Improved search – Patient Platform – Doctena


9 out of 10 people find Doctena’s patient platform ‘easy’ or ‘very easy’ to use. That’s pretty great, but we’re not done, yet! That’s why we have improved the way patients are searching for you on Doctena.

It is now possible to search for the locations of practitioners by exact address, the postal code, the city and the district. Results will be shown for a default radius that can be changed.

In addition, when a patient is searching for a specialty that is not a practitioner’s main specialty, the patient will now see both, the specialty he was looking for and the practitioner’s main specialty.


Figure 2: If the speciality a patient searched for does not match with the practitioner’s main speciality but is one of his/her other specialities, both specialities will be displayed


This and many more features, subtle tweaks, adjustments and improvements have been introduced to our clients and their patients.

Every day we’re improving Doctena’s services, and every 8-12 weeks we tend to ship significant upgrades. We’re working on some great stuff now — we look forward to rolling it out when it’s ready. Stay tuned to this blog, or follow us on Twitter at to stay up on the latest. If you’re a customer, thanks so much! And if you aren’t, but you find yourself struggling with appointment management, too many phone calls and too little visibility online, it’s time to give Doctena a shot. We’d like to give you a tour and discuss your options
