Zesty and Cliniko join forces to improve access to Healthcare in the UK
HealthTech companies working together to empower patients to book online
London, 1st August 2013 – Cliniko and Zesty have today announced they are joining forces to empower patients to book their healthcare appointments online across the UK. The two health tech companies have agreed to form a strategic partnership initially targeting healthcare practices in London with bigger plans to roll out the Cliniko/Zesty integration across the UK.
Launched in May 2013, Zesty offers available healthcare appointments for people to book online and via their smartphones. Demand is huge and the company has helped thousands of people search and book appointments in the last three months alone. Currently the online marketplace focuses on Dentist and Hygienist appointments, however the high growth startup is set to expand into other healthcare verticals such as private doctors, physios, osteopaths and chiropractors in the near future.
Joel Friedlaender, Founder and CEO, Cliniko said: “Cliniko is loved by thousands of healthcare practitioners worldwide. It’s particularly popular with Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Podiatrists, Psychologists, Naturopaths and Massage Therapists. We are excited to be working with Zesty to enhance our product offering to clients, now they can manage their existing patients and build their practice with new patients at the same time! Cliniko is web-based software. This means you can work from any device, at anytime, from anywhere with an internet connection, your Mac, PC, Smartphone or Tablet, from the clinic, on the road or from the comfort of home.”
Lloyd Price, Co Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Zesty: “Our aim is to make finding an available healthcare appointment as easy as booking a flight, hotel or restaurant online. We’ve seen tremendous growth in London, but to generate broad mainstream appeal and build a brand in the UK we need to diversify the range of services consumers can search for and book on our site. Cliniko work with thousands of healthcare practitioners worldwide which gives us the flexibility to expand quickly across the UK and beyond into mainland Europe if we wish to. Cliniko is one of a series of strategic tech partnerships we will enter into during 2013 as we continue to focus on adding value on both the supply and demand side of our marketplace.”
