5 Things You Didn’t Know About the Doximity App

Jan 05, 2018 - Doximity Blog


Doximity’s mission is to help clinicians save time and be more productive. With the Doximity app you can do just that from wherever you are, on the convenience of your smartphone. Here are 5 features about our app you may have not known about.

1. Fax
While faxing might seem like the most obsolete, mundane task, it’s probably not going anywhere anytime soon. It’s still one of the few forms of ‘modern’ communication that counts as HIPAA Compliant. And since clinicians need to fill out an average of 20,000 forms every year, chances are your hospital fax is pretty busy.

With the Doximity app, you can send and receive faxes from your iPhone or Android. Doximity gives every physician, NP, PA and pharmacist a free, HIPAA-secure efax number. You can electronically fax colleagues and sign documents with just a finger through the app.

2. Newsfeed

The homepage of the Doximity app is the newsfeed, a scrolling collection of articles customized to each Doximity member based upon their speciality, network of colleagues, and clinical interests. Doximity members can engage in discussions on every article, and also earn CME credits from medical articles featured on the newsfeed.

3. Colleaguing

Doximity is the largest social network of healthcare professionals, with over 80% of all US doctors and a growing number of NPs, PAs, and Pharmacists. Many members find and connect with each other on Doximity from their workplace or career contacts. The Doximity app also offers a “People You May Know” feature, which suggests adding colleagues you know from school, residency, and current employment.

4. Alumni Networking

Curious to see where your friends from medical school ended up? There’s a quick and easy way to find out using the Doximity app. Simply click on your profile, scroll down and tap on the medical school you went to. This will direct you to an alumni map that shows other Doximity members across the country with your graduation date. You can filter your search by school, graduation year, and more to find and reconnect with past classmates.

5. Search

Doximity’s search feature can be used in a number of beneficial ways. Using the search bar at the top of the app, you can search for specialists in your area, jobs by location and specialty, referrals that you need in an unfamiliar area, research and news relevant to you, and much more. The search bar is a powerful tool!

To see these features for yourself, download the Doximity App for free.

Survive the Holidays with These 3 Doximity Tools

Dec 22, 2017 - Doximity Blog


The holiday season is here! For most people that means heading home early and taking some days off to enjoy holiday vacation. For those in the field of medicine, though, work continues despite the holiday season.

However, with the help of your handy smartphone, it’s easier than ever to manage patient care from home. As a HIPAA-secure medical network, we’re here to help you survive the holidays with 3 useful tools.

1. Doximity Dialer

Make patients calls from the comfort of your home.

Make calls that patients will answer. Call patients from your cellphone using the Doximity Dialer app. Patients see the Caller ID of your office when they receive the call, and your personal number remains private. Take Dr. James Youngston’s word for it, “I love this app. I can call patients from my cell and it shows my office number on caller ID. Patients never get my cell number again!”

Bonus tip: The Dialer app integrates with the Epic Haiku app, so you can make calls right from your EHR. Here’s how to set it up.

2. Doximity Fax

Send and receive faxes without using a fax machine.

Do you ever feel chained to your fax machine? With Doximity Fax, you can send and receive faxes right through your cell phone with the Doximity app. Each Doximity account comes with a free e-fax number for every physician, NP, PA and pharmacist. Send, receive, sign, date, and mark-up faxes to your liking. No need to stay late in the office when you have a pocket fax machine!

3. Career Navigator

Negotiate your salary and keep abreast of new job openings across the country.

New year, new job? Whether you’re job hunting or just keeping your options open, get the most out of your search with Career Navigator. Search for jobs in your specialty and location, and even see compensation trends for your specialty across the country. Take a page from Dr. Athanasios Tsiatis’ playbook: “I needed regional and national salary information to inform stakeholders during salary negotiations, and the data provided on Doximity made the conversation extremely straightforward.”
