Doximity can be best described as a physician social network “plus.” Like all social networks, the app gives users the ability to connect with each other on a one-to-one basis. Where it really has value though is in the features that have been layered on top of this.
First is a more comprehensive peer-to-peer communication toolkit that includes a comprehensive search function to help you find any physician you may want to communicate with as well as a free, HIPAA compliant e-fax tool integrated into the direct messaging feature. Second are communities of physicians, typically formed around shared interests, where discussion and debate about everything from the fairly unique financial challenges faced by many physicians, to the latest biologic to emerge from a promising clinical trial.
Overall, by combining its large and growing membership base with tools that users will find useful on a day-to-day basis, and well-designed forums for community formation and discussion, Doximity definitely has value to add to a physician’s app portfolio.
