Always wary of patient privacy and data security, medical communications is a big problem for doctors. Not anymore, with the introduction of Doximity.
Doximity is a network for physicians, sort of like a Facebook or LinkedIn for doctors only. It is a free communication platform for healthcare professionals across the United States. The application is available on the Web, iPhone, iPad and devices running on Android, Google's operating system.
As a member, you will get to connect with over 567,000 US physician colleagues in 87 specialties as well as being able to connect with former or current medical school classmates and residents.
For instance, you are looking to connect with Eric Brown MD, all you need do is to key in his name, his specialty, languages spoken, clinical interests and you would have access to his contact information. Members can also exchange HIPAA-secure messages, send faxes, share private phone lists, back lines and pagers with physician colleagues you select and confirm.
Basically, Doximity helps physicians connect with convenience and stay current with the latest treatment guidelines and medical news in your specialty. Information on the site is secure and encrypted with 256-bit Advance Encryption Standard. Sign-up is 100% free and takes just 1 minute to join.
