SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Doximity, the professional
network for physicians, today announced more than 50
developer partners have built applications on the Doximity
API, giving medical application and software developers the ability
to seamlessly integrate their products with the only verified,
HIPAA-secure professional network for physicians.
With Obamacare introducing 30 million new patients to healthcare,
physicians will need to interface with an expanded and increasingly
complex system. Doximity's secure, single sign-on platform takes on a
fragmented ecosystem of medical applications, reducing the

In just two years, over 220,000 physicians have joined Doximity to
connect with colleagues, collaborate on tough cases, check schedules,
and securely coordinate patient care. With more than 30% of all U.S.
doctors as members, the service is beginning to achieve the proportions
and potential of a true healthcare platform.
"The Doximity API allows physicians to quickly sign up for our
collaborative medical imaging service," said Michael Pan, CEO of
Nephosity. "Additionally, the Doximity API enables us to securely verify
their identity and populate their credentials."
For app developers, the Doximity OAuth API eliminates the need to
develop a physician credentialing system, saving developers substantial
time and money, and enabling them to scale up quickly and across
multiple platforms simultaneously. Partners range from major players
like US News & World Report and 4 of the top 5 medical schools to
startups like DICOM Grid, DocSpot, Figure1, Image32, itMD, MedConcert,
Nephosity, and SmartSignOut.
