Practo, a leading healthcare company has launched its newly customized app called "Practo Ray", which will provide specialty specific modules for physicians, pediatricians and dentists.
"With the launch of Practo Ray for specialties, we will be able to provide better tools to doctors and significantly improve patient care for some of the biggest healthcare issues plaguing our country, including controlling lifestyle diseases and ensuring immunizations for infants and children," said Shashank ND, founder and CEO of Practo.
The Practo Ray-Physicians feature will enable doctors to digitally prescribe lab tests and generate digital lab reports. It also includes nearly 100,000 commonly prescribed medicines and brands, making it easier for a doctor to quickly find and prescribe the right medicine.
Practo Ray-Pediatricians feature will help immunize children on time. It uses five automated WHO standard growth charts. These records will be stored on the child's Practo account and can be accessed, updated and shared with other doctors as and when required.
"It helps the parents to document their child's growth pattern including height-for-age, weight-for-age weight-for-height and body mass index-for-age," Practo added.
The module would also enable parents to receive automated vaccination reminders by simply filling in the child's date of birth. The software would generate a vaccination schedule for 10 years automatically.
Practo Ray-Dentists allows dentists to stay in control of high-value procedures such as crowns, bridges and dentures, monitor and update the status of lab orders conveniently on a single dashboard and easily schedule appointments with patients. This would reduce patients' waiting time and eliminate unwanted visits.
Over the next few months, Practo Ray will cover more specialties including ophthalmology and gynecology. The new specialties are available in India, Singapore and Philippines.
