The Doximity app provides a way for you to call patients using your cell phone, while displaying your office number. This app is supported by an external vendor directly (Doximity) and not Baystate I&T. It’s your personal choice whether you use it. All Baystate’s policies for patient communication and protection of patient information still apply. At this point, we do not believe teleheath, texting or faxing features also included in the app, are compliant with Baystate policy. Please use AmericanWell for all telehealth. Recommended use of Doximity is only for placing phone calls where a change in Caller ID is needed.
Baystate employees: information about Doximity is available on the I&T Training Site for Remote Work Tools on the COVID-19 Information Page on The Hub.
If you have questions, comments or see need for one-way texting or faxing feature, please email: [email protected]
