Founded in 2007 with a mission of improving access to healthcare, ZocDoc is the most convenient, free way to find a nearby health practitioner who accepts your insurance and instantly book an appointment online. The service, used by more than 5 million patients/month, currently serves 40 percent of the U.S. population across nearly 2,000 cities.
With the service, patients avoid the hassle of waiting on hold, searching for a good doctor or wondering whether a doctor takes a particular insurance. Participating health practitioners benefit by attracting new patients and alleviating the productivity lost from last minute cancellations.
In 2012, ZocDoc introduced its first major product since the company’s inception - ZocDoc Check-In. This feature allows patients to fill out their medical forms online in advance of their visit and saves the information for future visits as well. This capability, which was the #1 most requested feature to date, improves accuracy and convenience for patients and doctors alike.
In August 2013, ZocDoc introduced the ZocDoc Health Marketplace Resource – a destination providing patients with independent information and analysis of the Health Insurance Marketplaces created under the Affordable Care Act, helping them make more informed healthcare choices. The resource’s most prominent feature - Care Access Grades – are letter grades assigned to each health insurer that indicate how easy it will be for patients to secure near-term appointments with in-network medical providers. With the nation’s largest real-time database of available appointments, ZocDoc is in a unique position to provide this accurate, up-to-date insight into doctor availability and level of access to care under each health insurance plan in their state’s insurance marketplace.
ZocDoc en Español, a Spanish-language version of the website and mobile app, is also available.
