The Doc Halo mobile phones are designed for improved communications in a hospital or clinical setting. They provide secure messaging and texting for healthcare employees within an organization. The messages are encrypted and HIPAA-compliant, unlike regular text messages and email. According to research, 80% of physicians are texting PHI. Policies against PHI communication are ineffective if there are no viable alternatives. This alternative solution is what the Doc Halo offers. Information concerning patients is kept secure. All physicians are available at the touch of a button. Time is not as wasted as it would be phone tag. Improved real time communication between doctors decreases the readmission rate, as patients receive better in-network care.
