Netherlands largest and most visited healthcare website
Thuisarts.nl is an online health platform where people can access reliable and independent information from doctors about complaints and illnesses. Thuisarts.nl is visited by more than 1.7 million people each month and since the launch of the platform the number of GP visits was reduced in the Netherlands by 12%.
Ton Drenthen, program manager Thuisarts.nl: "Thuisarts.nl was created because we think it is important that patients have access to reliable and independent information. In addition to patients, almost all GP’s and more and more medical specialists use Thuisarts.nl. We are happy with the success of Thuisarts and proud of winning this European award for a Dutch website. We will continue to do our best to improve the website to remain the medical source of information for the Netherlands. "
Michel van Velde, founder of One Shoe, is proud that Thuisarts.nl has once again been proclaimed Website of the Year: "Thuisarts.nl is a wonderful initiative from NHG and since the launch of the platform in 2012, Thuisarts.nl has become the most visited healthcare website.
