I met Michael Docktor a few years ago when I was consulting to Boston Children’s Hospital on digital health and he was a gastroenterologist and leader of an innovation team there. As a digital native, he was among many physicians in his generation who couldn’t understand –and wouldn’t put up with– the disconnect between the smooth, high quality experience he had on his iPhone and the comparative Dark Ages of hospital IT systems, even at the top rated pediatric hospital in the country.
He co-founded Dock Health to help doctors get away from PostIt notes and scratch pads and shift to a simple, HIPAA-compliant approach to managing daily administrative tasks.
In this episode of the HealthBiz podcast, we talk about what it means to grow up with the name doctor, what he learned about physician needs at Boston Children’s, and his vision and progress to date at Dock Health.
