The doctor is in: App lets you book with just a click

The app has a current database of 6,000 medical practitioners.

FindDoc, Hong Kong’s first multilingual, centralised online healthcare information and appointment platform, has been creating a comprehensive system since 2012. It aims to contribute to the development of a supportive medical ecosystem. The booking app has the function of real-time appointment booking, providing users convenient and flexible access to professional medical information and services.

Explaining what motivated him to develop the app, FindDoc CEO and founder Ivan Ng says it was founded in 2012 to honor a friend, the late Hong Kong business leader Mohan Mahtani. When Mahtani sustained a serious concussion and fell into a coma, “his family desperately tried to find leading neurosurgeons but found that information was not readily available,” says Ng.

He notes, “Our team was determined to provide an uncompromised class leading system – one that would be intuitive to use for patients, as well as helpful and effective for medical practitioners and their businesses.”

Aside from a database of 6,000 medical practitioners, FindDoc has over 400 videos made in collaboration with more than a hundred healthcare professionals on its video platform FindDocTV. At the same time it is a partner of the Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital and offers free faecal occult blood tests to users aged 45-65. FindDoc is also working closely with Silence, a non-profit organisation that serves the hearing impaired.

FindDoc has 4.3m visits per year.
