Coviu targeting private practice with WebRTC platform for online consults
Start-up firm Coviu is planning to work with general and medical specialist software vendors to integrate its browser-based telehealth platform into practice management systems, and also plans to develop a payment gateway so doctors can charge for consults from within the Coviu system.
Coviu is a spin-out from Data61, formerly known as NICTA and now part of the CSIRO, and has been working on its WebRTC-based platform for a number of years. WebRTC allows for browser-to-browser video conferencing and exchange of documents and images such as clinical photos without the need to use an extension or download an app like Skype.
