About Precedence Health Care

Precedence Health Care provides the digital health technologies and services crucial to health care reform. Over the past decade, we have led the development of care planning and coordination technologies for tackling the growing challenge of chronic illness and other complex conditions.

We believe that improvements in health care are best achieved when healthcare providers are aided by digital technologies, not overwhelmed by them. To this end, we aim to build on the traditions of good medicine while providing a pathway to future models of health care.

We work closely with leading research and education institutes to address some of the most difficult problems in healthcare. From the management of chronic illness to the coordination of providers and their patients across the continuum of care, our solutions are founded upon clinical evidence and best practice care.

Our products and solutions are used by leading healthcare providers, businesses and governments across Australia. We provide the core technology for major health reform initiatives nationally and over 150,000 patients use our cloud and mobile technologies to better manage their health and wellbeing.

Our coordinated care platform, cdmNet, is the only care management product endorsed by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners for supporting quality improvement in general practice.

Our development team includes some of the most experienced technologists and clinical experts in Australia. They are led by an outstanding executive team with broad international experience in business, advanced digital technologies and health care.

Precedence Health Care was established in Australia in 2007 and was acquired by Sonic Healthcare Limited, one of Australia’s largest healthcare companies, in 2015. It operates as an independent business within Sonic Clinical Services.
