Doctolib can see you now: Meet the e-health tool that's taken off in France

As Doctolib’s visibility has increased over the past five years, its e-health tool has become a part of everyday life in France.

Doctolib, now with a market valuation of over $1bn, is an app and web-based platform that lets patients book and manage appointments with doctors and medical specialists.

First launched in 2013 and available to the public in France and Germany, Doctolib receives 30 million online visits from patients every month. It provides about 75,000 doctors with a cloud booking service that connects patients to 1,400 healthcare facilities.

The company argues that the system can lower the number the calls a hospital or practice receives by around a third and cut up to 75 percent of missed appointments. It also helps doctors raise awareness for their services and develop their patient community.

Having recently raised €150m ($168m) from equity group General Atlantic, Franco-German company Doctolib joins the ranks of French unicorns Blablacar, Critero, and Vente-Privée.
