The background for creating DocComs
DocComs was founded in response to a need for a secure and NHS-approved communication system with clinical functionality.
While working as a trainee surgeon, founder Matt Jaggard became frustrated with the lack of secure, fit-for-purpose communication tools among healthcare staff. Patient care depends on clinical teams being able to communicate quickly. It requires the whole team to converse without barriers while securing the patient data.
Healthcare staff are constantly moving around in large hospital buildings as they treat their patients. A fast and secure mobile communication system to manage patients, discuss treatment and task workflow is vital to improve efficiency, work life balance and patient care.
DocComs is engineered around the daily working demands of healthcare staff managing tasks, patient discussions & treatment pathways. The protection that DocComs affords its users gives clinicians peace of mind with their patient data, adhering to NHS and data guidelines of confidentiality and safety.
