Dear valued clients,

I would like to reference today’s article on the ABC website regarding Health Engine’s use of patient data and potential breach of patient privacy (for reference click here).

I want to take this opportunity to reassure you, our clients & partners that Healthsite DO NOT engage in any such activities. We do not engage with 3rd party advertisers, and we most importantly do not claim ownership of your patient data. Patient privacy and patient data protection is paramount to Healthsite.

This article, whilst deeply disturbing, has been a concern and talking point for us and many colleagues for quite some time and we are proud to not associate ourselves with these business practices.

Furthermore our business ethics and moral standpoint on collecting patient data for commercial use is strictly out of the question.

At its core, Healthsite is a clinics champion; helping drive efficiency, innovation, and meaningful data and ultimately allow clients to make better strategic decisions.

This has been, and will remain our single focus.

If you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact me personally on 0432 724 997.

Kind regards

Lachlan McPherson
Founder/Owner Healthsite

Make your site mobile optimised

At least 65% of all Australians own a smartphone, and 75% use their smartphone once a day to access the internet. Arguably, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the use and reliance on smartphones in day-to-day life of Australian’s will likely have increased beyond those figures – but the data is yet to be compiled. 

With easy access to information at our fingertips, the bottom line is that if your website is not optimised for a great user experienced on mobile, then people will navigate away and look for a website that does provide them with that great user experience. 

In fact, 61% of smartphone users are unlikely to return to a site that they had trouble accessing/viewing from their device. That’s a lot of traffic, leads and potential revenue being missed. 

A mobile optimised website must be a priority.
