DocbookMD, a physician-run mobile health technology company based in Austin, Texas, has entered into a partnership with MAP Communications, a national call center provider that supports thousands of medical groups and hospitals throughout the United States.
Thousands of physicians can now receive answering service messages securely on their mobile device via DocbookMD in partnership with MAP Communications
“Through our partnership with MAP Communications, physicians around the country will be able to receive their answering service messages from their mobile device,” said Tim Gueramy, MD, CEO and co-founder of DocbookMD, in a statement.

Gueramy said that this will help hospitals and groups more efficiently communicate with their physicians about critical patient needs and most importantly this partnership will potentially accelerate the care patients receive.
Thanks to DocbookMD’s standard RESTful API, MAP Communications and other answering service providers would be able to simplify the medical communication process and send critical communication messages to physicians and designated medical staff securely to their mobile device.
This would also allow physicians to more easily call back patients in critical need directly from their phone, quickly forward messages to colleagues and maintain a digital record of messages sent at any time of the day from anywhere.
“We are excited to offer a new service to our customers,” said Don Thaler, SVP of sales for MAP Communications.
Thaler said that MAP Communications’ deep national presence and strong reputation to provide reliable support to hospitals and medical groups around the country is a natural fit with DocbookMD to help improve communication throughout the healthcare industry.
Tim Gueramy said that DocbookMD gives answering service providers the extra security they need to send messages to a mobile device.
Earlier in December, DocbookMD had announced that it has integrated its popular mobile communication application with Austin Radiological Association (ARA), Austin’s largest independent radiological provider, to allow for real-time notifications of read X-rays and scans sent directly to a physician’s mobile device using a special ring tone.
