This is a second episode from the short series about why doctors leave clinical practice to work in digital health. GI pediatric specialist Michael Docktor was, until recently, one of the driving forces of digital health innovation at Boston’s Children’s Hospital. In this episode, he shares his insight into how paperwork is complicating the coordination and management of patient care. To solve that, he helped design Dock.Health - a simple, HIPAA compliant task management and collaboration platform designed for healthcare. Michael still partially works in clinical practice but is spending most of his time as the CEO of Dock.Health. In this episode, Michael commented on the changes in healthcare due to COVID-19 and talked about the meaning of tech solutions for increased empowerment of patients.

Dear Friends & Colleagues,On Friday March 27th 2020, I launched a limited podcast series addressing how the COVID-19 pandemic is reframing American healthcare. You can find the introductory episodehere. During this series, I interviewed forward-thinking
When you visit a website, do you use the navigation menu? Or do you head to the lower right corner of your screen? T hat corner is where a little bit of internet magic happens and it’s becoming more prevalent, and having a great impact, in healthcare. It’s where you can get the answers and information you need just by typing in a few simple words or a question.
That little chatbot can be repeated millions and billions of times and provide more natural human interactions and benefits to both the users and the organization that deployed it.
To learn more about this technology and how it’s being applied in healthcare, I invited Dr. John Reeves to come share some insights.
