Vidal Healthcare leads funding for Doxper
Doxper, an app that helps doctors maintain patients’ medical records, has raised $1.1 million (Rs 7.2 crore) in a pre-Series A round of funding from existing investors led by Vidal Healthcare.
The firm will use the fresh funds to expand its geographical sales presence and to increase its research and development spend for new products in analytics, patient engagement and real-time interoperability.
Doxper is currently piloting its product in Bangladesh and Nigeria and is actively engaging with partners in the UK, Middle East, Southeast Asia, Brazil and South Africa to start operations by early next year. In India, the company is servicing doctors in Delhi/NCR, Jaipur, Pune, Bangalore and Mumbai.
The startup has developed an encoded pen-and-paper system, through which doctors can write prescriptions and patient information, and the data automatically gets transferred to the cloud. Patients can use the Doxper app to access their records, book follow-on appointments, and share reports with family. Hospitals can also use Doxper to digitise their records by integrating their Hospital Information System (HIS).
