Doctrin is a Swedish healthtech company with an innovative and intelligent digital solution that enables healthcare providers to create a patient journey that is more automated and accessible, efficient, and integrated with the wider care system. Established only five years ago, Doctrin is already Sweden’s leading business-to business-platform for digital healthcare serving a quarter of its population with 2.3 million people having access to the platform and used by renowned care providers such as Karolinska Hospital and Capio, part of Ramsay Healthcare. The company has now expanded its services to the UK with Lakeside Healthcare as the first healthcare provider to go live with the Doctrin platform in the UK.
Craig Oates, managing director of Doctrin UK, said: ‘We’re very happy to partner with such an innovative and highly regarded partner as Lakeside. We are working together to radically transform how healthcare is delivered in the UK, to improve access for patients and help health and social care providers meet the ever increasing needs of an ageing and increasingly complex patient population. General practice in the UK is facing unprecedented demand for services, and we believe Doctrin’s online health solutions will support general practice in dealing with these challenges by simplifying care navigation and management within primary care networks and across the integrated care system to provide seamless care to their communities.’
Lakeside Healthcare is one of the largest GP Partnerships in the UK and renowned for their desire to innovate and provide outstanding care for their patients. Its Midlands-based practices are owned and run by GP Partners and teams of doctors, nurses and associated staff who know their patients and care deeply about the quality of care they provide in the communities they serve. By going live with the Doctrin platform Lakeside will be able to combine digital consultations with care navigation and care management, not only within the practice but also with partner organisations. This will help patients navigate often complex care pathways seamlessly and swiftly to radically improve the patient and clinician experience, enabling truly integrated care.
Dr Miles Langdon, GP partner and clinical lead at Lakeside Healthcare, said: ‘As a partnership we have been impressed, not only with how well the platform performs, but also with how user-friendly it is, both for patients, clinicians and administrative staff. Early feedback has been very positive. Providing digital access for patients is an NHS requirement for GP practices and so this is another way to facilitate patients contacting us for their healthcare needs. The Doctrin project team has been hugely supportive in the development and initial roll-out phases, and we look forward to continuing our close working relationship with them to replicate this early success at other group practices in due course.’
The partnership with Lakeside Healthcare enables Doctrin to further develop and enhance their platform for the UK and internationally, particularly to support and drive the integrated health and social care agenda, facilitating new joined up care pathways and easier communication across a wider range of organisations. Doctrin has raised a total of over £20 million in capital since it’s launch five years ago and whilst continuing to grow in its home market, is putting increasing resources into international expansion with a specific focus on the UK since September last year.
