Mumbai-based health-tech startup Doxper has raised USD 750,000 for seed round of funding led by Vidal Health and GrowX Ventures. Other investors include Capier Investments, Globevestor and various individual investors in the medical space.
Dr. Girish Rao of Vidal Healthcare and Siddharth Dhondiyal of GrowX Ventures have joined the startup’s board of directors.
Doxper was founded in 2015 by three IIT alumni Shailesh Prithani, Randeep Singh and Pawan Jain. Prithani previously worked as a location manager at Schlumberger, a technology company in the oil-and-gas industry. Singh’s previous work experience includes holding an adjunct faculty position at the School of Life Sciences, as well as, positions at SAP labs and the Tata Memorial Center. Jain was an architect for Visible Alpha, an investment technology firm.
Doxper designs a digital pen that can record, archive and retrieve healthcare data. Users can read their writing on encoded paper, and data can also be transferred to the cloud, thus, enabling multi-platform access. The pen automatically records data transcription which is easier for doing research and analysis at a later time. Doxper can be integrated with the information system already existing at hospitals. The pen can help doctors stay connected to patients. For patients, Doxper can access and archive digitized prescriptions and health records. It also supports uploading and sharing of reports and files, allowing convenient monitoring of family health data and aiding in family health management. The pen can also help patients book follow-up appointments with their doctors.
The startup will use the newly raised funds to scale operations and enhance its technology platform.
Other players in the healthcare area in India include Zoctr, Lybrate, Tricog, 1mg, Touchkin, Click2Clinic and others.
