Healthcare booking platform Practo and ride-hailing technology platform Uber have announced a global partnership that help consumers to reach doctors.
Starting today, Practo users across India, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore who book an appointment on Practo will be able to see the closest Uber available when they get a reminder alert for their appointments.
Users can then click the reminder notification and complete the booking process.
“We work relentlessly towards providing a simplified healthcare experience that reduces consumer stress and anxiety at every level. We realized 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 Shashank ND, Founder & CEO, Practo.
