February Wrap Up - Discover The Latest at Coviu!

It's been another busy month at Coviu from podcasts, upcoming industry events, and a number of exciting product updates. We are thrilled to keep building a virtual care platform that enables clinicians to deliver patient/client outcomes efficiently and securely. 

This year we have officially surpassed 9 million+ consultations delivered together on our platform. This is an amazing representation of the scale of care that is being provided virtually, and we hope we can continue to provide a platform that enables clinicians and patients alike to deliver and receive care no matter their location. 




Upcoming Industry Event



We are delighted to be exhibiting at the ATA2023 Annual Conference & Expo in San Antonio, Texas from the 4th - 6th of March 2023.

At ATA2023, discover and learn from industry-leading speakers, innovators, and front-line providers focused on creating the right systems, providing the right training, and developing the right tools to entrench telehealth.

Register to attend and swing by the Coviu booth - #1108!
We'd love to see you.








Silvia Pfeiffer on the Future of Telehealth: Fear and Greed Podcast

Listen to Dr. Silvia Pfeiffer on the Fear and Greed Podcast Interview on 'How the CSIRO (Australia's leading multidisciplinary science and engineering research center) helped shape the future of telehealth'. Dr. Pfeiffer speaks to Sean Alymer about how telehealth was already in use prior to Covid-19, how things took a giant leap forward during the pandemic, and what needs to happen now for virtual care to continue to have a positive impact on the healthcare system.

In-Call Text Chat Improvements


Coviu's in-call text chat function now allows call hosts the ability to download the chat history of the consultation as a text file. Practitioners can keep downloaded chat files as records in their EHRs. Formatting within the chat has also been improved to allow better visualization of who has sent each message. 

Many of our customers have told us they find the in-call chat feature specifically helpful when clients/patients want to talk about things they are hesitant to say in front of nearby people due to fear or embarrassment. 







In-Call Mute Update


If a participant is muted in a call and forgets to unmute themselves when trying to speak, an 'Are you talking?' notification will appear for the muted participant. This will appear above the mute microphone control.
