As digital technology advances exponentially, the need to adopt technology to help meet the challenges in healthcare has never been clearer. E-health continues to rise globally and we are leading the way in Australia, bringing the benefits of digital health and helping to empower people of all ages as they take more control over their health.
In June 2012, 4,000 bookings had been made on HealthEngine. Today, just three years later, this has increased to 1,000,000 bookings and a health appointment is booked every 20 seconds compared to every 2.5 hours in 2012. We plan to continue this momentum, with 120,000 bookings a month its projected bookings will increase by a further 300 per cent within the next 18 months.
Dr Marcus Tan, HealthEngine CEO and Medical Director, says the company will continue to innovate its services to further accommodate for its expanding user base.
“E-health is an innovative and fast-moving space that is constantly growing, with new players entering the market. As leaders in the e-health space in Australia, we are committed to staying in front to drive this growth and connect patients with their health care professionals,” said Dr Tan.
