SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Doximity, the largest and fastest-growing secure network for physicians, today shared its record-setting 2013 growth numbers. The network more than doubled in size in the past year to 250,000 members -- outgrowing such esteemed companies and organizations as Epocrates, Epic, and the American Medical Association -- and established itself as the nation's leading medical collaborative.
"With Obamacare and baby boomers filling patient waiting rooms, maintaining a high standard of care demands ever greater efficiency from our healthcare professionals," said Jeff Tangney, CEO and founder of Doximity. "Doctors need a secure way to connect and collaborate. We built Doximity as a place where physicians can communicate quickly and seamlessly across teams, hospitals and entire health systems."
In addition to providing a digital home for over a third of practicing U.S. physicians, Doximity achieved a number of other milestones in 2013:
During the past year, the network has also announced marquee partnerships with the Cleveland Clinic and U.S. News & World Report. Doximity attributes its growing healthcare clout to a remarkably accomplished user base. "We have assembled a veritable dream team of American physicians," said Tangney. "Collectively they have authored more than a million peer-reviewed publications, have received 120,000 NIH grants, and include 200 inductees into the Institute of Medicine."
Launched in 2011, Doximity (www.doximity.com) connects physicians to make them more successful and productive. With more than 35 percent of U.S. physicians as members, collaborating across every specialty and academic medical center, Doximity is the largest secure medical network on the Internet. Doximity is headquartered in Silicon Valley and was created by the founders of Epocrates (NASDAQ: EPOC), now owned by athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN).
