We’ve set out to change the way travelers find and receive healthcare services. We believe travelers should be able to quickly access high-quality healthcare services anywhere in the world from the comfort of the hotel room.
Our mission & vision
TripDoctor offers a trusted and convenient way to immediately find and connect to qualified doctors who speak your language, no matter where you are in the world. TripDoctor believes everyone has the right to quickly access medical services, at a fair transparent price, with the assurance that they will be treated with the same level of care and respect that they can expect at home.
Getting sick while traveling used to be a nightmare – from finding a doctor, scheduling an appointment, language issues, quality of care concerns, unclear pricing, safety concerns, and transportation issues. TripDoctor wants to remove all these barriers to care, and make connecting to a doctor a modern convenient process.
Our founding history
We created TripDoctor after 30+ years of traveling internationally to all parts of the globe. Over this time, information and technology has transformed all parts of travel, from booking flights and hotels, to finding transportation and other local services, to allowing us to stay connected with smartphones in the most remote locations of the world.
However, one thing that didn’t change at all was getting sick. International travelers are exposed to significantly more healthcare risks, from environmental factors (such as water, food, public spaces) to activity factors (higher risky activity behaviors).
Just over the last few years, we have been hospitalized numerous times on our travels, due to cold and flus, upper respiratory infections, gastrointestinal illness, poisonous bug bites, allergic reactions, dengue fever, and deep vein thrombosis just to name a few.
In 2017, we realized that while the rest of travel experiences were getting more convenient and more efficient, finding medical care was still the same old nightmare. We sought to change that by building a platform and a comprehensive tool to improve this process and remove the old world barriers to finding a doctor while outside your home country.
