Latest developments in Quin Doctors practices

In recent months there has been a lot of attention for the Quin Dokters practices within primary care and also in the media. The immediate reason for this were the capacity problems at our practice in Amsterdam. We would like to explain the latest developments and the steps that Quin is taking to ensure accessible and high-quality general practitioner care.

Today we announce that Quin will fully focus on its mission: developing a digital care platform that empowers patients to manage their own healthcare and that supports and strengthens general practitioners and specialists. In the coming period the Quin Doctors practices will be transferred to partners who want to commit themselves to managing the practices, with or without Quin as a digital partner. We would like to explain this further.

In 2020 Quin acquired eleven general practices to be able to further develop its platform together with patients and general practitioners. We see – and have also experienced firsthand in our own practices – that the need for digital support as a solution to some of the structural challenges in primary care is more pressing than ever.  

Working with these practices has allowed us to further develop the platform and learn many valuable lessons. We will include these lessons in the further design of our platform. By transferring our practices, we can fully focus again on the development of our platform, as well as offering the platform under license to general practices. This way, we aim to make healthcare innovations widely available, thereby contributing to future-proof primary care.

It goes without saying that during the transition of our practices, the patient's interests remain paramount. We will ensure that each practice will be transferred to a suitable partner. The precise details and timing of the transfer will therefore differ per practice and location. Being able to provide the right care for our patients is paramount in selecting the most suitable partners. In addition, we will do everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible for our patients and Quin Doctors employees.

We are convinced that the Quin platform enables GPs to focus on what really matters:  providing high-quality care with personal attention to the patient.
