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!
