It’s a story many healthcare providers are familiar with. The balancing act of completing paperwork, seeing patients and travelling for work, whilst still making time for personal obligations, can be utterly exhausting. But there is a solution.
Coviu prides itself on its ease of use, whereby its software works on even the most basic inbuilt webcams, speakers and microphones. Coviu is browser-based and therefore works on the majority of commonly owned devices such as laptops, desktops, iPhones or tablets. However, to improve the audiovisual quality of your calls, or if your device does not come with a camera, speaker, or microphone, or if you'd like to add a document or medical camera, additional hardware may be of use to you.

Almost half of all Australians will suffer from mental illness at some stage in their lives, yet many will refuse, or be unable to seek professional help due to social stigmas and a lack of access to services. Remote and regional dwellers are particularly affected, as geographical and social isolation can reduce the number of mental health services available.
