Launched in September 2012, DoctorPage is a healthcare portal that facilitates online appointment booking. The startup has just announced new milestones: the four-month old website now has more than 12,500 doctors and dentists listed on its platform, with more than 250,000 unique users each month accessing DoctorPage to connect with their healthcare professionals.
DoctorPage was founded in June 2012 in Singapore by Max-F. Scheichenost, Dr. Dawn Soo as well as Daniel Endres. Mr. Scheichenost was also the co-founder of DailyDeal (acquired by Google in September 2011), and founder and managing partner of Alps Ventures, an Austrian-based investment company.
DoctorPage aims to improve healthcare access across Asia by providing a user-friendly platform that enables patients to search for healthcare professionals and book appointments with their preferred healthcare providers with a few simple clicks.
Back in November, DoctorPage landed funding from a board of international investors. Having gained traction, DoctorPage is setting its sights internationally, looking to bring its services to users in the surrounding Asia-Pacific region.
Of course, DoctorPage is not without its competitor. Medical specialist platform DocDoc is also operating in the same space. Two weeks earlier, DocDoc also announced their latest milestone: 1,000 doctors from Singapore and South Korea are now utilizing its appointment booking platform to acquire new patients. DocDoc is backed by 500Startups as well as Jungle Ventures.
