Founded in 2011, Doximity’s HIPAA-secure platform helps clinicians stay up to speed on the latest medical information, identify and connect with specialists for patient referrals, and manage their online medical CVs—all from the convenience of their smartphones or PCs. Based in San Francisco, Doximity is the largest professional medical network with more than 70% of all U.S. physicians as members.
This year, Doximity published a first-of-its kind research with the “2019 Telemedicine and Locum Tenens Opportunities Study.” This is the first published analysis of U.S. physician interest in telemedicine and how that correlates with the significant growth in telemedicine patient visits. The “Doximity Dialer” also reached a new milestone this year. Since launching in 2016, “Dialer” has helped place more than 5.6 million calls and saved approximately 28 million minutes of physician time. Dialer helps connect patients and physicians more efficiently by facilitating calls between doctors and patients, enabling doctors to dial directly from their smartphones, while routing the call through the hospital’s landline.
Doximity also empowers other key players in the healthcare ecosystem as evident by its new solution for hospital marketers: Patient Connect. Hospitals and health systems across the country now have the capability to schedule appointments for patients with physicians while searching physician profile pages on usnews.com. The new tool gives hospitals a fast and seamless way to book an appointment for a patient while searching for a physician or specialist on U.S. News & World Report who matches the patient’s healthcare needs. By partnering with Doximity, U.S. News & World Report offers a free-to-use online directory of more than 900,000 practicing physicians.
