Stat and Charm named as digital champions

Brisbane-based medical software vendors Stat Health Systems and Charmhealth have been named as “digital champions” for Brisbane in a recent survey.

The survey, carried out by Ernst & Young and the University of Queensland on behalf of Brisbane’s economic development agency Brisbane Marketing, audited over 500 small to medium enterprises and chose 25 of those who have helped to create a digital capability analysis for all Brisbane businesses as digital champions.

Stat Health Systems (SHS), Charmhealth and podiatry centre MyFootDr were among those 25. The companies will now act as advocates for the adoption of digital processes to their customers.

SHS CEO Carla Doolan said her company's role as a digital champion was a huge honour.

“We have embraced a digital approach to business – from recording and tracking support calls from our clients to identifying and developing new features for Stat,” Ms Doolan said.

She said that in its role as digital champion, SHS will be advocating digital methods of customer communication and marketing, and using the latest technology for software design, development and release.

Brisbane Marketing CEO John Aitken said the Brisbane digital audit ranged across 19 industries from single operators to companies of more than 5000 employees.

“The digital audit will provide valuable insights for the development of Brisbane’s digital strategy and in highlighting areas in which we can help Brisbane businesses to grow,” Mr Aitken said.

“The digital strategy will encourage local businesses to harness digital technology to improve efficiencies, grow their businesses, encourage export and global reach and ultimately increase profitability.”
