They say women make a house a home.
No wonder we are better at multitasking than men. Whether at home or in office, women juggle multiple roles and responsibilities with a smile. As each one of us know only too well, this is not easy. Often, in trying to meet these responsibilities, we sacrifice our own health, well-being and peace of mind.
Fortunately, we now live in a world that’s increasingly tech-savvy. When you don’t have time to do the groceries or go to the doctor for that nagging pain, there are now apps on your mobile that will deliver the services to you wherever you are and whenever you need. In a life where you can take very few things for granted, you can always rely on your mobile to get essential services delivered at home so you can stay healthy and happy.
Here are the top 5 apps that every woman should have on their phones and use daily to manage life without worry:
Did you know that women in India (over 50 years) are one of the fastest growing bases for online consultation of health issues?
This is one of the findings of the Practo report on India’s most comprehensive healthcare map on women. Practo studied 6 crore Indian women patients in 2018. They found a major 176% increase amongst women users who were using online consultation for healthcare and 31% growth for physical appointments. Most of them were looking for help in gynaecology and dermatology.
Given how sensitive some of our health issues can be, it could be embarrassing for women to discuss their problems openly – especially with strangers. Many resort to self-diagnosis, searching on google for symptoms and worse, try to medicate themselves. This is where the anonymity and complete privacy provided by Practo becomes very helpful. Women find online consultation easily accessible, private and trustworthy. You can access the service at any time of day or night and it takes less than 60 seconds to get connected to a doctor online! Women from smaller towns and cities use online consult to get access to top doctors who may be located far away. The consultation remains private between the patient and the doctor.
As for physical visits to doctors, using Practo’s country-wide directory of doctors, you can look up doctors for free with a simple Search and Book. Practo also lists Prime clinics/ hospitals that offer a range of guaranteed benefits to patients like online instant booking 24/7, wait time as low as 15 mins, assured meeting with the doctor selected (and not a substitute) and much more! Patients don’t need to pay any extra charges to avail this superlative care and help meet their healthcare needs at the click of a button!
You can also get lab tests done from the comfort of your home and get medicines delivered. In times when you are stressed, Practo can take care of your health, so you can take care of work and your loved ones.
All doctors on Practo are genuine and verified. You can see detailed, verified information about their degree(s), years of experience, location and fees on every doctor’s profile. You can also look up other patients’ past experience with doctors to understand if s/he will be the right doctor for you.
