For PhonePe’s 200+ million users, DocsApp is providing medical assistance for any Coronavirus-related query/consultation free of cost and is offering discounts up to 90% for non-COVID consultations. This initiative has helped over 3.5 lakh Indians across the country.

Commenting on the traction received so far, Rituraj Rautela, Head of PhonePe Switch said, “We are excited to have DocsApp as a partner on the PhonePe Switch platform. DocsApp’s tech platform enables millions of our users to consult genuine doctors on any health issues from the safety of their homes. Users have been consulting doctors online, uploading their prescriptions and ordering medicines from DocsApp instantly from within the PhonePe app itself. Through PhonePe Switch, our effort has been to build a partner app ecosystem, which offers our users a very convenient way to access and engage with multiple apps, while enabling faster customer acquisition and higher engagement for our partners.”
