Docquity is a mobile application for :
- Doctor’s discussion
- Medical cases
- Second opinion for doctors
In a nutshell, Docquity is a medical education and knowledge sharing platform, exclusively for doctors.
This app is popular in Malaysia, India and especially in Indonesia. Primarily, this app facilitates doctors to do CME courses for free.
Besides, it’s one of the best apps for discussing medical cases with other experienced doctors from the same or different specialization.
Creating an effective solution for such a unique yet technically-complex niche is often intimidating, yet Docquity has been successful in the same.
Let’s discuss the factors that led to this massive success for Docquity among the medical professionals’ community.
Why Docquity App Started?
Indranil Roychowdhury, the founder of Docquity app, nearly lost his father in 2011. He had to be suddenly taken to the hospital after experiencing a rapid drop in blood pressure and severe chest Pain.
The senior doctor, who examined the symptoms, diagnosed it as a critical cardiac damage and announced to the family that he had merely a few hours left. Indranil and his family were devastated upon hearing this unfortunate news.
As a last resort to help the family, the senior doctor contacted one of his earlier classmates in the US for a second opinion on the situation.
He called the nurse as soon as he put down the phone and asked her to quickly pump 400 mg of Cordarone into the patient.
Fortunately, the patient’s condition stabilized, and though he remained in the ICU for the next 90 days, he survived. Today he is healthy and fit.
This was a revolutionary moment for the founder. He started wondering about the consequences if the doctor didn’t take a second opinion from his colleague?
How many lives can be saved if there was a platform for sharing such critical cases within the medical community?
That’s when the Eureka Moment happened- create an App to help doctors discuss medical cases while maintaining the privacy and secrecy of their medical research.
Voila! Docquity came into existence, and has rapidly become an essential social network for doctors.
Docquity’s popularity is bolstered by the fact that there are very few apps that help doctors remain up to date on the ongoing and upcoming advances in medical science within the limited spare time they get after tedious working hours.
How is Docquity App beneficial for doctors?
Once the basic module for this application was intercepted, the next big challenge was to make it user-friendly, engaging, and of course, useful for the medical community.
Team Docquity studied the framework and elements of several other successful networking apps like LinkedIn and Whatsapp and adapted it accordingly for their own user base to make it simpler and more user-friendly.
As the app development progressed, they learnt that there are so many young graduates that go for internship during their medical study but have very few senior doctors from whom they can learn.
The curiosity and questions bubbling in their minds are often left unanswered because of a lack of guidance.
In the absence of guidance from seniors, the only option left for them is to search the internet for answers. But most information on the web often comes from unreliable sources and hence, can’t be trusted.
Hence, there is a critical need for a reliable source of information for these young graduates.
Docquity has deftly filled this information gap by enabling the flow of accurate and updated information from veterans in the medical field to their youngsters as well as experts from other specializations.
Docquity is an app on which the information is shared by the doctors, for the doctors.
Several doctors publish their journal and post a plethora of case studies that are incredibly helpful for young doctors.
Not only that, it is one of the fastest ways to get your published cases and journals peer-reviewed from experienced doctors.
Such a level of community-enriching and collaborating experience within the medical fraternity is undoubtedly beneficial in the progress of medical research as a whole too.
