As the leader in local search, Editus is referencing all doctors – GP’s and specialists – in Luxembourg and now allows all its users to access a booking service directly via editus.lu. Editus remains therefore committed to the public and expands its offer by giving access to this new service useful on a daily basis.
The users, among which more and more use our mobile applications and generate about 50% of the traffic, will also have the possibility to fully enjoy this new feature.
“This new collaboration is the fruit of a winning synergy for the users and all practitioners of the Grand Duchy. It perfectly fits into our development strategy. We are working daily on strengthening our position as leader in local search by providing the visitors with qualitative content in line with what they came to look for on editus.lu. From now on, it is no longer only a question of looking for the contact details of his doctor but also of making the appointment and therefore to access a complete service. This collaboration with DOCTENA aims to offer a complementary, unique and innovative experience to all our users”, says Hugues Langlet.
“Being present on Editus is for Doctena another way to fulfil our promise to facilitate easy access to healthcare. A patient who finds his doctor on Editus will now directly see his availabilities.”
Editus.lu, the 4th most visited website in Luxembourg – and the first outside information websites – records more than 1,3 million visits per month. For its part, the platform of DOCTENA, which has already been operational in Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Germany and Luxembourg since 2013, has a total of more than 7,000 practitioners, available across Europe. DOCTENA Luxembourg currently has 210,276 appointments available and the practitioners referenced on the platform are speaking 25 languages. One in five Luxembourgish doctors has an online agenda. This collaboration allows them to join forces and increase drastically their visibility to the users in Luxembourg and in the Greater Region.
“Being present on Editus is for DOCTENA another way to fulfil our promise to facilitate easy access to healthcare. A patient who finds his doctor on Editus will now directly see his availabilities. He can now book online in 3 clicks, totally secure, or, if he prefers, call the indicated phone number”, says Patrick Kersten, the founder of DOCTENA.
