Brisbane health start-up ‘Cubiko’ set to revolutionise General Practice
After a 12 month trial with leading general practices across Australia, Cubiko will officially launch today at the AAPM Conference in Brisbane.
Cubiko is set to enhance the performance of the healthcare sector and is partnering with Australia’s largest practice management software provider, “Best Practice” to support the needs of the majority of Australia’s general practices.
Best Practice CEO Dr Frank Pyefinch said, “We congratulate Cubiko on this excellent initiative that will be such a benefit to Practices using Bp Premier” said Dr Pyefinch. “This tool will bring together and analyse data from different sources and present it in a way that is easily understood and interpreted to make good business decisions”.
Cubiko, a joint venture between data analytics specialist, ‘Aginic’, and award-winning general practice, ‘Inala Primary Care’, will stimulate vast improvements to productivity, profitability and reduce day-to-day operational challenges facing the general practice community.
In a tight budget environment due to the Medicare freeze and with rising patient complexity, general practice needs a system to support teamwork, the organisation of care before patients present to a practice, tracing of accounts receivable and better management of patient communications.
Despite the emergence of data management platforms, few account for the complex needs of general practices and the extensive data flows resulting from patient care, accounting, bookings, rostering, social media and reception workflows.
Cubiko is a first-of-a-kind product which gives general practices access to insights about their business and its operations, with a focus on driving sustainable outcomes and improved consistency of care.
Cubiko Founder & CEO, Chris Smeed, said that the solution comes at a critical time for General Practices looking to leverage data to improve business performance and team satisfaction.
“More and more, we’re seeing General Practices looking to harness the power of their own practice data to provide operations and cost savings efficiencies across their business,” said Smeed.
“At Cubiko, we want to empower practices to find those efficiencies in their day to day workflows, ultimately allowing them to focus on delivering better care for every patient, every day,” Chris said.
Partner investors and co-creators of Cubiko, Inala Primary Care, were one of the practices to participate in the pilot. Inala Primary Care have been using a data-driven approach to manage their practice for over five years and leveraged this experience into designing the Cubiko platform.
Inala Primary Care, CEO, Tracey Johnson admitted the ever-tightening Medicare environment means data dashboards have become even more critical to the efficiency of day-to-day practice operations.
“They help save costs from overstaffing, generate revenue and better manage diaries to boost utilisation of the team.
“Without the data from the dashboards, the leadership team of the practice would never have been able to evolve fast enough to have achieved AGPAL Australian Practice of the Year in May 2016,” Johnson says.
Cubiko is currently offering complimentary product demonstrations, available to all general practices across Australia.
