Shashank ND, Founder & CEO, Practo, envisions a world where technology will help consumers find the best doctors with a few clicks.

Today, digitization and technological advancements are re-shaping healthcare delivery and the way the segment is perceived by healthcare practitioners. Being the pioneers in this segment, we've been successful in implementing a technology model that caters to doctors and patients in the most efficient way, which sets us apart from other players in the market.

By identifying the gap between doctors and patients, we've been successful in helping consumers to reach out to the right doctor on the basis of locality, specialty, availability, customer feedback and costs.

We're on a mission to help improve human health and longevity and visualizes a patient friendly healthcare ecosystem enabled by Practo, where patients and doctors are seamlessly connected with a secure and easy flow of health information. We want Practo to be "Your health app." The only app you need for any healthcare related activity.

With Practo, healthcare is already moving in the direction of being mobile across India and the world-with the use of mobile technology we're bridging the gap between the doctors and patients on a global level.

Using clinical and financial data to predict outcomes, cut costs, reduce preventative hospitalizations, and keep patients healthier is part of our goal to help mankind live healthier longer, lives. Accessible digital healthcare processes and records will make new online experiences for patients, doctors, and all other healthcare sectors. If one aims to transform healthcare and make it more agile, cost effective and value driven SMAC is the way to go.

What are your future plans?

We'll add more features, products and several more categories including hospitals, diagnostic centers as well as spas, salons, wellness and fitness centers. We'll also continue to add top notch talent to our world class team of over 2,000 Practeons and aim to add 1,000 more Practeons by next year.
