Doctoralia, the leading digital platform to connect doctors and patients in Spain and Latin America founded in Barcelona, has merged with its European counterpart DocPlanner to create the largest online healthcare platform in the world. As a result of this merger, the new giant will be present in 25 countries and manage about 200,000 appointments each month.

Doctoralia has established a strong presence in its main markets and now has 9 million unique users each month. DocPlanner has 8 million unique users a month, 90% of which are in Europe. After the merger, they now have 17 unique users a month, will serve 3 million registered users and have the largest database of healthcare professionals in the world, approximately 5 million specialists, according to data published by Doctoralia.

This news gives the eHealth sector wings, as it now has a global benchmark in healthcare marketplaces. Doctoralia will be controlled mainly by the stockholders at DocPlanner, but the founders of the Barcelona-based firm will have a significant share in the company and join the executive team in order to continue promoting its presence in Spain and Latin America.

Doctoralia and DocPlanner specialize in connecting healthcare patients and professionals on their digital platform and now also offer management software for private healthcare professionals. Professionals who sign up on the platform can make appointments with patients, monitor and answer opinions posted by patients and improve day-to-day management of their clinics. There are also advantages for users, as they can find the right professional for their needs and be more independent in managing their health.

This merger came after DocPlanner, based in Poland, closed a round of funding with new investors valued at $20 millions led by Target Group.
