Continuing its expansion outside the Indian market, Practo Technologies, India’s leading online doctor service, announced its entry into the Malaysian market – enabling users to search for doctors across more than 350 clinics and 500 doctors listed on the platform. Apart from India and Malaysia, Practo also has presence in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.
Founded in 2008 by Shashank ND and Avbhinav Lal, Practo provides online management services for medical practitioners/ hospitals and also serves as a doctor discovery platform. Practo has approximately 2 lakh doctors and 8,000 hospitals on its database.
Commenting on the developments, Shashank ND, founder & CEO, Practo said, “In the next few months, Practo will expand both geographically and in its product lines. Practo Ray and Practo Search come together to create the world’s first healthcare hyperloop, connecting the entire healthcare ecosystem and helping consumers make better healthcare decisions. Digitization of healthcare is integral to building a healthy nation and we’re positive that our products can help do that in Malaysia as well.”
Practo verifies and lists doctors for free and does not charge consumers or doctors to find, book, or receive appointments. Practo Ray is the cloud-based practice management solution for doctors and clinics, which helps to simplify scheduling as well as billing and inventory management for doctors. It also helps create digital health care records and prescriptions so consumers always have their healthcare history available to them right inside the app.
Meanwhile, Practo Search enables consumers to search through this verified database of healthcare professionals and find the one that’s right for them.
