 Online Healthcare Platform 'Practo' Enters Malaysia

Online doctor discovery platform Practo Technologies Pvt. Ltd has launched its services in Malaysia, in line with the company's plans to branch out to at least 10 developing countries by the end of the year.

Practo was founded in 2008 by Shashank ND and Abhinav Lal. The company has two flagship products viz Practo Search which is a doctor search engine, and Practo Ray, a B2B software product that helps doctors manage large number of patients and digital healthcare records every year.


"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," Shashank N.D., co-founder and chief executive at Practo, said in a statement.

Starting today, consumers in Kuala Lumpur will be able to search for doctors across more than 350 clinics and 500 doctors listed on the platform. With over 50 percent coverage of private practices in Kuala Lumpur, Practo claims to be the largest such database for the city.

There is little competition for Practo in Malaysia. Only this September an app called BookDoc launched in the country. In the next few months, Practo plans to increase its product line and expand to more geographies.

Last month, Practo entered the Indonesian market by encapsulating 4200 verified doctors in over 60% of all clinics across Jakarta DKI. Malaysia has been the fourth market in Southeast Asia after Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia. There are more than 200,000 doctors, 5,000 diagnostic centers and 10,000 hospitals listed on its platform.
