Doctor Care Anywhere Ltd was founded in July 2013 as a telehealth company based in London. It is committed to delivering high-quality, effective and efficient care to its patients through the integration of Primary and Secondary Care.
From inception, the company has sought to address the fragmentation and inefficiencies found in health systems around the world that contributes to unnecessary interventions, increased costs and poor patient outcomes. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) estimates that up to 20% of healthcare expenditure could be directed more efficiently.
A patient enters Doctor Care Anywhere’s treatment pathway through a virtual consultation with one of the Company’s GPs. Guided by clinical decision support tools, the GP may organise diagnostic tests through a national network of diagnostic centres, specialist consultant reviews of the results, and provides ongoing clinical management. This may include, where clinically appropriate, the facilitation of specialist care and intervention. All of this is stored in a single, secure Electronic Health Record.
The company was acquired by Synergix Health Ltd in 2015, but has continued to trade as Doctor Care Anywhere. The holding company was renamed in 2020 to Doctor Care Anywhere Group plc.
Doctor Care Anywhere continues to build strong and sustainable channel relationships with some of the world’s largest insurance companies, healthcare providers and blue-chip corporate customers. It currently provides healthcare services to over 2 million patient lives in the United Kingdom.
