About HealthIT

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 over 500 surgeries.

There is no compulsory accreditation or licensing in the IT industry. Unfortunately many IT service providers are either incompetent or unscrupulous. Information Technology is more than an industry – it is now a major part of every industry. We believe that no single technician or company can be an expert in every area of IT.

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 Mission

By combining excellent technology with excellent service, we enable our customers to improve patient care.

In other words, 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 Vision

We believe that private providers deliver the best healthcare, and that they deserve the best in IT support. We know “what good looks like” for technology in healthcare.

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 available technology and support to you, the private doctor.

Our Values

We strive to do the right thing, even when nobody is watching.
Security isn’t a thing we do. It’s a part of every thing we do, from start to finish.
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” – Calvin Coolidge
Every process and procedure is built with transparency. Every interaction, be it with a customer, supplier or peer is done with clarity. Whenever possible, we lean towards “open source” not to “proprietary”.
