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.
