In In­dia, the com­pany is ser­vic­ing doc­tors in Delhi/NCR, Jaipur, Pune, Ban­ga­lore and Mum­bai.

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).
