Coviu, an Australian telehealth startup, is launching its platform in the jammed US market. It’s marketing as an ‘all-in-one virtual engagement platform’ and is clearly appealing to primary care practices that need a less expensive solution. Its difference is apparently with modular apps that can extend a provider’s clinical work: behavioral health, speech pathology, and audiology. Base pricing starts at $25 monthly with the highest level package $65/month. Integrated apps are the Wechsler Individual Achievement Test, pulse oximeter remote monitoring, and a checklist for PTSD. They are also developing a new digital wound care toolkit in collaboration with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation and the Western NSW Primary Health Network, for release in 2026 (!!). Coviu claims use by 90,000 clinicians worldwide who deliver a daily average of over 14,000 telehealth consultations. Their US base is in Dover, Delaware and is HQd in Brisbane and Sydney.
