What problem do you solve?

Many doctors are unabl​e to reassign cance​lled medical appointments at short notice, so that on average six treatment hours per week are unused. A surgery that is conducted on a sound economic basis should achieve a cost-covering turnover per treatment hour. Up to 30% of the 600 million annual medical appointments in Germany are cancelled at most 24 hours in advance or not at all. On the other hand, despite the urgent need for a medical treatment, patients have to put up with long waiting times. Quickdoctor provides doctors with an easy-to-handle option to reassign medical appointments that have been vacated at short notice. Patients on the other hand gain the possibility to arrange a medical appointment based on their personally desired criteria with little effort.

What's your digital solution?

Quickdoctor solves this two-sided problem in an elegant way: Quickdoctor enables physicians to offer short-term free capacities to patients in need. The respective surgery software automatically transmits a vacated appointment to the Quickdoctor online platform. Quickdoctor now conveys the appointment to a patient who has been searching for exactly this kind of appointment. Through the interface with the software of the surgery the new appointment is entered into the diary. ​On quickdoctor.de ​patients who are looking for short-term medical appointments are given a structured overview of all available appointments. Patients have the opportunity to book their appointment in three simple steps: search, find and book. Registration is not required - only email address and mobile number. A high degree of capacity utilisation is guaranteed despite short-term cancellation, and patients can find help quickly.
