Practo  ties up with Uber to solve patients' last mile hassles

Bangalore, November 17, 2015: Asia’s largest healthcare booking platform , Practo,   has addressed, patients'  'last mile'  problems -- by teaming up with leading cab aggregator, Uber.
Starting today, Practo users across India, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore who book an appointment on Practo’s award-winning app will be able to see the closest Uber available when they get a reminder alert for their appointments. Users can then click the reminder notification and complete the booking process. New users who book their first appointment on the Practo app can use the promotion code - UBERPRACTOIN to avail two free rides, up to  Rs 200 per ride, with Uber. This offer is valid till December  31,  2015.
In addition to viewing the estimated fare and how long it will take for the Uber to arrive, the driver’s app will be prefilled with the final destination’s address at the very beginning of the trip. On requesting an Uber, the user’s final destination will be autofilled on the driver’s app once the trip starts, making the entire experience seamless. The next phase of integration will involve notifying the user to request for an Uber, an hour prior to the appointment.
The partnership also comes with an inaugural offer specific to India where any existing or new user booking an appointment on Practo till  November  30, gets a free ride to and from the doctor’s clinic.
The partnership will soon expand to cover more countries as Practo and Uber continue their global expansion at a rapid pace.
