Queensland Health, which manages public hospitals across the entire state, is looking for interested startups to participate in its Expo in October. With a population of 4.85 million across a state area equalling several European countries, it’s an exciting opportunity for startups looking to improve communications, telehealth services, rural and remote access, Indigenous healthcare, and remote monitoring of patients.
