Mumbai: Integrated healthcare company Practo has named Rahul Dravid as its first brand ambassador with a campaign marking its foray into secondary care services. 

Conceptualised by Spring Marketing Capital and directed by Shlok Sharma of Absolute Productions, the ad film demonstrates that Dravid’s values as a dependable sportsperson with a great command over his craft align with the brand’s vision of building access to quality healthcare.

In the first phase of the ‘You Are in Safe Hands’ campaign, the celebrated cricketer talks about the secondary care procedures under Practo Care Surgeries (PCS) in the hands of its team of experts. It covers key aspects of the new service, including the PCS experience centers, expert surgeons, use of the latest surgical technology, and financial support.

Seamless delivery of secondary care can be challenging given the lack of adequate support patients may get in terms of access to expert surgeons, right information, financial help and post-surgical support. Practo has attempted to find a solution to these with PCS, said the brand.

“Dravid embodies Practo’s spirit of always being dependable and trustworthy. Built on this understanding, our association with him is a step towards improving awareness - and thereby access - to quality secondary healthcare," said Practo executive vice president of marketing Srikanth Pinninti. "Given the superior surgical support that sportspeople routinely need, this endorsement conveys that the same is available to anyone today with PCS.”

The ad film will air on digital media platforms - including Disney+ Hotstar, Zee5, SonyLiv, Voot, MX Player, YouTube, Facebook and Instagram - across six key cities (Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi-NCR, Hyderabad, and Ahmedabad), where the ace cricketer will be seen promoting quality, convenient, and end-to-end delivery experience in secondary care with the help of expert surgeons on Practo.

“Practo has reimagined modern healthcare in India with its comprehensive digital services and integrated offline experience with Practo Care, helping us with our secondary healthcare needs," Dravid said. "The company has earned a name for itself as a leader in delivering patient-focused care - anytime, anywhere - and I’m glad to be associated with them.”

“Surgeries are considered a stressor for most patients, even though they can offer a lot of relief," said Spring Marketing Capital founder and creative partner Arun Iyer. “PCS combines easy access with medical expertise and state-of-the-art technology to offer patients an end-to-end experience."
