More than 98% of doctors in Bangladesh do not keep digital records of their patients. When we say digital records, it refers to prescriptions, test records, treatment plan/protocol and even personal details.
Solving a problem of this magnitude, with effective tools and applications, along with the implementation of the software to solve it is no easy task. Patients also face a huge problem when they lose the only paper-based prescription or treatment plan/test results to show to the doctors. Problems like bad handwriting on prescriptions are just added layer of hassle to the entire process. Patients are often handed out wrong medicines and the effects of this catastrophe are creating humongous consequences even in death tolls. The responsibility is taken by none and the victims end up being the victim.
Jobayer Ahmed, founder, and CEO of Easypres.com said “by far we have spoke with over than 15000 doctors across the country. According to a survey we did, 84% of the doctors are willing to use software in their desktop/laptop in their personal practice. Our software easypres can be used in both online and offline setups. The less availability of uninterrupted internet is the main reason for both options.”
The other co-founder Syed Takshed Karim said, “Currently 900 doctors all over the country are using the software and we are targeting to digitally empower 11000 doctors across the nation in 2018”.
