Healthtech IoT startup Doxper has raised $750K in a Seed round of funding led by Vidal Health and growx ventures. Other investors who participated in the round include Capier Investments, Globevestor as well as private individuals in the medical space.
Commenting on the decision, Girish Rao and Siddharth Dhondiyal said, “Doxper is trying to solve a problem that is inherent and specific to developing countries like India and not blatantly copying what’s applicable in the west and replicating here. The problem of not recording healthcare data in digital format is an expensive one and when solved has benefits of exponential proportions.”
Doxper is based out of Delhi and Bengaluru. It plans to use the newly raised funds to scale up operations and enhance the technology platform, according to an official statement.
Using Old School Pen And Paper To Modernise Patient Records And Management In Indian Healthcare
Doxper is a pen-and-paper smart solution for doctors that uses an aluminum and stainless steel-coated ‘pen’ that records data such as prescriptions, patient histories etc. on encoded paper with the help of data science algorithms. As per the website, the pen can hold the data of 1,000 prescriptions at a time and works on auto-power. The solution fits seamlessly into the existing clinical workflow without altering any step of the doctor-patient interaction. This data is then automatically transferred to the cloud, where doctors can easily access it on multiple platforms.
