Doctors Australia's mission is to deliver the best possible healthcare experience for patients
The idea for Doctors Australia began decades ago with the vision to take a better approach to healthcare, one that focussed on the patient. A vision where people could lead fuller, healthier lives through prevention and where patients could fully trust, understand, and effortlessly interact with the healthcare system. Today, Doctors Australia continues on this mission through our innovative, online health platform, providing our members with the health services and resources needed to easily understand and manage their healthcare, helping them to live happier and healthier lives.
The Doctors Australia online platform allows patients to manage their family's health records, research their health conditions, conveniently access a variety of healthcare services, and much more. By facilitating a seamless interaction between patients and the healthcare system, we are able to ensure better health outcomes with greater convenience and lower cost.
How We Are Different
A Focus On Prevention - With an aging population and 68% of Australia having a preventable chronic disease, prevention has never been more important. We have built a suite of preventative healthcare services to help our members stay on top of their health, including medically-verified risk factor assessments and early detection reminders.
You Own Your Data - We believe that everyone should have complete control over their healthcare data, including their ability to access it anywhere, at anytime.
All Your Needs in One Place - The healthcare system is complex and we want to provide our members with a seamless, effortless experience. By continuing to bring on board leading industry partners we are able to provide patients with a single platform for an increasing number of their healthcare needs.
