Telstra Health has acquired the remaining 30 per cent of PowerHealth Solutions (PowerHealth), a global leader in healthcare and hospital costing and revenue software solutions, strengthening its offering of digital health solutions to hospital providers domestically in Australia and internationally.

Since November 2021, Telstra Health has had a majority stake in PowerHealth, a specialist provider in billing, costing and revenue solutions, budgeting, safety and quality, decision support and application integration solutions for hospitals and other healthcare enterprises. Combining Telstra Health and PowerHealth’s portfolio of solutions reflects Telstra Health’s commitment to investing in a sophisticated and comprehensive offering of digital health solutions to an international market.

Established in Adelaide in 1995, PowerHealth has grown to be a global healthcare business with a significant presence in Australia, Canada and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), and operations in Ireland.

Further investing in PowerHealth is consistent with our domestic and international growth strategy, and further strengthens our solution offerings in hospital care as we continue to focus on and invest in the core markets we support.”

PowerHealth offers six core digital health solutions including PowerPerformance Manager (PPM), a web-based system which calculates hospital delivery costs, integrating private and public funding revenue for providing accurate reports easily and regularly. In 2023 alone, PPM costed 75 per cent of all emergency department, inpatient admission and non-admitted Australian public episodes and AUD$40b of Australian hospital activity.
