DocuTAP offers a proprietary electronic workflow solution to healthcare clinics, with an emphasis on urgent care clinics. The DocuTAP system is designed to improve the quality of patient care, ease the workload on care providers and increase clinics’ profitability. Since moving into the South Dakota Technology Business Center in 2004, the company has experienced significant growth in both revenues and employees. But with the incubator’s help, DocuTAP has managed this growth quite well.

Incubator role: While a SDTBC client, DocuTAP took advantage of several incubator networking opportunities, which contributed to its growth. "Rich Naser, executive director of the incubator, provided us with connections we would never have made without his assistance," says DocuTAP CEO, Eric McDonald. "Rich facilitated introductions for us to a variety of business leaders, potential employees and outside vendors that have shaped DocuTAP into the company it is today." In 2007, the firm moved out of the incubator, but it didn’t have to go far; with the incubator’s assistance, DocuTAP moved into a facility just across the parking lot from SDTBC. "We were able to stay on the same network, so our move was seamless and our customers didn’t even know we moved," McDonald says.
