Doxy.me is a popular HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform used by doctors and therapists. It only works through web browsers – like Firefox, Chrome, or Safari – rather than as an app you download to your smartphone or computer. This means keeping your browser updated is crucial to protecting your privacy while online with your doctor. The telemedicine app is free for patients. Health providers and clinics must pay for the service. Doxy.me saw huge growth in 2020 because of the pandemic -- going from 80,000 users to over 750,000 in around six months. We’ll give them plenty of props for a clever April Fools joke they pulled announcing the release of their telemedicine app for dogs, Dogsee.me. Cute, and a fundraiser for a local animal rescue. Winning!

O que pode acontecer se algo der errado?

When we reviewed Doxy.me in 2020, we found a number of worrying privacy and security concerns. In our conversations with the company, a lot of these seemed to come from the growing pains of adding so many users so quickly during the pandemic. We’re really happy to see Doxy.me appears to have cleaned up many of the concerns we had last year. They now require a strong password to login by healthcare providers, which they didn’t last year. Because patients don’t need to set up an account with Doxy.me to use the service (only healthcare providers do) they do not collect patient data, which is nice. There a still a couple of things users should be mindful of. Because Doxy.me runs only a web browser, it is crucial users keep their browsers up-to-date to ensure the best possible security. And a couple tips to help keep your telehealth session secure: Ask you healthcare professional if they've secured the session on their end, don't use public WiFi, be aware of any personally identifiable information in your background or on your screen, and turn of any nearby device that could record your conversation.
