"Austria is in the midst of a very exciting phase with respect to telemedicine. The coronavirus pandemic has served as a catalyst which is increasingly opening up the door to telemedicine. It is impressive to see how medical specialists innovatively and pragmatically forge new paths and thus gain practical and positive experience with telemedicine. With OnlineDoctor, we want to contribute to this development, and serve as an experienced partner to help shape the digital healthcare of tomorrow together with the relevant players. In this regard, ABA has proven to be a professional sparring partner."
Philipp Freitag, Managing Director, OnlineDoctor Austria
More than 600 dermatologists already make use of OnlineDoctor every day in Switzerland (onlinedoctor.ch), in Germany (onlinedoctor.de) and now also in Austria (onlinedoctor.at) first since September 2020. Based on the positive feedback - from both doctors and patients - in the Swiss and German markets, the DACH region and thus the expansion to Austria at the end of 2020 was the next logical step. At the same time, OnlineDoctor is actively appealing to practicing dermatologists in Austria thanks to its growing popularity. The objective is to make a free, legally secure and data protection compliant telemedicine service available to the general public and help shape digital healthcare in cooperation with medical specialists and partners. The company plans to strengthen the presence of the Austrian subsidiary and its activities by building up and enlarging the local team as well as its network of dermatologists in Austria.
