Booking appointments with doctors is seen by many patients as much easier online. It’s no surprise that DabaDoc, an mHealth start-up based in Morocco, has expanded its operations into Algeria and Tunisia. IFG.CC, the Potsdam eGovernment Competence Center, says that DabaDoc now supports over 2,000 doctors in the three countries since it started in 2014.
DabaDoc’s distribution now extends across 72 specialties in 50 cities. Patients connect with doctors through DabaDoc’s website. It’s likely that it’ll be used in more countries during 2015. French speaking countries seem likely users in the short term. A subscription service for doctors is also planned.
Since it started, DabaDoc’s been highly acclaimed and successful in competitions. It won the GIST competition in Casablanca and was one of ten start-ups selected for the ArabNet Beirut competition in February 2014.
Sister and brother, Zineb Drissi Kaitouni and Driss Drissi Kaitouni set up DabaDoc. Their achievements have been considerable in a short time. It’s only the start. eHNA looks forward to posting about their next success.
