We founded samedi GmbH in 2008 and set ourselves the goal of solving communication problems beyond the boundaries of the individual medical practice wall and clinic wall for the benefit of the patient.

Driven by a personal health experience and the complex and difficult coordination of coordinated medical appointments, we came up with the idea in 2008 to make appointment management in the healthcare system more patient-friendly. It all began with the idea of establishing online appointment booking - similar to other industries - for doctors as well.
"I book my hotels online, my train or plane ticket and reserve my restaurant table online - so why not my doctor's appointment as well?"
We founded samedi GmbH from this simple approach in 2008. However, we quickly noticed that arranging a doctor's appointment is far more complex than reserving a restaurant table online. The most diverse information and factors play a role here and must be considered - starting with previous illnesses of the patient, the different resources of the doctor's practice, the different services from health insurance fund to health insurance fund, to the referral of the patient to a specialist colleague.
There was still the wish to simplify or structure the appointment booking in the health sector and to establish the patient service - above all the online appointment booking with the doctor. Due to the complexity of the appointment management, the samedi resource flow control was gradually created, which breaks through the walls of the practice and clinic and optimizes workflows and makes them more efficient through the function of online scheduling of patients and referring physicians. The e-health web software solution samedi networks medical information, makes it available at all treatment-relevant locations and thus ultimately improves the quality of care for patients. And all this driven by the processes and resources of each individual institution, whether practice, clinic or network.
We are pleased to be able to play a decisive role in shaping the future of the health care system day after day together with our great team of over 70 employees. We also receive active support from our office dogs and at the Monday breakfast we always start the new week motivated - in order to improve the digital health world for doctors and patients again.
