For over 6 years, Healthshare's digital solutions have been improving connectivity between patients and health practitioners.

To assist patients in making better-informed decisions about specialists and practitioners, Healthshare has recently partnered with two of the biggest private health funds that together insure over 5 million Australians.

We're confident that these partnerships will empower patients by providing them with credible and accurate details related to their doctors' clinical expertise, locations, as well as the status of their gap participation.

Digital infrastructure has become essential to health and medical services, ranging from the practitioner through to the patient. Strategic collaborations like ours have become essential to increasing efficiencies, improving patient health outcomes and decreasing consultation and treatment wait times right across the sector.

Healthshare has also partnered with a number of primary care stakeholders, giving GPs access to the Healthshare referral directory through both their clinical software and Healthshare’s purpose-built doctor portal.

Healthshare CEO Rami Weiss commented; “We're very excited to work with the private health insurance sector, to help them provide more value to their members”

“We enable a practitioner self-serve platform that allows specialists, GPs and allied health providers to create profiles where they are able to add their clinical details, such as practice locations and sub specialities, as well as provide answers to our growing patient Q&A community - a platform which reaches millions of Australians each year.” Mr Weiss added.

Healthshare's Medical Director, Dr Charlotte Middleton added that; “as a practising GP, I need to rely on accurate and reliable data about the specialists I refer my patients to. Healthshare's referral directory has become an essential tool for my practice, by providing me with confidence and features which benefit my patients."

“The additional health fund search function also allows me to have honest and upfront discussions with my patients about the specialists I have chosen to refer them to. I'm glad that my patients are also able to empower themselves by conducting their own research through Healthshare.com.au.” Dr Middleton added.
