Australian digital health company, 1ST Group (1ST) has launched a new COVID-19 directory service.
The new service makes it easier for patients to access healthcare services, specifically for the virus. These services include pop-up clinics, GP's, psychologists, telehealth providers and others.
These services will be found under its MyHealth1st platform, which already supports over 11,000 healthcare businesses across Australia.
On the platform, you will be able to find pharmacy chains like Priceline, TerryWhite Chemmart, Amcal, government agencies, mental health services, hospitals, dentists, specialists and more.
The practice will be alerted of potential virus carriers before patients come into the clinic.
Managing Director and Co-Founder Klaus Bartosch said the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging for all Australians and healthcare providers.
"By consolidating all services in one convenient website directory we are doing our bit to assist consumers who are otherwise scrambling to try and find services and information online," he said.
"Until now, to find these clinics and services you needed to visit multiple government and hospital websites, private practices and other websites. It is confusing, frustrating and almost completely impossible for Australians to find what they want easily, quickly and reliably at this very difficult time," he added.
1ST Group is expecting an increase in traffic to its platform and is prepared for the increased demand.
1ST is up a significant 42.9 per cent and is selling shares for 3¢ apiece at 12:26 pm AEDT.
