Digital health incubator Rock Health is hosting the 2012 Health Innovation Summit this week in San Francisco. In a series of posts, I’ll be profiling some of the interesting new health companies represented at the summit. You can browse all of the startups I liked from the Rock Health summit here.
Currently in beta form, Docphin is a free online dashboard that compiles medical research and news from journals, magazines, blogs and Twitter feeds and adds search, filter and sort functions for personalization.
It was launched in November by four young entrepreneurs, including a physician/clinical researcher, to solve the challenge of helping physicians easily find the research they need to stay up-to-date. Now, the next step is taking the platform mobile.
The company announced at the 2012 Health Innovation Summit that its iPhone app will launch soon, with an iPad app coming later. Like the online dashboard, the app will primarily target physicians that are members of academic institutions that have subscriptions to the big academic journals.
Docphin’s technology was refined through partnerships with the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Michigan and the University of California-San Diego. The company was selected to take part in Rock Health’s spring 2012 incubation program.
Check out a demo of the new app below.
