COVID-19 has transformed India's healthcare sector. Doctor visits, diagnostic tests, and follow-up appointments made way for teleconsultations and telemedicine services overnight due to the pandemic. The accelerated digitisation in the sector led both patients and doctors online.

Several telemedicine and mobile health platforms recorded a surge in the demand for services due to coronavirus.

Bengaluru-based telemedicine giant Practo recently reported 10X growth in its teleconsultation services within the last six months. In an official statement, the company said 80 percent of its telemedicine users were first-time customers and approximately 50 percent of the demand was driven from non-metro cities. As of now, it has over 25,000 verified doctors listed on the platform offering online consultations.

“Digital healthcare today is witnessing more participation than ever before, and is seeing steady growth and progress, indicated by more number of entrepreneurs, more high-quality talent, and more capital,” said Shashank ND, Co-founder and CEO of Practo.

The announcement of telemedicine guidelines earlier in March also boosted the trust of both patients and doctors on the benefits of teleconsultation services, resulting in growth of mhealth startups such as Practo.
