RecoMed is an intelligent, easy-to-use and powerful online platform for healthcare practitioners and their patients. Patients today are looking more and more to the Internet for access to their healthcare, and RecoMed enables providers to smoothly move their practices onto this crucial new channel, allowing them to create a web page with practice details and appointment-booking functionality. With RecoMed, patients can easily research providers based on location and specialisation, book appointments online, and post reviews.

Where Implemented

RecoMed is the nation’s leading online platform for medical professionals and their patients. There are 4,000+ medical specialists on RecoMed, and thousands of people use RecoMed to find a doctor or dentist each month. The service is available 24 hours a day and is completely free.

With RecoMed, patients can search online for practitioners in their area, compare qualifications and practice details, and instantly book an appointment with a few clicks. Medical professionals, on the other hand, can seamlessly establish an online presence for their practice, engage with potential patients, and improve the treatment experience and continuity-of-care.

RecoMed represents an important step toward healthcare transparency. Not only can patients see the practice’s location, opening hours, the doctor’s qualifications and even languages spoken, but after attending the appointment a patient can post a recommendation of their experience for others to read. Users can now compare practitioners and make an informed decision about their healthcare without the need to rummage through different forums and practice web pages.
