The company has integrated the Uber API to seamlessly transport patients to their doctor or diagnostic lab in India, Indonesia, Singapore and the Philippines.

“We are using Uber’s world class technology to make access to quality health care easier to everyone and will soon extend our partnership into all of the new countries we operate in,” said Shashank ND, Founder and CEO at Practo. “Through this strategic collaboration with Uber, patients can now have a hassle free and relaxing experience when traveling to medical centers.”
