Brazil: Practo has launched its healthcare facility in Brazil, the 5th largest economy in the world and a $ 200 Billion healthcare market. More importantly, a country with 200 million consumers who we can be helped to make better healthcare decisions and lead healthier lives.
The three components of the companies healthcare facility to be launched in Brazil include Practo Search, a provider of highest quality doctor listings, Practo Ray,a cloud-based practice management solution of choice used by doctors and clinics around the world and its award winning smartphone applications, a service that ensures that patients have the best possible healthcare experience on-the-go.
Practo Search , immediately, is going to cover over 5500 doctors and half the clinics of the city. The service would enable consumers to search through a verified database of doctors and find the right one. The doctor being looked for can be found by name, specialisation and even symptoms. Practo Search would enlists doctors on panel for free and disperses services to the consumer without a charge, as well. The doctors listed by Practo Search in Sau Paulo would be those who are individually verified in terms of experience, qualification, affiliations and specialization.
Insurance being an important aspect of the Brazilian market, the display would reflect the name of the one accepted by a particular medical practitioner/clinic.
Practo Ray, the second service offered in Brazil would involve simplifying & scheduling appointments and providing powerful billing and inventory management for doctors. It would also help create digital health records and prescriptions so that consumers always have their healthcare history available to them.
The companies smart phone applications would help healthcare providers be more efficient while providing higher quality care.
With the initial plan involving expanding doctor base in Sau Paulo, the second half of the expansion phase would include spreading reach of the healthcare service in Rio de Janeiro and eventually in all large cities of Brazil.
