Feds funding healthdirect Video Call for all GPs for free

The Australian Department of Health is funding free use of the healthdirect Video Call video consultation service for all GPs until September 30 to help them transition to a new business model during and after the pandemic.

Healthdirect uses the secure Coviu platform that has been purpose-built for the healthcare sector and is already used by a quarter of general practices in the country, supported by primary health networks, as well as for hospital outpatients services in Western Australia, the ACT, South Australia and Victoria.

There are many video conferencing solutions available, is the DoH involved in market manipulation to support one of its funded agencies? Eventually HealthDirect's Video Call will be obsolete as each clinical software vendor adds this feature to their own product. HealthDirect's workflow does not support General Practice which require a video link attached to their appointment booking system and email reminders.
