MediHealth Strategies is totally focused on helping your medical or allied health practice thrive. We’re a new division of eSense Web Design, a digital agency that was founded in 2009.
The internet and technology is a wonderful thing. It removes barriers to communication. It provides an unlimited market and ways for you to reach your patients and clients and build relationships with them. It provides ways to do things easier and faster and automate things you don’t enjoy or don’t need to be spending your time on.
But it can also take what should be simple and make it very, very confusing.
At MediHealth Strategies, we’re here to sort things out and give you the solutions to problems you never knew you had. We take care of the complexity, so you can focus on your patients.
Who you’re working with – My Story.
I’m Marama Carmichael, with over 20 years in business (about 10 of them running a multi modality allied therapies clinic) I know what works and what doesn’t work with running a practice.
In 2009 the house we were living in burned down and I really took a step back and thought about what I was doing with my life.
I remember standing in the rain watching all of our worldly possessions literally go up in smoke and deciding that I needed to make some changes. I’d become a slave to my practice, managing therapists and staff, marketing and sales, office management. The whole thing.
I’d made myself a job.
So I closed the centre and moved my private practice home for a little while to re-group.
Three months later I started eSense (though it was called something else then) . At first I worked helping the practitioners that used to work in the centre but over the years eSense has grown into a full fledged digital agency. We have always had an affinity for the well-being space and so medi health strategies is a natural extension.
Because of the fire, I have chosen to not have office space. We are a virtual agency which means I can work from my home office and while travelling. It also means our overheads are lower and as our clients you aren’t paying for expensive office space and a foosball table.
Other benefits of a virtual agency is we can source our team without geographic restraints.
Most of our team is in various parts of Australia, but our design and development team are in Europe and Canada. We love this – because they work while we sleep. It’s almost like having magical elves like the cobblers shoes fairy-tale.
Helping businesses grow is in my DNA so apart from eSense and Medi Health, I’m also a professional mentor for other Digital Agency owners with uGurus. This is my effort to change the industry for the better. It’s also a great way to stay up to date with the latest and greatest at a worldwide level (which helps my clients) and an excuse to visit the states at least once a year for the annual live event (uGurus is based in Denver, Colorado)
I’m a mentor too, for She Business – a women’s business development group. Our goal in She Business is for every Australian woman running their own business to be financially secure.
