How betterDoctor came to be
When Ari Tulla moved to California from Finland, he faced complex health issues in his family and needed to find the right doctor to work with. He wasted months searching the web, calling offices and trying to find a doctor who could help and figure out what’s wrong.
“There has to be a better way,” he thought. He had been solving problems with technology for over ten years. Ari set out to solve the doctor finding puzzle with his Nokia colleague, Tapio Tolvanen.
Ari and Tapio initially built BetterDoctor’s consumer service that let patients search local doctors based on specialty, accepted insurance plans, and conditions. Patients were also able to see patient feedback and doctor to doctor referrals to identify the right doctor.
They added all 1,000,000 doctors and dentist to the database and the BetterDoctor consumer service helped over 20,000,0000 people find the right doctor.
While running the service, the BetterDoctor team discovered that online information about doctors was often incorrect. Without accurate information it’s impossible for patients to find the care they need. BetterDoctor team decided to fix the root of the problem, inaccurate provider data, and offer the accurate data to the whole healthcare market.
Today, BetterDoctor helps validate and deliver accurate provider data to health plans, health systems, and hundreds of other companies—from startups to publicly traded ones.
