OnlineDoctor is the leading provider of teledermatology in Europe and was founded in 2016 by the dermatologist Dr Paul Scheidegger and the two health business experts Dr Tobias Wolf and Dr Philipp S. F. Wustrow in Switzerland. Currently, around 150 Swiss dermatologists receive enquiries via OnlineDoctor on a daily basis. Since the company works together with 25 percent of all dermatological practices in Switzerland, those affected can get an appointment at short notice in a nearby practice if necessary. In Switzerland, OnlineDoctor cooperates with health insurance companies such as CSS, Swica and Sympany. In addition, more than 300 Swiss pharmacies offer their customers the OnlineDoctor digital skin check via a Pro app for health professionals. Hospitals in Switzerland also use the service to digitally discuss dermatological cases directly with consultant physicians. Anyone who identifies a skin condition can receive a diagnosis and therapy recommendation from a dermatologist of their choice within a maximum of 48 hours.
