Dr Silvia Pfeiffer is Coviu’s CEO and Co-Founder and has over 20 years of experience building new Web Video Solutions.

We congratulate Silvia on all her amazing success and for being a transformative force for women in healthcare. 





The story of Coviu all started when Dr Silvia Pfeiffer was working at the CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) on research into telehealth delivery platforms. 


Working closely with clinicians, Silvia found that existing consumer and corporate video calling software wasn’t meeting the needs of healthcare professionals. Not only did the software not meet the strict security and privacy requirements, there was no way to integrate the many tools and functions used on a regular basis: collecting payments, making appointments, gathering patient consent, and more.

There wasn’t an adequate tool available, so she built one. Fast forward to today and Coviu has achieved over 7 million consultations and has grown from conducting 400 consults a day, to now supporting over 10,000 daily consultations with over 90,000 clinicians using Coviu worldwide.
