Docplanner Acquires Jameda


Docplanner, a Warsaw, Poland-based online healthcare marketplace and a provider of SaaS solutions for doctors and clinics, acquired Jameda, a Munich, Germany-based established online healthcare marketplace, from Hubert Burda Media.

The amount of the deal – which will be fully effective from 1 January 2022 – was not disclosed.

Jameda partners with over 20,000 doctors and has 8 million patients to its platform monthly, which will be an addition to Docplanner’s existing global client base of 110,000 doctors and nearly 70 million monthly patients. As part of the deal, Docplanner will invest capital and global expertise into Jameda and will focus on growing the company’s sales, customer care and marketing teams.

Docplanner will add more than 200 new team members to Jameda, investing more than a quarter of a billion euros in the German market over the next 2 to 3 years.

The acquisition marks the company’s first entry into a new geography since 2017 when it opened up local operations in Mexico and Brazil. The company also has leading market positions in Italy, Spain, Turkey and in its home market, Poland. Post-acquisition, Docplanner will be active in markets which generate more than 50% of all healthcare expenditures made in Europe and 84% of those made in Latin America.

Led by founder and CEO Mariusz Gralewski, Docplanner creates digital apps and software solutions for doctors, clinics, hospitals and patients to enable the healthcare ecosystem and the patient journey to work together. With free doctor reviews and instant online appointment booking for patients through its online marketplaces, Docplanner has a network of almost 2 million healthcare professionals, serves over 100,000 customers globally and operates in more than 12 countries. Founded in 2012 in Poland, the company now boasts a team of more than 1,800 based across offices in Warsaw, Barcelona, Istanbul, Rome, Mexico City, Curitiba and Bologna. It is backed by venture capital funds including Point Nine Capital, Goldman Sachs Asset Management and One Peak Partners, raising a total of approximately €300m to date.

Led by Dr Florian Weiss, CEO, Jameda provides a suite of solutions that includes tools for patients to find physicians, book an appointment and see their provider in person or via video consultation. More than 275,000 physicians and healthcare professionals list their medical practice on its platform, providing comprehensive information about their range of services and featuring user generated ratings on their patient experience. In addition, physicians can optimize their appointment management with the Jameda calendar, saving time and money – which can now be spent with patients instead of on paperwork.
