India’s leading healthcare start-up Practo continues to stay in the news. Just days after acquiring Insta Health solutions (link), Practo today announced the acquisition of Qikwell (an hospital appointment scheduler) whose whole team will be joining Practo.
Started by Krishna Prasad and Raghavendra Prasad, Qikwell is an appointment schedule that uses proprietary technologies and algorithms to reduce customer waiting time and provides a better optimisation of hospital operations. The company is already in leading hospitals like Fortis, Narayana Hrudalaya and Manipal.
Practo itself claims to have over 200,000 healthcare professionals and 10,000 hospitals on its platform. With this acquisition it will also have 6000 of India’s top doctors that have on-boarded with Qikwell.
