Doctena and Bookmydoc are merging

Bookmydoc joins Doctena. The two entities unite their strengths. Doctena is consolidating its position as the leading medical booking platform in Luxembourg, with more than 1 out of 5 doctors offering online appointments.

Bookmydoc is now part of Doctena. Patients and medical practitioners using the platform can fully benefit from Doctena’s know-how, technological progress and visibility in Luxembourg. As a reminder, it was in 2013 in Luxembourg that the first patients booked a medical consultation via Doctena’s service. Four years later, it is a first-rate service for patients and healthcare professionals alike. 20% of practitioners publish their availabilities on doctena.lu and several tens of thousands of appointments are booked each month.

Last year, Doctena recorded a dazzling growth on a European scale. In November 2017, Doctena announced the takeover of the Austrian leader, becoming the No. 1 online medical appointment service in a 6th European country. Doctena provides access to the agendas of 10,000 practitioners online.

“The decision to merge is the fruit of a real motivation to make the doctors registered on Bookmydoc benefit from the latest innovations in terms of online agendas. Doctena has developed a number of features that make it easier to manage appointments in a medical environment”, says Dr. Jean-Marc Wever, founder of Bookmydoc.

Patrick Kersten, CEO and founder of Doctena, says he is “happy that the two players in Luxembourg are now one. Doctena has always sought an exchange with health professionals. With the contribution of Dr. Jean-Marc Weber, a local expert in digital health will contribute to the next generation of management solutions intended to the medical community.”
