DocCom's UK founder visiting Silicon Valley to spread the word

Published on 14 January 2011

DocCom is an online networking platform that connects healthcare organisations and healtchare professionals to deliver detailed business intelligence, safey and prevention, quality assurance, increased productivity, ease of deployment and cost and efficiency savings. Messages are sent and delivered to the right people through their desired medium, be it online, email, SMS text or Social Network.

As their website says....

DocCom was founded in 2007 by two doctors frustrated by a gaping hole in NHS internal communication that threatened patient care. The pair witnessed this problem first-hand through their work as doctors at University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust. As a result they developed the DocCom solution, a web-based system that enabled Health care organisations and their workers to communicate effectively for the first time.

NHS junior doctors have been the first to benefit. However, DocCom's intelligent solutions met a wider need across the health service with other healthcare professionals, addressing problems aggravated by poor communication such as filing rota gaps and delivering critical safety information. Today Doccom is a powerful tool for all professionals who depend on high-quality, fast and secure internal communication to deliver high quality safe and timely patient care.

Future Health Mission is an initiative run by Polecat in collaboration with Technology Strategy Board, UK Trade & Investment and key private sector sponsors including Microsoft to identify and support the best fast-growing 'HealthTech' technology companies in the UK.
