About Coviu

We're on a mission to be a catalyst for life-changing online care anywhere.

At Coviu, we all come to work every day because we are passionate about breaking down the barrier of distance and enabling fair and equitable access to healthcare for everyone.

Virtual communication has become a standard way of doing business in corporations. Yet, when it comes to health, patients still need to see providers in person, which places a large burden on many.

For example, people in rural and remote areas have to travel many hours to meet with a psychologist, speech pathologist, or specialist. It’s not much better for the elderly, disabled or otherwise immobile people in urban areas. Even busy families and professionals are avoiding the dreaded time out needed to see a doctor.

Distance between healthcare providers and those they serve, even if it’s only a few kilometres, often requires enormous amounts of effort, time, and money to overcome. We aim to knock down this barrier by making video visits the new standard of care.

Making Telehealth The New Standard Of Care

Research has shown that up to 80% of clinician visits can be provided online with comparable clinical outcomes. Patients are demanding this convenient way of receiving healthcare and providers who embrace it will be rewarded with happier, healthier patients and higher revenues.

This is why we have built a software platform to make it effortless for you to introduce video and phone visits as a service offering to your patients.

Despite our lofty goals, we are realists and know change can be challenging. So we go out of our way to make it easy to slot telehealth visits into your workflows, and for patients to have a telehealth visit with you online from wherever they are.

We also give you superpowers through AI-enhanced clinical tools to make the telehealth consult even better than seeing a patient in person. And we round out our services with unparalleled support because we know the last thing you need in a busy practice is time spent on technology issues. At Coviu, we work tirelessly so the tech just works.

Our Story

Coviu was first created within the Australian research organisation CSIRO as part of research into telehealth delivery platforms. Working closely with clinicians, we found that existing consumer video calling software and corporate video conferencing applications were not appropriate for healthcare services.

Not only do they not satisfy the stringent security and privacy requirements of healthcare businesses, but they miss important business functions such as collecting payments, making appointment bookings, and gathering patient consent.

We set about co-creating Coviu with the input of clinicians and healthcare businesses and spun the company out of Data61/CSIRO with the support of venture capital investment from Main Sequence Ventures in May 2018.

Today, Coviu is a leading virtual care platform. Clinicians and patients alike trust Coviu to provide a secure, convenient virtual telehealth experience for their needs.
