Medici, an Austin, TX-based global HIPAA-compliant mobile app with secure text, voice and video messaging and allows doctors to provide virtual healthcare to patients, today announced its acquisition of HIPAA-secure messaging company DocbookMD. DocbookMD’s secure healthcare messaging app features real-time alerts to streamline communication, accelerate workflows and enhance team collaboration. For Medici, the acquisition will offer doctors and other healthcare providers access to a broad range of mobile communication and telehealth tools that will fundamentally change how doctors practice medicine.
DockbookMD Acquisition Plans
As part of the acquisition, Medici will assume DocbookMD’s technical assets, people and customer contracts including those with state medical associations. Medici plans to provide continued technology support for DocbookMD. Existing users and partners should expect uninterrupted usage of data, functionality, and connectivity. Medici acquires DocbookMD from Scrypts, Inc., which acquired DocbookMD in early 2016. Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
DocbookMD Secure Messaging App Background
Founded in 2008, Austin-based DocbookMD allows providers to send HIPAA-secure messages containing patient information and images such as X-rays, EKGs or photos from anywhere. Providers can set a 5 or 30-minute priority on a message and be actively notified if unread. All messages include time-stamp details, read status and can be forwarded to colleagues, printed or even electronically saved to the patient chart. To date, the DocbookMD app is endorsed by more than 42 state medical associations and 400 county medical associations. The mobile app supports more than 25,000 active doctors.
Medici CEO & Founder, Clinton Phillips stated, “We are delighted to be acquiring one of the most trusted resources for doctors. Medici and DocbookMD are so well-aligned with each other, and with the interests of medical associations in helping doctors live and practice at the highest level.”
Medici provides a global HIPAA-compliant mobile app with secure text, voice and video messaging and allows doctors to provide virtual healthcare to patients. In addition to offering colleague-communication capabilities, the platform offers more than a dozen innovative features including in-app billing, e-prescribe prescriptions, and e-refer referrals. For Medici, the acquisition of DocbookMD is the company’s first major acquisition following a recent $22 million private capitalization round.
