On a rock climbing trip around South East Asia, Caelen King found himself in need of a small medical procedure, but quickly realised he didn’t know where to go, how much he could expect to pay, or how to tell if any particular clinic was trusted and recommended by its existing patients. He didn’t think this was particularly strange at the time. He was a visitor in a foreign country, without local knowledge or local friends to ask. He found a clinic as best he could and went ahead with the treatment.
However, a few years later when he was back in Ireland he found himself in almost exactly the same situation. Even at home he found it hard to get access to useful information like location, service, pricing and feedback. Not a man to waste a good idea, WhatClinic.com was born.
WhatClinic.com was founded in 2006, though when we began, we called ourselves Revahealth. In just a few short years we have grown to over 50 employees. Our main offices are in the heart of Dublin city, though we have people working in Poland, Brazil and Mexico too.
WhatClinic.com helps patients find, compare and book the right clinics for them, in more than 100 countries. We provide detailed listings for over 100,000 clinics on our site. These include doctors, dentists, beauty and cosmetic surgery, physiotherapy, fertility, holistics and a lot more. We believe that every patient is an empowered consumer. When they elect to have a medical treatment, we want to give them all the information they need to make an informed choice. Over one million patients use WhatClinic.com every single month to find and compare clinics.
In operation in over 100 countries, WhatClinic.com is also available in other languages. In 2012 Whatclinic.com launched in Brazil with a fully localised service in Portuguese, in response to Brazil’s leading position in the plastic surgery sector. In 2013 we launched in Mexico, in Spanish, where the dental industry is one of the most competitive in the world. Over the next three years, WhatClinic.com will continue to roll out more localised language services in order to bring value and choice to patients all over the world.
Our mission is to help patients find the right clinic for the treatment they want, by giving them access to all the information they need to make an informed decision. We do this through the commitment and dedication of our people.
We believe in a world where elective health patients will be able to make active and individual decisions about where to get treated, not unlike the way they decide which new car to buy today.
Successful clinics will recognise that patients are evolving. Patients are becoming empowered consumers. We believe in a world where it is easy for clinics to provide accurate and pertinent information as well as excellent customer care.
WhatClinic.com will be a global leader in patient experience for the elective healthcare sector, connecting the right customers with appropriate clinics and providing all the necessary tools and information patients need to make an informed choice.
