What they achieved

Phenix Health now has clients around the world.

How they did it

Phenix saw a need for primary health care in India, which tends to focus more on tertiary care.

TIQ helped them develop business connections with relevant Indian organisations.

Phenix then joined a trip to India with Austrade and spoke with local doctors, which helped them build relationships in market.

After experiencing communication blackspots in slum areas outside of Delhi, they developed an app that can store medical records on a smartphone or tablet in the field and then sync that information to a secure cloud-based server when staff return to Delhi.

This information helps Indian health authorities support patients with acute conditions such as diabetes, malaria and drug dependence throughout the country.
