We help patients with serious illnesses and complex diagnoses by recommending the best possible specialist for their specific health problem. To accomplish this, we collect quality data from the healthcare system, conduct our own research, and survey our patients. Since 2012, we have already been able to help many thousands of patients in finding the right doctor for their specific health problem. Why we do it We want to give every single patient the best possible access to healthcare in Germany and Switzerland. It is still far too common for patients to be left alone after a diagnosis, hoping for a competent second opinion and having to undergo unnecessary treatment or surgery - a major burden for patients and our healthcare system. Our services improve patients' quality of life, contribute to greater transparency in the healthcare system, and reduce treatment and therapy costs by providing tailored treatment recommendations. Who we are committed to BetterDoc is solely committed to the well-being of the patient. Owner-managed since our founding in 2012, we act independently of doctors, clinics and networks and thus avoid conflicts of interest in our doctor and treatment recommendations. We work closely with (health) insurances in Germany and Switzerland and ensure that, with these collaborations, our patients can use the BetterDoc service for free. We also integrate our service into the corporate health management of employers throughout Germany. Where we want to go More than 20 million people already have free access to our service. Through further collaborations in the insurance and employer sectors, we want to continuously increase the number of patients to whom BetterDoc is available at no cost so we can meet their individual needs. Today, many different employees (biologists, physiotherapists, and physicians) work at BetterDoc and dedicate themselves to each individual patient case. Today, we are developing a unique data analysis-driven system to work more efficiently and to facilitate the search for the best individualized care. Patient by patient - we want to contribute to improving the quality of the healthcare system in Germany, Switzerland and many other countries and to make it sustainable and affordable in the long term. A job that matters There are few other German start-ups in which you would have such a direct opportunity to help people who have suffered a health emergency and to improve their quality of life. Whether in software development, accounting or patient care - our employees make a valuable contribution to society with their work.
