Practice Management for Podiatrists

Healthia Limited is a publicly listed business aiming to grow to be one of Australia’s major allied health firms that offers podiatry, physiotherapy and related services. The company is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange with the opening of a $26.8 million Initial Public Offer (IPO). Healthia is the holding corporation which is the owner of and manages over 70 MyFootDr podiatry clinics all around Australia. Additionally they own the foot orthotics laboratory, iOrthotics and have a 50 per cent stake of DBS Medical which supplies healthcare products. The Initial public offering proceeds were used to finance buying of more podiatry practices and some physiotherapy and hand therapy clinics. They feel that Australia’s highly fragmented allied health market provides a business opportunity for them to provide integrated solutions in order to meet the need for physiotherapy and podiatry services because the population will become more aged. Healthia expect to achieve this by helping clinicians decrease administrative worries of their practices. The vertically bundled firms including iOrthotics and DBS Medical is going to be useful to drive purchasing synergies, and also to enhance the procedures of current practices, generating cost savings through the increased size and enhance practice operations.
