Practo

Practo has emerged as a leading healthcare technology company for individuals seeking convenient and efficient healthcare solutions. With its comprehensive suite of services, Bengaluru-based Practo is changing how people approach medical care, making it easier, faster, and more accessible.


Founded in 2008, Practo connects millions of patients with a network of doctors, clinics, hospitals, and diagnostic centres through its user-friendly ecosystem.

With Practo's online pharmacy, patients can order prescribed medications and have them delivered to their doorstep. This service ensures that individuals can access the medicines they need, without the hassle of visiting a physical pharmacy.
