Interview with Medlanes

What inspired you to found your startup?

The healthcare market in Germany was ripe for a new service for patients that are underserved by the traditional health care providers.

How do you define success for yourself and your company?

Success for us means happy patients and happy doctors.

Is there anything you’d do differently if you could do it again?

We would expand to new cities even faster.

What problem does your product solve?

For a long time patients (and doctors!) have been unhappy with the lack of service in the healthcare industry. Long waiting times and short doctor-patient consultations are the norm. We provide the space for doctors to really interact with the patient, allowing for a deeper and more reliable analysis of the ailment.

Where do you see your company in 1/5/10 years?

Providing high quality and high comfort healthcare all over Europe.

How are you different?

Our quality of healthcare and quick access for the patient is unmatched by any other service in the industry.

How often does your product/service show up in a user’s day or week?

Medlanes is used by anyone who gets sick or needs a check-up. While we hope that this remains a rare occasion for most of our users, we make sure that we have their back every time.

Impact: how are you doing good and building a better future?

We help patients and people in need anytime, anywhere.

How has the startup scene in Berlin changed?

In has gotten substantially bigger, with more and more players in ehealth. Furthermore insurers and investors are much more proactive in the digital health space.

What are the pros and cons of launching your startup from Berlin?

Berlin is the largest and most diverse city in Germany, making it the best spot to test any product for the German speaking market.
