After many years of practicing medicine I’ve made some simple observations. First, patients want access to their healthcare team. Second, healthcare professionals want to provide patient care in a timely and efficient manner. Today, neither need is being met.
Recognizing that most people have their smartphone with them at all times, we built DocDock to optimize communication between medical practices and their patients. Now, patients can conveniently and quickly communicate with their medical provider when they need it most.
Richard Abrams, M.D. is co-founder and CEO of DocDock Inc. He is a practicing physician focusing on preventive medicine. Dr. Abrams has been a pioneer in the use of electronic medical records and mobile health technology. He developed DocDock so that busy physicians and equally busy patients could communicate more efficiently and improve satisfaction among all participants in health care. His previous successful start-up company, RMD Networks, used web-based technology to improve healthcare communications. DocDock is the logical next step taking advantage of mobile technology.
