- How do you charge for Prime? Why do you charge a one time fee per patient? Why is fee for 6 months duration? If it’s a technology fee, shouldn’t it be each time?
We charge the clinic/hospital a one time technology fee the first time a patient uses our technology to connect with the clinic/hospital. This one-time fee is valid for a period of 6 months. Within the 6 month period, unlimited repeat appointments are allowed and are not charged for.
Our data shows that on average a patient will connect with a clinic/hospital multiple times in a 6 month period and instead of charging each time we charge it upfront. This is for two reasons;
1. It ensures compliance at the clinic end so they don’t dissuade patients from booking all their appointments with Practo.
2. It ensures patients continue to enjoy this superior Prime visit experience every time they want to go to the clinic/hospital within that period.
- What does the technology fee mean?
Practo charges the clinic or hospital a one time technology fee the first time a patient uses our technology to connect with them. This is valid for the unique connection period, on a rolling basis. Within this period, unlimited repeat appointments are allowed and are not charged for.
- What does Practo Prime cost? Are you charging me for patients?
Absolutely not. We charge the clinic/hospital a one time technology fee the first time a patient uses our technology to connect with the clinic/hospital. This one-time fee is valid for the unique connection period, on a rolling basis. Within this period, unlimited repeat appointments are allowed and are not charged for.
- With this added cost wouldn’t the doctors be forced to increase costs for the patient?
Absolutely not. To clarify, we do not charge doctors. We charge clinics and hospitals for the technology we provide to them. Our technology provides several benefits to them such as:
1. 24×7 Instant booking system: Automated booking experience.
2. Smart Calling System: A superior voice calling experience through Practo VN a Virtual number technology, that auto-reconnects on-call failure, records conversations for providers to access the calls later and more.
3. Efficiency: Automated booking provides a significant improvement in efficiencies as a lot of the staff time gets freed up from managing incoming bookings.
4. Strong word of mouth: Ability to deliver a superior visit experience which leads to high patient loyalty and strong positive word of mouth.
Note that this is a one time technology fee charged the first time a patient uses our technology to connect with the clinic/hospital. This one-time fee is valid for a period of 6 months. Within this 6 month period, unlimited repeat appointments are allowed and are not charged for.
- With Practo Prime, are you indirectly promising transactions/appointments?
Not at all. Practo Prime in no way guarantees any appointments or patients to establishments.
- Will Practo Prime help me get more patients?

The choice of the healthcare provider and whether or not to book an appointment is completely up to the patient.
