DocbookMD Use Case:

When Pamela entered the emergency room feeling like she might faint, she had no idea a new app on the emergency physician’s smartphone would make a difference in her care – and her life.

The Story

Late one evening Pamela entered the emergency room feeling like she might faint. Staffing the ER that night, Dr. Singh suspected a problem with Pamela’s heart and ordered an EKG. At first, the bedside nurse reported that Pamela was simply suffering from tachycardia, but a closer examination of the EKG by Dr. Singh raised suspicion of something more serious.

The Status Quo

Typically, Dr. Singh would stabilize a patient like Pamela, and keep her heart rate slow while a cardiologist was called in to examine her. This could take more than an hour, while she waits, connected to a telemetry device, anxious and uncomfortable.

The DocbookMD Difference

Using DocbookMD, Dr. Singh quickly sought confirmation of her diagnosis from the on-call cardiologist (while he was at home) by sending him a high-resolution image of the EKG. Within seconds, the cardiologist confirmed that Pamela’s heart was actually in supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and required immediate intervention. With the consulting cardiologist in the palm of his hand, Dr. Singh initiated an IV medication that quickly corrected the abnormal rhythm. He was able to discharge Pamela home directly from the ER. This saved time, money, and further discomfort for the patient, the hospital and everyone involved in her care. All through the secure and simple communication tool, DocbookMD. Communication saves lives. Just ask Dr. Singh.
