These startups leverage technological advancements to connect both patients and doctors. Eventually, the waiting time involved in booking a doctor appointment has been reduced drastically.

Raised €80M Series E funding
The Polish healthcare platform DocPlanner has raised a Series E funding of €80 million. This funding round was led by One Peak Partners and Goldman Sachs Private Capital Investing along with participation from its existing investors ENERN Investments and Piton Capital. With this investment, the overall funding raised by the company is now nearly €130 million. This has helped it solidify its position as one of the best-funded digital healthcare players across the world.

This investment will be used by DocPlanner to continue penetrating into the core markets in Latin America and Europe. Also, the company will invest in its R&D to develop more products and seek more acquisitions. Recently, the startup surpassed 1,000 employees on a global scale and has nearly 100 open positions.
Opts for SaaS to digitise practices
DocPlanner provides free doctor reviews and lets patients book appointments via its platform. Also, it offers a SaaS tool for doctors and clinics to reduce no-shows, digitise practices to be able to spend more time with patients, optimise the patient flow and improve healthcare services.
