HIPAA Compliant, Secure Texting App Doc Halo Lands Key Contract with Premier Healthcare Network
Date:3/21/2013

Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) March 21, 2013

Doc Halo, the secure healthcare texting app that allows physicians and medical professionals to communicate within a HIPAA-compliant platform, has announced that a renowned healthcare network, TriHealth, Inc., has agreed to offer the Doc Halo secure texting solution to the TriHealth network’s affiliated physicians.

With the Doc Halo secure texting app, physicians can transmit critical and timely information to other healthcare professionals connected to the Doc Halo system.

Co-founder and CEO of Doc Halo, Jose Barreau, MD, explained that Doc Halo provides efficiency, immediacy, privacy, and technology to an industry entrusted with the health and well-being of patients.

“As a physician of more than 20 years myself, I know first-hand the need to communicate immediately – and yet securely – with my colleagues. The benefits that the Doc Halo smartphone technology offers are significant.”

Dr. Barreau added that several key elements have driven the Doc Halo app development team from the beginning. “It was critical to us that we perfect the mobile app to ensure that its operation is flawless, its technology is superior, its user interface is intuitive, and that its privacy compliance is HIPAA-secure at every touch-point.”

Doc Halo President and Co-founder, Amit Gupta, MD elaborated, “Texting and smartphone technology have become second-thought to many of us. In our everyday lives, we can see the value of accuracy and efficiency when we text a friend, family member, or business colleague. Those same fundamentals are needed in the medical field. And yet, ensuring patients’ privacy is equally paramount. Doc Halo offers that needed secure physician texting solution.”

The popularity of smartphones, tablets, apps and innovative communications mediums is pervasive today in popular culture. Similarly in the healthcare industry, this technology is in demand.

Participants, presenters and exhibitors at the recent March 3-7, 2013 HIMSS Conference in New Orleans generated a multitude of articles, blog posts, tweets, and Facebook and Google+ posts about mobile health (mHealth), health information exchange (HIT), electronic health records (EHR), electronic medical records (EMR), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Dr. Barreau commented, “There are many popular healthcare apps in the smartphone world. The bulk of those options have been, and are, in the areas of patient-to-patient apps, physician-to-public apps, and public-to-public apps. Doc Halo offers an important, new secure texting app technology.”

TriHealth serves the Greater Cincinnati area and is a unified health system of physicians, hospitals and communities.
