Following the acquisition of Dr Foster by Telstra Health in 2015, we are excited to announce that we have decided that it is the right time to now adopt the same corporate branding as our parent company, and rename Dr Foster to Telstra Health UK.
Our decision to rebrand reflects Telstra Health’s long-term growth commitment to the UK, and its substantial and ongoing investment in developing and delivering population health data and analytics services to our customers.
This Q&A explains how Dr Foster is being more closely integrated into the Telstra family.
Who is Telstra Health?
Telstra Health is the specialist digital health arm of Telstra. With deep experience and a unique footprint across the spectrum of health and aged care, it has a demonstrable track record in providing digitally enabled integrated care and successful population health management initiatives to tackle health inequalities.
What is happening to Dr Foster?
Providing high quality, data-led population health management in the UK is the main priority for Telstra Health. That is why Dr Foster is being rebranded to Telstra Health UK. The commitment to continuing investment in the UK health sector offers the perfect opportunity for Telstra Health UK to keep improving the health data and analytics services we deliver. Dr Foster has a long and proven-track record of analytics-led benchmarking and performance improvement for healthcare providers in the UK, which we remain committed to and will continue to deliver and innovate on.
What will the Telstra Health UK offer look like?
Our aim is to be the agent of change in the NHS, leveraging Telstra Health’s practical, real-world experience of running and supporting integrated health and care systems in Australia.
Dr Foster’s well established NHS benchmarking tools will be central to Telstra Health UK objectives by helping to provide a greater understanding of the patient characteristics that drive demands on care services and helping to inform decisions for implementing suitable services to support the needs of the population.
We look forward to continuing the exciting Dr Foster journey, and are delighted that you will be joining us in our next chapter as Telstra Health UK.
