Our Mission and Vision

To connect every Australian with important health information earlier and to access health professionals sooner, so that you can live a longer, healthier life.

To see a world where prevention is the norm and suffering avoidable disease isn’t.

Why CHECKiT HEALTH

It’s the unexpected heart attack, the stroke leaving us paralysed or the bowel cancer caught too late. The untreated sexually transmitted infection, the high blood pressure or cholesterol you didn’t know you had.

Common medical events that with the right information, early identification of risk factors, screening tests or disease intervention could have been avoided.

We know that health checks don’t just prevent disease but can treat it successfully if caught early.

At CHECKiT HEALTH, we believe the biggest problem facing Australians and their health is a lack of access to the best information to make health decisions and time available to tend to keep our health up to date.

We bring your needs into a simple solution, harnessing technology to keep the business of managing your health easy.

CHECKiT HEALTH includes recommended health checks based on Australian Guidelines.

Prevention today is largely opportunistic.

We rely heavily on GPs we see on average just 10 minutes per year, while only 7 out of every 100 consults are for preventative health checks such as blood pressure, cholesterol tests or cancer screening.

It’s almost impossible to keep up.

We don’t know what we don’t know.

A recent survey of 200+ Australians found:

80% did not know the risk factors for leading diseases.

Almost 90% were not aware of the checks due for their age.

Over 50% had not had the recommended checks.

We are busier than ever.

Keeping up with family, work, social and professional commitments leaves little space to find out what to do and keep up with checks when they’re due.

The older we get the more checks we need and the busier we are, the less time we have to organise them.

We are more connected than ever.

We already have smart phones using countless apps to keep us healthy and to organise our lives.

Checkit health does it all – a schedule of tailored health checks, accessible anywhere with access to bookings and important health tips, keeping you on top of it all.
