Recognizing the growing need for electronic tools to provide patient-centered care, Doctella applies the tenets of PFE through the use of innovative technology to launch a web and mobile patient engagement platform that showcases surgery checklists and the Patient Passport. Doctella’s surgery checklists help patients receive the critical information they need to make informed decisions about their care and provides patients with steps to follow before a medical procedure to help them prepare for their upcoming care. Through the use of innovative technology, Doctella aims to increase patient-centered care and decrease healthcare costs while also improving the patient-doctor relationship and overall patient care.

Doctella is a simple way to improve patient engagement and patient safety by using proven concepts. Doctella co-founders include Peter Pronovost MD, PhD who received a MacArthur genius award for demonstrating the use of checklists in the ICU. Noted surgeon-writer, Atul Gawande wrote: “Pronovost’s work has already saved more lives than that of any laboratory scientist in the past decade.” Doctella builds upon this foundation and further innovates by bringing checklists directly to patients. With Doctella, hospitals and clinical practices can provide their patients with an easy to use mobile and web solution, containing medical procedure checklists and the Patient Passport, that enables patients to become better partners with their healthcare team and be more satisfied with their care.
