Today, a Globevestor portfolio company, Doxper, has announced its Series A round. Doxper aims to be one of the largest healthcare informatics company in India & SE Asia, and helps hospitals & doctors digitize prescriptions.
There’s no question that the current practice of writing prescriptions by hand on a paper, followed by doctors in India, is archaic and will be replaced in the future with more tech solutions. This practice is also the reason why digitizing prescriptions has been such a tough problem to solve till now. However, it also makes for a classic case study in change management. How do you make an industry move to a new-age solution, when the current habits are well-entrenched and honestly, are more efficient for the practitioners?
