Our StoryThe goal: make health better
We launched HealthKit in 2012 to solve a major global problem for patients and practitioners everywhere: make health efficient, effective and accessible in order to improve the lives of millions of people around the world.We solve the underlying issues in health
The problems faced in health are the same everywhere you go. In the developed world, two-thirds of people don't get the treatment they need when they need it, mainly because they don't know where to find the right practitioner for them or they cannot get in to see them. It is worse in rural areas where people have 4 years' less life expectancy partly due to lack of access to health services.
At the same time, we saw that doctors using paper or antiquated systems to run their practice complete an hour of administration a day and deal with bureaucratic complexity – time that could be better spent treating patients.
The only way to make things genuinely better is to bring patients and practitioners together in the one platform and solve the underlying issues of health, to make health genuinely better. We had built a similar platform for just one country in 2010 and we decided to do the same globally.A global platform for doctors and patients
HealthKit is a global platform for patients and practitioners around the world, providing revolutionary clinical software tailored to the needs of practitioners of any profession in any country, along with services for patients including directories to find the right practitioner for you and tools to track your health. We bring these services into the one service to make health efficient, effective and accessible, wherever you are in the world.
In just two years, HealthKit has grown to be a global network of practitioners in more than 40 countries around the world. An appointment is booked in HealthKit every 5 seconds during practice hours and we save practitioners an estimated 30,000 hours each month, so they can treat more patients and reduce unmet patient need around the world. We also have over 150,000 practitioners listed on our directories. We're solving the tough issues in healthcare, and we're consistently expanding our services and reach to help as many people as possible around the world.
