What is Doxy?

TeleHealth Appointments utilize Doxy.me services.

Doxy.me (“doc see me”) is a simple and easy way for clinicians to meet with patients remotely. A customizable waiting room welcomes and engages the patient until the clinician is ready. Doxy.me also has a patient queue and chat capabilities to help clinician manage several patients simultaneously, when necessary. With an encrypted P2P connection and a signed BAA available, clinicians can have confidence they are compliant with HIPAA regulations.

  2. Estimate call quality to predict your expected call quality based on you computer and internet speeds. If you a receiving high scores, then the quality issue is likely your patient’s end. Ask them to run the same test.

  3. Internet speed test to determine your connection speed. Both you and your participant need 500kb/s download and upload speeds to have a good call.

  4. Network stability test to determine the stability of your network. If you get “Network Appears Unstable”, then your router or internet service provider (e.g. Comcast) is mostly likely the cause of your quality issues.

If a test failed, send a screenshot of results to Doxy.Me support team to help you figure out the next steps. These tests will take a few minutes to run.

Video quality is NOT impacted by other users on Doxy.me at the same time. Internet Service Providers (ISP) are known to throttle traffic during high congestion times. If you suspect your ISP is throttling your traffic, contact your internet service provider and ask them to not throttle traffic to Doxy.me because your are using it to provide a healthcare service.
