Gujarat-based PurpleDocs, has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from investors including KellyGamma, Lead Angels and a few high net-worth individuals (HNIs). The startup will utilize the funds to expand its operations in the national capital region (NCR), Maharashtra and Karnataka and to enhance its technology as per techcircle reports.
PurpleDocs is flagship service offering that aims to be the number one healthcare information management service of the country in coming years.
Deepak Gupta and Pooja Gupta were well settled in US for more than 8 years before they shifted to India. He felt the necessity of a better system – efficient and cost-effective, which seeded the idea of PurpleDoc as his mother was diagnosed with cancer.
The service is helping 50+ healthcare institutions in managing their patient records efficiently while allowing instant access to them over the cloud and at the same time preserving the originals in secured archival units for access whenever needed.
While talking to ET, Deepak Gupta, Founder & CEO, PurpleDocs, said, “While the prevalence of healthcare records management as an integrated technology solution is still at a nascent stage in India, it is important to note that more than 10 crore new patient records are generated in the country annually.”
It is currently operational in Surat, Ahmedabad, Rajkot and Vadodara and has over 60 hospitals as its clients. The firm was initially bootstrapped and incubated at the International Centre for Entrepreneurship and Technology (iCreate).
