AttendAnywhere_Logo_300 trans copy

Attend Anywhere was founded in Melbourne in 1998 and has been changing the way healthcare is delivered ever since.

The company has been at the leading edge of using video technology in the health sector for many years, collaborating with governments, hospitals and health systems in helping to offer patients the option of attending appointments online, via a high-quality video call.

More than technology, Attend Anywhere offers an enablement model and framework that has evolved over years of collaboration with clinicians, health services, medical colleges, governments and universities. It addresses barriers to scale and sustainability, which are primarily operational, people and process integration related, as opposed to technical.

Our video consulting programmes encompass all aspects of service development and delivery, from clinical and operational design including accessibility, functionality, quality, and scalability, through to technical design and development.


Induction provides healthcare systems with a technology toolkit that enables flexible care – giving providers and patients the freedom to deliver, receive and manage care digitally as well as in-person, and helping healthcare administrators to provide their communities with a standard of service that meets 21st century expectations by integrating with pre-existing IT investments and workflows.   

Our systems are used at a national scale across England, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland – relied upon by hundreds of thousands of clinicians and millions of patients across almost every hospital in these regions.
