Hosted by media and PR veteran and CEO of Mojo Media, Justin Kelly, we chat to leaders on the front line on how to get started, what it takes to build a successful business, how to overcome challenges, and advice for those on a similar journey.
In this instalment, Justin speaks with Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, CEO of Coviu.
Coviu is Australia’s leading telehealth software company and a spinout of CSIRO’s Data61, offering video consultation software to healthcare businesses. As Australia’s largest telehealth platform, with over 300,000 sessions taking place per month, Coviu’s platform enables healthcare practitioners to conduct private video consultations with patients over the internet securely.
The platform also allows healthcare providers to replicate essential business operations digitally such as Medicare payments, triage, prescription and a digital waiting room for smoother integration of digital healthcare provision. It brings the specific workflows and tools necessary for healthcare into an online video call while satisfying regulatory requirements around security and privacy.
In this episode, Dr Pfeiffer talks through the widespread adoption of the telehealth platform; the explosion in demand for the service in the wake of the COVID pandemic; the big opportunities for the business next year with Coviu’s planned international expansion and the success of its recent capital raise.
