About Health IT

Operating since 1995, Peter Machell has established a reputation as a leading expert in Australian Primary Health IT, and has built an experienced team that now supports hundreds of private surgeries.

By working almost exclusively in Australian Healthcare, Health IT has developed expertise in all major clinical and front desk software packages, and the hardware and networking required to run them reliably and efficiently. We believe that by limiting our client base to the healthcare industry we can offer the very best service to that industry.

If you are happy with your IT service provider, please stay with and support them.

If things are not going so well we would invite you to  contact Health IT.

We are big enough to service you quickly, and small enough to service you very well.

Our Niche

Technology  to improve patient care.

A surgery that is looked after by Health IT has a distinct advantage; their technology maximises efficiency, growth and profitability, ultimately providing better patient outcomes.

Our Purpose

We take away the pain.

While other technology providers concentrate on customers with “20 to 100” seats and think of their smaller customers as somehow lesser, we concentrate on delivering the best, most affordable technology and support to you, the private doctor.

Our Customers

  • Engaged Private GPs and Specialists
  • Managed Group Practices
  • Other IT companies requiring Health specific expertise

Our focus is clear, however we also enjoy working for a small number of non-health businesses. We appreciate your faith in us and love the variety you bring.

Our Uniques - Why do customers choose Health IT?

Industry Expertise.  You know health, we know health technology. We understand the role and the value of technology in health provision, and how to deliver it affordably. We are driven by great patient care underpinned by the right solution.

Focused on Security.  We do everything we can to protect you, your reputation, your technology infrastructure, and your patient’s privacy from day one.

Speed Matters.  Responsiveness and agility are critical to how we support you. We are intolerant of downtime. We understand the urgency of issues that affect you – sometimes you need an ambulance and sometimes you need a care plan.
