Can I send the photos through other apps?
DocToDoctor has been developed to prevent sharing patient information on any other network or social media, for your own protection.
How the Patient Consent is obtained?
DocToDoctor prepares a Consent for the patient in the web page. The patient signs a printed copy of the consent, and the app stores a photo of the signed copy in a secure Server. Also, Verbal consent can be recorded from patient or legally authorized relatives.
Do the files identify the patient?
The app is designed so the clinical information can not be assigned to any specific person. The patient always remains anonymous.
How do I know which patient each case refers to?
Only the Patient Record number is stored, encrypted in the mobile, but appears pseudonymized in the Web and in the Server.
But does the patient data identify the Health Centre?
The less the data you keep of patients, the better protected they are. You can add a basic code for your own Centre identification.
Are updates compulsory?
DocToDoctor is an information security tool. It needs to be updated to be secure, like antivirus programs. If you do not, the app will be temporarily blocked.
