Practo and Uber platform have announced a global partnership that will make it easier for consumers to reach doctors.

Starting today, Practo users across India, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore who book an appointment on Practo’s app will be able to see the closest Uber available when they get a reminder alert for their appointments.

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 31stDecember 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 30th November gets a free ride to and from the doctor’s clinic.

The partnership today is in four markets – India, Indonesia, Philippines and Singapore and will soon expand to cover more countries as Practo and Uber continue their global expansion at a rapid pace.
