As more and more hospitals struggle to manage their A&E waiting lists, both doctors and patients are being plunged into despair. Even though the mantra should always be ‘patient first or patient-centric’, it’s becoming harder for clinicians to look after people in the way they would like. And it doesn’t help when hard-working emergency doctors are fined £100 in car parking charges after over-running a 12 hour shift by just 8 minutes, as happened to Dr Ratwatte in north London recently.
So how can doctors improve their working lives for the good of their patients? This is exactly why our founder Matt Jaggard, an Orthopaedic surgeon developed DocComs; the secure clinical communications app that allows all medical staff to reach a doctor and to chat in real time via their mobile phones.
We’ve spent the past 12 months refining the app to make it the Rolls Royce of comms apps, integrating with existing hospital operating systems and enabling high res images to be sent securely to colleagues so they can offer a second opinion without delay. As it’s designed by a doctor, it includes essential information to allow medical teams to manage patients efficiently and give them better experience when receiving treatment.
Patient details entered into the app are held securely, removing the endless need for paper that’s so wasteful and out of date in today’s world. With everything at their fingertips, medics save time and can free up beds by not having to search for information – they can retrieve it instantly or they can check with colleagues.
The most reassuring part of our innovative app is that doctors can still access information even if other systems suffer problems. All they need is their NHS email address and the app does all the rest – linking them to their network and enabling them to set up cases discussions.
It’s GDPR compliant with nothing held on the phone so there is no danger of looking for a family photo and accidentally bringing up a medical image! No one else can access DocComs without a password. It separates work and personal life effortlessly to give medical professionals the opportunity for a better work life balance. Think of it like a banking app which allows you secure access to your account – DocComs offers medical staff all the information they need securely on their phone in order to make important decisions about patient care even whilst they are on the go.
With everything held securely on the servers and certified by G-Cloud, it’s changing the lives of doctors around the country.
