Doximity Dialer is loaded with new features that are bound to be crowd-pleasers for doctors and patients alike.
Last year, Doximity launched a new video calling capability to its popular telehealth app feature called Doximity Dialer. It is a simple, secure telemedicine tool that enables doctors and other healthcare professionals to call their patients (via voice or video) directly from their own smartphones with the click of a button. Recent updates to the app now make it even easier to connect. This article reviews the new features as well as highlights how Dialer is different from other telemedicine applications.

A bit about Doximity
Doximity is the leading digital platform for medical professionals. I think of it as a LinkedIn for doctors. Its network members include over 70% of U.S. physicians across all specialties and practice areas. Its platform provides digital tools ‘built for medicine,’ enabling them to do many of the things that are important in their professional lives:
- collaborate with colleagues
- stay up-to-date with the latest medical news and research
- manage their careers
- conduct virtual patient visits
I have been a member of Doximity from its earliest days. I even had the pleasure of attending some user meetings a number of years ago to help shape their offerings. Doximity has kept its focus on its primary customer — the practicing physician. I believe that is why we see so many user-friendly additions to the services they add. The Dialer updates are a good example.
Dialer enterprise for hospitals
Doximity Dialer has grown in popularity amongst doctors since its launch and now some hospitals are deploying its enterprise version of the tool, called Dialer Enterprise.
