet established an account, just visit us at www.mdcom.com and request an invite or call toll free at 1-855-244-2737.
