Telehealth platform developer establishes HQ in Melbourne

Telehealth firm XRHealth has announced that it will establish its Asia Pacific HQ and Fulfilment Centre in Melbourne.

The move is expected to create up to 90 new jobs, providing new or additional employment opportunities for clinicians and allied health professionals across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. The company will also employ workers through the Working for Victoria initiative.

XRHealth will initially partner with health insurer BUPA, following a successful trial earlier this year. The firm’s Telehealth and Remote Monitoring Service uses proprietary extended reality technology to help treat a range of health symptoms. The technology enables clinicians to design treatment plans for their clients using VR exercises and monitor progress through a real-time data-driven dashboard for the duration of their recovery.

“We trialled the XRHealth technology with selected customers earlier in the year and the results were overwhelmingly positive with customers reporting that they enjoyed the program and found it extremely convenient,” said Emily Amos, Managing Director of Health Insurance, BUPA.

Former Israeli Air Force pilots Eran Orr and Miki Levy founded XRHealth in 2016, following extensive combat simulation experience using virtual reality platforms.
