The HIPAA and GDPR compliant cloud-based healthcare provider / patient communication platform docdok is deeply integrated into healthcare primary software systems. Used clinically as well as for studies, it uniquely closes the communication and information gap between patients and key players of the healthcare system (hospitals, physicians, pharmaceutical & medtech companies, and health insurers). docdok is already active in 4 countries and is being used by numerous (university) hospitals, pharmaceutical and medtech companies as well as by physicians in ambulatory settings. Together with IBM, ETH Zurich and the University Hospital of Zurich, docdok.health recently won a coveted Innosuisse grant from the Swiss Government in order to further develop and clinically validate a novel digital therapeutics solution for asthma and COPD patients.
