Media Release – Nextcare HUAWEI Petal Search Engine

Nextcare improves access to healthcare in the Middle East by partnering with HUAWEI Petal Search Engine

  • 6,000+ MEA healthcare providers will be searchable by a large number of users on HUAWEI Petal Search, the fastest-growing mobile search engine
  • “Click-to-book” a doctor’s appointment capability supported by Nextcare’s Healthigo platform available to everyone, including patients outside the Nextcare network



Nextcare and global tech leader HUAWEI have completed the integration of Nextcare’s doctor appointment booking solution (Healthigo) into the HUAWEI Petal Search Engine.


Available to everyone across the Middle East & Africa (MEA) region, even patients outside the Nextcare network, users will be able to find healthcare provider information and book appointments through their Huawei mobile devices.


The latest move in Nextcare’s ecosystem strategy to transform access to healthcare through a global digital-first approach, managed by integrating with the HUAWEI Petal Search platform to take patient convenience to the next level.


Petal Search covers more than 170 countries, supporting over 70 languages and connecting with over 3,000 ecosystem partners. This represents a vast potential for Nextcare partner hospitals, medical centers, clinics and doctors, connecting them to patients in search of healthcare services.


More than 6,000 approved healthcare providers across the MEA Nextcare network will be searchable on HUAWEI Petal Search as part of a phased regional rollout. The UAE is the first market to go live with 1,200 providers offering the click-to-book doctor appointment feature.


Commenting on the partnership, Andrej Mekionis, Director of Digital & Marketing at Nextcare, said: “The agreement with HUAWEI is another significant step in expanding our digital health ecosystem. Millions of people use Petal Search to find vital information. We are delighted to enable them with easy access to our community of healthcare providers and doctors. Healthigo, our exclusive medical provider search and appointment booking platform available to all patients, makes it easy to find the right medical provider for every need.“


Irrespective of their health insurance provider, HUAWEI Petal Search users can easily locate a provider to book an appointment. The embedded Huawei map link provides navigation directions to the selected medical facility.
