Testimonials
Digital health companies require specialist support to commercialise. The type of support ANDHealth provides is vital to the early stages of digital health companies to allow them to accelerate their growth. Personify Care is growing rapidly, headquartered in SA, exporting internationally, currently hiring 3 new full-time roles and will expand our team further this financial year; we need to support emerging digital health companies to expand this sector and create digital health jobs from companies headquartered in SA.
Ken Saman
CEO Personify Care
Digital health is an emerging and exponentially growing sector of the health ecosystem. As such, clinicians and entrepreneurs require specialised support to navigate uncharted waters of regulation and evidence-based medicine. It is essential to the growth of the digital health sector in South Australia that we provide this specific support to digital health companies here. I have observed ANDHealth's operations in other states over the last few years and applaud their commitment and the quality of the expertise that they put around the digital health companies that they support. This is resulting in not only health innovation but strong commercial outcomes from the companies they have supported.
Peter Bradley
VP Global Business Development, LBT Innovations
I am very supportive of the work ANDHealth is doing which is unique in the health sector in Australia. Their programs provide invaluable support and advice to people looking to develop, invest and grow in the healthcare IT industry through offering access to business and commercialisation support, deep knowledge of the sector and much needed support to new entrants. I would have welcomed access to these skills as we developed from early stage to full commercialisation.

From my perspective as an Advisor to numerous Digital Health organizations, ANDHealth really stands out as a visionary organization with unique leadership that understands the need to target real problems in healthcare and address them with innovation and transformation that are grounded in economic sustainability and successful long-term outcomes.

Australia’s digital health sector will experience significant growth over the coming decades. ANDHealth has played and will continue to play a vital role in the development and growth of this sector in Australia, which will be a significant opportunity for STEM job creation and economic growth in the country. I would love to continue supporting ANDHealth in anyway that I can to promote the sector in Australia.

We acknowledge the positive impact that ANDHealth has had on the sector and look favourably on their pursuit of public and private funding to support future operations. I believe ANDHealth has delivered great value to the sector and we believe the dedication solely to digital health and informed by industry leaders with proven backgrounds and the national and international networking opportunities in digital health commercialisation through members, partners and networks are of particularly great value.
