Number of Halodoc Users
Currently, Halodoc serves 20 million active users every month. Halodoc’s integrated service connects users with 20,000 doctors, more than 4,000 partner pharmacies, and 2,000 health facilities spread across nearly 200 cities.
Halodoc was previously named by CB Insights as one of the 150 most promising digital health startups worldwide in 2019 and 2020 through its various innovations and technological capabilities.

Halodoc also took the second position for Trending Applications in the Indonesian App Store, competing with cross-sector applications such as e-commerce and other super apps.
“So one of the problems is the limited number of doctors in Indonesia. There are only 4 doctors per 10,000 population, then also the geography of our country which is an archipelago so that doctors are usually only in big cities,” he said on Friday (27/8/2021).
Doddy explained that the Halodoc application has increased, especially for telemedicine services for people who want to consult health.
Then health shops that also provide services for delivering medicines to their homes, especially in terms of restricting people’s mobility, have also increased.
Doddy added that at the beginning of the pandemic last year in the second quarter of 2020, he saw doctor consulting services grow very significantly.
This year, especially in the second quarter of 2021, the ‘Make Doctor’s Appointment’ service showed quite positive growth when the second wave of the pandemic hit Indonesia.
