About the DocSite Registry

Join Our Mailing List

A Health 2.0 Information Technology Reality

By Staff Reportersstk127239rke

[What is DocSite?]

According to the website, www.DocSite.com is comprised of a passionate group of employees and customers focused on making better patient care easier for physicians across all specialties, and helping them get paid for the quantity and quality of care delivered. Physicians want to use Health IT, but rightly demand their investment be easy to use, provide immediate benefit to their patients and practice, and be affordable.

By Physicians, For Physicians

John Haughton MD, MS started working in Health IT twenty years ago as a young physician, but soon became frustrated with expensive and complex software applications delivering clinical value only after years of implementation. In 1997, he began developing an online patient registry to help physicians realize the value of using simple information technology to enhance their delivery of quality patient care.

The Creation

Encouragement from customers and colleagues led Dr. Haughton to form DocSite and create an affordable suite of tools usable by all physicians. Simple and affordable, the tools provide immediate clinical value, save time and improve care.

The Team

Today the DocSite team is a group of highly dedicated people who believe in “doing good while doing well”. They believe in their mission and understand the challenges customers face. Healthcare needs to work better and they are proud to be part of the solution.

New CMS Certification

According to the Pennsylvania State eHealth Initiative, December 9, 2008, DocSite just received CMS certification for its alternative Physician Quality Reporting Initiative [PQRI] reporting method program that allows Medicare participating physicians to qualify for a 1.5 percent Medicare fee-for-service bonus in 2008 by completing and submitting as few as 30 simple preventive care surveys through the DocSite registry.

Select Discounts Available

In a letter to members of the Pennsylvania State eHealth Initiative, Board Chairman Martin J. Ciccocioppo noted that DocSite – a PAeHI member organization – is offering this online reporting tool/program nationwide for $350 per submitting physician. DocSite has agreed to offer all Pennsylvania practicing physicians a 45 percent discount off of their normal $350 price. This drives the cost of participation down to $192.50 per submitting physician and represents the lowest negotiated price discount offered by DocSite for this service. Physicians only have until the end of this calendar year to take advantage of the 2008 1.5 percent CMS PQRI bonus opportunity.

Assessment

Making care easier, faster and better has not always been the foremost business problem in healthcare to solve. Effective Health IT solutions that truly improve care and save time must take into consideration patient safety, aging population, available broadband and continued healthcare financial pressure, along with the realization that physicians are healthcare experts not “computer-jocks” come together to demand effective solutions that truly improve care and save time.

Can a regional or national roll-out of the DocSite registry be imminent? Contact them for more info and feel free to report back to us.

Living Wills and Advanced Directives

Differs from HPOA

A lay or physician’s living will differs from a healthcare proxy in only one way, but it is a significant one.

The HPOA

A healthcare power of attorney [HPOA] grants the power holder the authority to make all decisions about his/her healthcare. Medical science has advanced remarkably of late; but so far, life still ends in death. The creator of a living will specifically reserves to him/herself the full decision, by advanced directive, all decisions about end of life treatment. If a patient is diagnosed with a condition so grave, such that the benefit of any medical treatment is only to “delay the actual moment of death,” the living will is called an “advanced directive.”  It specifically instructs the medical community to withdraw or withhold such treatment. 

Assessment

You will notice that all healthcare matters are still executed by the holder of the HPOA. The living will DOES NOT transfer these end of life decisions to the HPOA holder. The patient specifically retains this power solely for him/herself with a Living Will.
