MedPiper will use the newly acquired product and technology to help doctors and HCPs to become creators for its online healthcare magazine, JournoMed.
BANGALORE, India, March 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — MedPiper, a Y-Combinator and MeITy, Govt of India backed healthcare company, has acquired MedWriter, an AI writing assistant for doctors. MedWriter is a product designed and built by Lonere Labs, a Bangalore-based product lab run by Abhijeet Katte.
