Wilmington, N.C. – DocsInk® has been named the 2014 Emerging Company Category winner of the prestigious Coastal Entrepreneur Award.

DocsInk’s revolutionary approach to healthcare communication and connectivity continues to draw positive recognition and reviews from medical providers and industry leaders alike. On May 22, 2014, DocsInk® was named the winner of the 2014 Coastal Entrepreneur Award (CEA) in the Emerging Company Category. Julie Thomas, DocsInk® CEO, accepted the award on behalf of her company at the annual CEA banquet, run by the University of North Carolina at Wilmington Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Greater Wilmington Business Journal, at UNCW’s Burney Center. The DocsInk® application directly addresses the push towards improving population health, decreasing per capita costs, and maximizing revenue and reimbursement for medical providers.

During her CEA interview, Thomas announced DocsInk’s plans to continue to grow their nationwide network of medical providers and organizations. Thomas stated, “The DocsInk® application connects providers in a secure ‘Facebook-style’ manner that is groundbreaking to our healthcare system. We are partnering with medical professionals all across the country to close the long-standing gaps in healthcare communication.” DocsInk®Chief Medical Officer Dr. Josh Dobstaff added, “DocsInk® allows physicians to easily share patient information across geographic and affiliation boundaries, and instantly notify primary care physicians when their patients have been admitted or discharged from the hospital.”

DocsInk’s intuitive mobile charge capture platform has also proven to increase physician’s revenue by an average of 15% within 45 days. Charges are securely sent via provider’s mobile devices within seconds for immediate billing which reduces the average revenue cycle by 75%. The number of DocsInk® subscribers has continued to grow by 25% over the past three months in large part to their ability to easily interface with any practice management system to further maximize billing efficiency.

Emphasizing the importance of simplicity of use and widespread adoption, Thomas continued by saying, “Beyond all the communication and financial benefits providers enjoy through DocsInk®, one of the largest compliments we received was from a doctor who called our support number on a Sunday afternoon just to say DocsInk® was the best solution he had used during his fourteen years of practicing medicine.” Thomas concluded, “This kind of unsolicited feedback is proof positive we are on the right track of balancing clinical workflow needs with a solution that renders real positive results for the healthcare industry and patient population alike.
