Launched in September 2012, DoctorPage is a healthcare portal that facilitates online appointment bookings. The company has just announced a new milestone: in Singapore, DoctorPage signed on 1,500 doctors and dentists onto its platform. Earlier in January, the company has also announced that they have crossed its “12,500 doctor and dentist listings mark, with more than 250,000 unique users each month” accessing DoctorPage to connect with their healthcare professionals. With the announcement today, DoctorPage shared that they now have over 300,000 users using their platform, marking an impressive 20 percent growth in just over the last one month.
DoctorPage was founded in June 2012 in Singapore by Max-F. Scheichenost, Dr. Dawn Soo and 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.
Another close competitor for DoctorPage is 500Startups and Jungle Ventures-backed DocDoc, which recently signed on 1,000 doctors onto its platform back in January.
It seems like both DoctorPage and DocDoc are in a “land grabbing” situation now, actively attracting and signing on doctors and increasing their listings.
