Zocdoc is the tech company at the beginning of a better healthcare experience.
Zocdoc was founded in 2007 with a mission to give power to the patient. Today, more than 6 million patients use Zocdoc.com or the Zocdoc iPhone or Android app each month to find nearby, in-network providers and dentists, read verified reviews, and instantly book online appointments.
Zocdoc’s digital health marketplace enables online booking nationwide with 50+ types of specialists; patients have booked 1,000+ different types of procedures to date – from annual physicals and physical therapy to cardiology and counseling.
Zocdoc is headquartered in New York City and has ~500 employees. The Company is funded by some of the tech world’s most respected investors, including DST Global, Goldman Sachs, Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, Jeff Bezos, Marc Benioff, and Ron Conway. Total investment in the company has reached $223 million to date. Following the $130M Series D Funding Round in 2015 , Zocdoc became one of New York’s most highly valued-venture-backed companies with a valuation of $1.8B. Zocdoc Valued at 1.8 B in new Funding Round.
Timely Access to In-Network Care
While the national wait time average to see a provider is 24 days (Merritt Hawkins), 40% of Zocdoc appointments take place in the next two calendar days and the most common appointment takes place in less than 24 hours. Zocdoc expedites access to care by uncovering the “hidden supply of care” – the up to 20% of appointments that become available last-minute due to cancellations and reschedules – and surfacing it, in real-time, to patients seeking care through Zocdoc’s online patient self- scheduling service. This technology ensures that a provider’s time is fully utilized and dramatically decreases wait times for patients, leading to easier, faster access to care.
Behind every visit to a doctor’s office, hospital, or clinic, there is a tangled web of practice management systems, electronic health records, and insurance claims processes – and they each have their own language that doesn’t talk to each other and isn’t patient-friendly. With so little integration and interoperability, healthcare infrastructure just isn’t set up to meet our needs. Zocdoc’s digital center of care helps patients easily connect and interact with the healthcare system, whenever and wherever they are.
Zocdoc’s Patient-Powered Search gives patients the ability to search for care in their own language – slang, colloquial terms, and even emojis, without having any medical knowledge. And the new feature Insurance Checker uses AI to help patients decipher their insurance card, verify coverage and navigate to an in-network doctor. Patients are consumers, and they expect modern, digital and seamless experiences – Zocdoc is meeting this consumer expectation by developing technology that addresses the friction at each point in the patient journey.
Proven Results for Hospitals and Health Systems
Zocdoc helps health systems including Geisinger, Tufts Medical Center, Mount Sinai and University Hospital attract new patients, improve online reputation, increase rebooking, engagement and loyalty, and boost doctor utilization. Health systems lose millions each year to unfilled inventory; Zocdoc helps connect them with patients that need care now to close the inventory gap. Zocdoc’s patented synchronization technology connects directly with hundreds of EMR solutions to expose real-time availability to patients online and optimize doctors’ schedules by filling last minute cancellations and reschedules.
