Practo Launches in Malaysia to Provide Millions Access to Healthcare
October 28, 2015, Kuala Lumpur: Practo, Asia’s leading healthcare platform, today announced its entry into the Malaysian market, bringing its award-winning products – Practo Search and Practo Ray – to the country.
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 becomes the largest database for the city of its kind.
Over the next few weeks Practo will expand its coverage within Kuala Lumpur to have almost all the private practitioners available on the platform. Practo’s goal is to list all the healthcare professionals in Malaysia. To make sure the data is reliable, Practo‘s own team combs through every street to verify all doctors. Practo verifies and lists doctors for free and does not charge consumers or doctors to find, book, or receive appointments.
Practo is in the unique position of having a globally respected business-to-business (B2B) software product, Practo Ray, which is seamlessly integrated with its consumer offering, Practo Search. Practo Ray will be available as an annual subscription starting at RM300 a month.
“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. Our goal is to provide a platform where our offerings work seamlessly together to deliver the best experience for all users,” said Shashank ND, Founder & CEO, Practo.
In the next few months, Practo will expand both geographically and in its product lines. Practo will cover Kuala Lumpur and surrounding areas including Petaling Jaya, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Puchong, Klang, and Seremban. Practo also plans to be present in northern Malaysia including Georgetown, Ipoh, Taiping, and Alor Setar.
Additionally, Practo will introduce more healthcare products across wellness, fitness, preventive, and curative medicine in Malaysia. All of Practo’s products will be available on the web as well as on the Practo mobile app available for free on all iOS and Android devices. It is a convenient single go-to resource for all consumer healthcare needs.
Practo currently has a 15 member launch team in Kuala Lumpur which will expand as it widens its footprint across Malaysia. Practo will continue to make investments in Malaysia to grow its presence, cover more areas, and ensure that consumers have the best healthcare experience on the planet.
“We are really excited to enter Malaysia and help millions of consumers make better healthcare decisions. This is our fourth market in Southeast Asia after Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia. Digitization of healthcare is integral to building a healthy nation and we’re positive that our products can help do that in Malaysia as well” added Shashank ND, Founder & CEO, Practo.
