Docprime.com, the latest healthcare venture of Policybazaar Group, announced its consumer app for Android and iOS users. The app will ensure ease in booking appointments with over 25,000 doctors and 5,000 diagnostic labs at discounted rates across 34 cities of the country. This is a significant step for the company towards its aim of providing a healthy life for one and all.
The app will also allow patients to receive free online consultations and even buy preventive health packages.
According to Ashish Gupta, CEO, Docprime.com, “We at Docprime are committed to providing quality and affordable healthcare to all, and in the mode preferred by them. The launch of the mobile app is an extension of our services from a click of the mouse to a tap of the finger. The easy-to-use app, available to Android and iOS users aims to counter the most common reason of unavailability of time for not consulting or visiting a doctor. Also, with 302 million mobile handsets expected to be sold in India in 2019 as per a study, Docprime’s consumer app is a natural progression of being easily accessible to the maximum number of people.”
Consumers will be able to use the mobile phone application exactly the same way as the website of the company. By downloading the app, the existing users can easily log-on by entering their details. For others, a quick sign-up will be required only if a person is making an appointment with a doctor or will need a lab consultation. Its other key feature is the free online consultation with dedicated medical consultants that will be available to anyone through 365 days a year.
Docprime.com offers a seamless transition between the website and the app. Anyone who has used the website will smoothly be able to adapt to the functionality of the simple and user-friendly app. Also, with more millennials using the services and digital adoption increasing at a lightning speed, the app built on state-of-the-art technology is all set to provide a seamless experience.
There is also a onetime offer that can be availed by using the Coupon Code: APP100 which will give consumers a cash-back of up to Rs 200 when a booking a lab test or while scheduling an appointment with the doctor.
The company was launched in August last year and is dedicated to spreading awareness around the significance of preventive healthcare by imparting knowledge around the issue. Its affordable health packages and cashless transactions which allow customers to pay at the time of making a booking offer a discount of up to 50%. This is made possible only because of its strong belief of providing effective health services for one and all.
The company received an initial internal funding of $50 million (Rs 362 crores) from its parent company Policybazaar Group in September. It started with venturing into the main Indian cities, and now people can book appointments from anywhere and consult with the specialist's team of doctors. Over 1,00,000 doctors and leading hospital chains are likely to be added to its growing network by the end this year itself. Docprime.com is the third venture of the group which already owns insurtech (insurance-technology) player Policybazaar.com and lending marketplace, Paisabazaar.com.
