Promoting health technology since 2012
Wikihospitals is run by two health professionals with a deep interest in technology and innovation.
We understand the needs of those working in the industry, the problems patients often encounter, and struggle that Health Startups face gaining acceptance by Governments and Health Insurers.
A joint project is underway, involving health professionals, Swinburne University, Australian entrepreneurs and technology experts. An example of Aged Care services are displayed below.

Health Technology Made Relevant
Forget having thousands of new tech services (the majority of them irrelevant to your needs), dumped on you, then put up with being told it’s your fault, that you don’t understand their relevance.
Knowledge about health technology is essential. But in a way that is understandable.
