Digital health startup Doximity and the Cleveland Clinic are collaborating on a new digital platform that would give physicians a more flexible and social way to earn continuing medical education credits on Doximity’s social network.

Doximity, which runs a HIPAA-compliant social platform and app where physicians can connect or collaborate on patient treatment, announced Monday it will provide medical research accredited by the Clinic.

As reported by VentureBeat in coverage of its HealthBeat 2013 conference, Doximity CEO Jeff Tangey said the new CME platform is meant to be a more convenient way for physicians to earn CME credits, also removing the hassle of paperwork by tracking credits online. It’s another way for physicians to stay up-to-date on the latest research, instead of having to complete an online module or attend a live presentation.

“The escalating depth, pace and hyper-specialization of medicine demand that physician education adapt to an increasingly mobile, tech-savvy and team-based healthcare workforce,” said Dr. William Carey, director of the Clinic’s Center for Continuing Education, in a statement. “This new approach to CME extends the social elements central to medical school and residency training – collaborative group learning and cross-disciplinary discussion – to the practicing physician learner.”

Doximity says it has about 170,000 U.S. physicians currently on its platform.
