In a bid to make searching and booking a doctor's appointment easier and hassle-free, Practo and Microsoft have partnered to help people search and choose the best doctors in their nearby locality using Bing. The collaboration will enable an easier and effective search for people looking for right medical advice.
Users will be able to search and access details of doctors across 38 different cities in 10 regional languages including Hindi, Telugu, and Bengali. The new feature will enable Bing users to not just search for the best of doctors in town but also book doctor appointments online, consult online with doctors, order medicines and lab tests, store health records and even read health articles written by these doctors, all powered by Practo.
Bing users searching for doctors in their city can now view profiles of doctors along with their qualifications, experience, specialisations, and availability. The feature also enables people to view feedback and recommendations by the patients, thus, assisting users to select the ideal doctor nearby, at their convenience in their city.
Bing announced a similar integration with Zomato recently that allows users to see reviews, book a table online, or even order food from the search results.
