COVID UPDATE: We have stopped accepting requests to join the One-Way Texting Beta Program because we are focusing all our efforts and resources on rolling out Doximity Dialer Video in response to COVID-19. We are working as fast as we can to help everyone. We appreciate your patience and thank you for all that you're doing.
The One Way Texting option allows you to send a text message to your patient's cell phone while still protecting your private cell phone number. Built-in templates make it easy to get through your patient list quickly.
We treat messages sent through the Dialer text feature as PHI and secure them accordingly on our platform. However, because recipients may not secure their device, prior to displaying the first message to the recipient on our platform we ask recipients to consent to receive messages from their healthcare provider via text message.
