Karen Finnin is a self-proclaimed accidental entrepreneur, but also a pioneer of the online healthcare movement. We talked to Karen to find out how she went from rural physiotherapist to telehealth pioneer.
If you weren’t able to be in Melbourne (AU) last night for our second ever Cliniko community meetup, you missed out on a friendly get-together, chats with others that work in the healthcare space, great food (the chicken burgers were voted MVP by Cliniko’s own Matt, and Martina) and some of the Cliniko team too!
If you couldn’t be there, here’s the next best thing—video recordings of our wonderful guest speakers!
Karen Finn—Third World to Online World
First up was telehealth pioneer Karen Finnin (Director, Online Physio), inspired the meetup group with the story of her career—“Third World to Online World: A crazy journey from East Timor’s first ever physio practice, to Australia’s first entirely online physio clinic”—and shared her lessons on working with technology as an allied health provider.

In particular, for our Australian customers, Pete Williams (Co-founder & Co-CEO of Medipass) presented our second talk of the night - “Show me the money: claiming from Medicare as an allied health provider” in which he shared stats on the patient claiming options in Australia (and how you, as an allied health provider, can get paid using these options). And yes, for Cliniko Australian customers—Medicare claiming through Cliniko (including claiming features you can’t get anywhere else) is almost here!
