Private Emergency Health Australia (PEHA)
PEHA approaches hospitals to use our IP to open and operate Emergency Departments to give patients a choice in their healthcare. We mostly operate in Regional Australia, which we felt was being neglected to other parts of Australia. We decrease the health care burden on the ambulance service and public hospital system (and save the governement millions) We treat over 30,000 patients in our Emergency Departments every year. http://Peha.com.au
Coviu is a new video consultation platform to enable healthcare practitioners to deliver their consultations online. We are a business platform with credit card transactions, appointment bookings, and other workflow tools that integrate with practice management software. We also focus on an excellent video consultation experience. Great health consultations need more than just talking heads - they need sharing of high-quality medical imaging, pathology reports, device data, and clinical tools. Coviu provides this in online treatment rooms that look professional and are branded for the healthcare business. https://www.coviu.com/
One in seven people experience mental health problems in any given year. Depression is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year olds. Fewer than half of those affected by depression ever seek or receive treatment. HCI Insights is developing a family of apps to help society face mental health problems and improve general well-being. Our first product is Frank - a Fitbit for your mental health - developed primarily for frontline emergency service workers but also with the general population in mind.http://frankapp.ai
Our technology, called 'Piano' is based on 14 years of internationally funded research and 5 years of software development out of the Australian Institute of Health Innovation. Evidentli was formed in 2018, in order to commercialise the platform to the broader healthcare community. Evidentli is a B2B software as a service business that uses AI and Machine Learning to turn real world data into medical evidence in order to solve a number of problems that healthcare providers have been faced with for years, but have previously been unable to address.

Clinicians currently lack timely and actionable molecular data to make informed clinical decisions. They need to rely on blood tests, which are often unsuited for monitoring fast-moving molecular targets. Nutromics is developing Continuous Molecular Monitors (CMMs) that can measure clinically relevant biomarkers continuously and in real time, resulting in reduced morbidity and mortality, due to a lack of timely molecular patient data. https://www.nutromics.com.au/
Our web-based referral platform facilitates secure, digital communication between healthcare providers and automates laborious administrative workflows. http://www.consultmed.co

Theratrak encrypts client’s customised multi-media to create a more inclusive model of healthcare right there in the session. http://www.theratrak.co
