Revolutionising Virtual Care with 'A Connected System of Action' Strategy

Coviu's evolution into a unified virtual care engagement platform has been a game-changer in the industry. Over the past year, we've introduced several key features, such as phone and group therapy capabilities, which have streamlined communication for healthcare providers. This integration not only enhances workflow efficiency but also addresses critical challenges like interoperability, ultimately leading to improved healthcare outcomes. Coviu has truly become a comprehensive 'care-system of action,' offering an all-inclusive solution for healthcare providers.

Our platform boasts a range of standout features compared to competitors, including:

  • Remote workflows mirroring clinical processes.

  • Simple and secure video conferencing with ISO 27001 accreditation, HIPAA compliance and end-to-end data encryption.

  • Integrated phone and text consultations.

  • Group therapy rooms accommodating up to 20 participants.

  • Remote patient monitoring solutions in partnership with Alcidion and the Clinician.

  • Payment transactions within calls.

  • A robust Apps marketplace featuring standardised assessment tools in collaboration with Pearson Clinical, as well as informal assessment tools through partnerships such as eLr.

  • Access to 2M lingo™ by 2M Language Services, offering seamless, in-app language interpretation for Coviu video calls in over 250 languages, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages and AUSLAN.

These expanded capabilities empower clinicians to tailor Coviu's platform to their specific clinical needs, simplifying clinic management, enhancing reporting for Medicare audits, and ensuring secure and effective healthcare access for all.

Measuring Success as Social Impact

At Coviu, we measure success on multiple fronts, including monetary growth, market share impact, and adoption rates. However, the most crucial measure of our success is the social impact we have achieved.

Our mission at Coviu is clear: to make healthcare accessible for everyone and to improve healthcare accessibility for all. This includes collaborating with key health influencers to ensure legislation and government incentives align with this vision.

From a clinician's perspective, virtual care helps reduce no-shows, streamlines multidisciplinary care and enables efficient follow-ups via our platform.

For patients, Coviu offers greater convenience and accessibility to healthcare services. Specialists who may have long waiting lists or are located far away become more accessible through our platform.

Most importantly, Coviu is bridging the gap in health inequities for those living in rural and remote areas, as well as the elderly, by providing access to healthcare. We advocate for access where existing constraints on telehealth benefits still limit Australians' unconditional access to remote healthcare.
