New Delhi: Asia’s leading healthcare platform Practo on Thursday announced the launch of Practo Ray.A customised app that will provide specialty-specific modules for physicians, paediatricians and dentists to begin with.

“With the launch of Practo Ray for specialties, we will be able to provide better tools to doctors and significantly improve patient care for some of the biggest healthcare issues plaguing our country, including controlling lifestyle diseases and ensuring immunisations for infants and children,” said Shashank ND, founder and CEO of Practo, in a statement.

The Practo Ray-Physicians feature will enable doctors to digitally prescribe lab tests and generate digital lab reports.

It also includes nearly 100,000 commonly prescribed medicines and brands, making it easier for a doctor to quickly find and prescribe the right medicine.

The regular reminder notification feature ensures that the patient does not miss their medicine dosage and also follow up on the treatment advice on time.

Practo Ray-Paediatricians feature will help immunise children on time. It uses five automated WHO standard growth charts.

“It helps the parents to document their child’s growth pattern including height-for-age, weight-for-age weight-for-height and body mass index-for-age,” the Practo added in the statement.

These records will be stored on the child’s Practo account and can be accessed, updated and shared with other doctors as and when required.

The module would also enable parents to receive automated vaccination reminders by simply filling in the child’s date of birth. The software would generate a vaccination schedule for 10 years automatically.

Practo Ray-Dentists allows dentists to stay in control of high-value procedures such as crowns, bridges and dentures, monitor and update the status of lab orders conveniently on a single dashboard and easily schedule appointments with patients.

This would reduce patients’ waiting time and eliminate unwanted visits.

Over the next few months, Practo Ray will cover more specialties including ophthalmology and gynaecology.

The new specialties are available in India, Singapore and Philippines.

Hyderabad: Practo, Asia’s largest healthcare booking platform, and Uber, the world’s leading ride-hailing technology platform, have announced today a global partnership that will make it easier and quicker for consumers to reach doctors.

Starting Monday, Practo users across India, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore who book an appointment on Practo’s app will be able to see the closest Uber available when they get a reminder alert for their appointments, said a statement.

Users can then click the reminder notification and complete the booking process.

New users who book their first appointment on the Practo app can avail two free rides, up to Rs.200 per ride, with Uber. This offer is valid till December 31.

The partnership also comes with an inaugural offer specific to India, where any existing or new user booking an appointment on Practo till November 30 gets a free ride to and from the doctor’s clinic.

We realised that transportation issues often bring additional stress to a doctor’s visit — having to drive through traffic, then hunt for parking — all while you or your loved one is sitting in the car feeling ill is a terrible experience.

 

“There are also many patients who may not be able to drive themselves to a doctor at all. Our goal with this partnership is to completely remove this anxiety by integrating with Uber’s incredible experience and bringing that to our consumers,” said Practo founder and CEO N.D. Shashank.

Uber India president Amit Jain said: “The technology integration through this partnership reflects our common commitment to create seamless experience for all our user.”
