Doximity Inc. (NASDAQ: DOCS) is a social networking platform exclusively designed for U.S. healthcare professionals. It's a cross between Meta Platforms Inc. (NASDAQ: META) owned Facebook and Microsoft Co. (NASDAQ: MSFT) owned LinkedIn. The community has grown to over 580,000 medical providers as the company has integrated artificial intelligence (AI) and automation functions.

Doximity competes with telehealth platforms in the medical sector, such as Teladoc Health Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), American Well Co. (NYSE: AMWL) and privately held Sermo, which purports to have over 1 million physicians worldwide on its network. 

The Growing Uses of Doximity

[content-module:CompanyOverview|NASDAQ`:DOCS] Doximity offers a wide range of tools that enable medical professionals to get the latest healthcare and medical news, as well as career advancement and professional development help. The platform also enables physicians to conduct virtual visits.

Professionals can use the app to send HIPAA-compliant messaging about patient care, connect with people, grow their professional medical network, share medical records and research, communicate with peers, make phone calls and send faxes. Doctors can also connect with patients confidentially with the app's dialer without revealing their phone numbers.

One testimonial from Dr. Gavin Harris mentions how he was able to transfer a patient to another hospital and fax over patient information and medical records all through the Doximity app to a colleague admitting the patient into the ICU at 3 a.m.

The Growing Doximity Community

Doximity is a one-stop shop for members of the medical community. Its members include not only doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals but also hospitals, healthcare organizations, research groups, insurance carriers and pharmaceutical companies. Doximity boasts an 80% membership of doctors and a 60% market share of nurse practitioners and physician assistants (over 550,000) in the country. The more healthcare professionals use it, the more it grows. Doximity claims to be the #1 app for clinicians.

Integrating Proximity AI Integrations into Doximity
