Physician communications platform Doximity has created a new group function to make it easier for physicians to obtain consults, comments and other information from peers, according to company CEO Jeff Tangney. The platform just connected with med schools at the University of California, San Francisco and Stanford University to create special groups of alumni from those institutions.
The idea: Physicians often prefer to get advice from colleagues they went to medical school with, and the new function will make it easier for them to identify those peers. "The kind of consulting and querying that we do on Doximity often happens across alumni networks. We make it easier to find that person and have that discussion," Tangney told FierceMobileHealthcare.
