#dedoc° was founded in 2012 by Bastian Hauck, who created the Twitter hashtag #dedoc to host weekly TweetChats for the German chapter of the Diabetes Online Community. It acted as a catalyst to grow a small group of diabetes bloggers into one of Europe’s strongest patient advocacy and peer support communities.
Activities such as Blood Glucose Bingo, the Diaversary Project and the #dedoc° Open Blog reach thousands of PWD throughout Germany, while #docday°, the #dedoc° voices and our network of dedicated Facebook groups connect some of the most influential KOLs in the DOC across Europe and beyond.
Dedoc Labs funded by Bastian Hauck is the legal entity behind #dedoc° and covers its entire operating budget. It specializes in providing patient-centric, user-driven consultancy services in healthcare communication, strategy and policy. Its DOClab task forces empower diabetes advocates to collaborate with industry and research while helping its clients leverage the full potential of true patient engagement and co-creation.
