Updoc, which was launched in 2021, helps in connecting consumers seeking medical support and services with various registered health practitioners through telehealth. 

The company’s services, which include advice, specialist referrals, medical letters, online prescriptions, and pathology referrals, cater to the growing demand for accessible healthcare. 

Offering a one-off transactional model or a monthly subscription option, Updoc has made healthcare services more convenient and accessible for more than 200,000 consumers till date.  

The digital delivery of consultations is expected to help in lowering treatment costs, while also offering flexible work opportunities for medical professionals, especially for those operating in regional areas. 

The investment by Bailador signifies a milestone for Updoc, which has achieved considerable growth without external capital until now. 

Bailador co-founder and managing partner Paul Wilson said: “Updoc provides an exceptional experience for both patients and health practitioners. We are also pleased that by making routine doctor interactions more efficient, the sector is helping to ease the pressure on the Australian healthcare system.”
