A new online medical directory and booking service launched in Dubai this month aims to link the Medical Community and prospective patients together in an easy and simple way. DoctorUna offers an online platform for Doctors and Medical Practices (in English and Arabic alike) that enables them to profile their expertise, qualifications and key details regarding their services and launch it to prospective patients.
DoctorUna will also provide a simple but technologically advanced appointment setting system that enables appointments to be requested or scheduled 24/7, even when the practice is closed. The booking system can be easily integrated with any and implemented as a practice’s appointment system, to reduce pressure on time-stretched receptionists and to fill vacant appointment slots in one easy step.
Yaasen Dalal, CEO of DoctorUna explained: “With more than 10,000 medical practitioners and specialists registered in the UAE, it is a real challenge for doctors to raise their profile and public awareness of their services. We provide a reliable source of up-to-date information to make the process of finding a doctor and making an appointment as simple and painless for patients as possible. At the same time we directly improve appointment efficiency for the doctor to ultimately benefit the bottom line.”
With DoctorUna, patients can now book and confirm their appointment instantly online, and take advantage of last-minute openings in doctors’ schedules. Reminders are sent by SMS and email and changes in appointments can also be done quickly and easily without having to remember to call the receptionist. To date, more than 97 percent of appointments booked through DoctorUna were confirmed and honored.”
DoctorUna plans to extend its service to all major cities in the MENA region, with launches in Amman, Jordan and Cairo, Egypt scheduled before the end of the year. For more information visit www.doctoruna.com
