DocPlanner has raised $20 million for its platform that helps patients get a doctor’s appointment
DocPlanner, a startup that helps healthcare professionals manage their diaries, has raised
$20 million (£14 million) and merged with rival firm Doctoralia.com.
The Polish company, which claims to process 200,000 bookings a month, received the
investment from venture capital firm Target Global.
DocPlanner’s online software is aimed at private healthcare providers, including individual
doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals such as dietitians and psychologists, as
well as small and large clinics. The company says doctors can use its software to:
manage their professional profile
follow and respond to opinions received from patients
offer an online calendar to their existing and new patients
and improve their office administration with the help of features like a personal “teleconfidential
assistant” and automatic appointment reminders.
The latest investment means DocPlanner’s total funding to date stands at $34 million (£24
million). Previous investors include EBRD, Point Nine Capital, Piton Capital, RTAventures,
and Fabrice Grinda, who has invested in the likes of Airbnb and Uber.
Yaron Valler, general partner at Target Global, provided the following statement:
