Doctolib is #1 in cybersecurity
Doctolib has a cybersecurity score of 83/100 according to Cyrating*. Among the 109 companies evaluated in the healthcare sector, Doctolib is one of the only 3 companies to get a score above 80. Doctolib has been repeatedly ranked #1 over the past few months.
* Cyrating assesses Doctolib's cyber security and GDPR performance every month.
We respect deontology and medical ethics
We treat all practitioners equally: nobody can pay to be put forward. Doctolib's search results are random and we update our randomized results every hour.
We are against practitioner ratings from patients because practitioners are individuals and care quality is hard to measure.
« Doctolib relies on 2 core principles. Firstly, doctors and patients who use Doctolib are the only owners of their data: Doctolib cannot access any personal information about them whatsoever. Secondly, because healthcare is not a business, all doctors are treated equally and we refuse to consider them as a service: this is why there are no ranking or notation of doctors on our website and app. »
