16 – Karen Finnin, Online Physio
Karen Finnin is a Physiotherapist, and the Director of Online Physio, who specialise in providing long distance Physiotherapy consultations to people who have trouble accessing traditional care.
She’s been a physio for 20 years, and worked in many rural and remote areas, here and abroad, and in that time identified the recurring need for patients in remote areas to have better access to quality care for injury management.
Due to the success of Online Physio, she has become one of Australia’s leading authorities when it comes to telehealth, and is passionate about opportunities that intersect between health, business and technology.
In this chat with Pete, Karen reflects on the rise of telehealth in allied health, the technology needed to be an effective Telehealth provider, the funding for Telehealth, and some hot tips for aspiring entrepreneurs about what makes a stand out Telehealth platform.
