Practo makes it easier for patients to access medical care with a doctor consultation available within five minutes.
Traditional medical care can be a challenge to access as many countries experience shortages of medical staff and increasing healthcare demands. Those in lower economic classes or living in rural areas have additional barriers to overcome when they require medical attention. Telemedicine is a solution that is seeing a recent surge in popularity, especially with the current strain on healthcare resulting from Covid-19.
Practo is a platform leading the way in changing how we access medical care – It connects patients almost instantly for consultations via chat, telephone, or a video call. This can be on their online platform or smartphone app.
Clinicians can prescribe medication for home delivery, order tests, and offer treatment plans. The access to qualified doctors allows patients to swiftly get help out of hours, and gain clarity on health issues in the comfort of their home.
Practo offers a free follow-up within three days of the initial consultation, and a money-back guarantee if the doctor is unable to assist through the online platform. With the Practo plus option, patients can have unlimited consultations with any speciality. Practo is currently available in India, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, and Brazil.
