Over the next few quarters, we’ll continue to bring focused solutions to more specialties and improve efficiencies for doctors and help them treat more patients much effectively,” said Shashank ND, Founder & CEO, Practo.

Practo Ray for Physicians
Designed to improve doctors’ ability to treat more patients in a day, this unique service will enable the doctor to digitally prescribe lab tests, generate digital lab reports and check the real-time status of patients’ test. It also includes nearly 100,000 commonly prescribed medicines & brands, thereby allowing the doctor to find and prescribe the right medicine in seconds.
Practo Ray for Physicians will further help doctors take chronic care to the next level. The service also enables the Doctor to prescribe lifestyle advice by using pre-set templates for all common chronic diseases.
“Practo Ray’s Electronic Medical Records provide immense value to the field of medicine. I don’t store a single piece of paper for my patients at my clinic. It’s all saved online, and I can access it from anywhere from any device. Apart from the convenience and cost saving, I think having digital records keeps me better informed of the patient's history & symptoms and helps me make faster & better diagnosis and treatment plans," Dr. Joyeeta Basu, General Physician, Doctors Hub, Delhi NCR.
This advice can be easily emailed directly to patients as a digital prescription into their secure Practo health account. Additionally, the Regular reminder notification feature ensures that the patient does not miss their medicine dosage and also follow up on the treatment advice on time, vastly improving disease management and recovery.
Practo Ray for Paediatricians
Immunisations play a vital role in protecting children against serious infections and disease outbreaks, and have now brought under control most of the diseases which were once considered debilitating and fatal. Practo Ray and Paediatricians on Practo recognise the importance and value of immunising your children on time.
“Practo Ray is a great improvement for my practice. My patients just love the digital records and especially the neat & tidy prescriptions," Dr Poonam Sambhaji, Pediatrician, Dr. Poonam Sambhaji’s Child & Newborn Clinic, Goa
Practo Ray Paediatric EMR also enables the parents to receive automated vaccination reminders– By simply filling in the child’s DOB, the software will be able to generate a vaccination schedule for 10 years automatically. This will get recorded on the child’s Practo account which parents can access to ensure they do not miss on a child’s vaccination date.
Practo Ray for Dentists
Practo Ray Dental EMR 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, control revenue flow, stay abreast with all the pending lab orders and upcoming procedures, easily schedule appointments with patients depending on the status of their orders and as a result of all of this, the patients’ waiting time is reduced and unwanted visits are eliminated.
Additionally, the service also provides a feature called Dental Charting - a visual documentation tool to map the current dental health of a patient. It helps dental practitioners to easily create a visual documentation of observations, continue using familiar notations with customizable legends and freehand tools, educate patients with visual images, document the current state, monitor the progress and ensure the best care. Consumers can also view the entire procedure, get their digital dental records, dental procedure updates, test reports and prescription details on the Practo app automatically without having to collect it from the clinic or get it via email.
“When I came to India in 2007, I was looking for practice management software which was comparable and while I did find a couple of them, they still had a long way to go. Then came along Practo Ray, which was introduced to me by a colleague and I have never looked back since. Kudos to you guys! Keep up the great work," Dr Sandhya Ramanujam, Dental Surgeon, Saama Wellness Center & Perfect 32 Dental Care Clinic, Bengaluru.
At the launch, Practo has 150 Paediatricians who have generated over 180,000 Growth charts and approximately 97,000 Immunisation reminders till date. There are over 70 dentists using the Dental EMR product to manage 2400 lab orders and over 1200 dental charts as well.
