On any given day as many as 1 in 20 employees are absent from work. Around a third of Australian employees between 25 and 64 have a chronic illness. And over three-quarters of absenteeism is attributable to 3 illnesses that can be routinely managed online:
The evidence is clear. Australian employers take absenteeism less seriously than they should. Estimates vary, but it’s thought to cost Australian businesses over $30 billion a year. Add to that the cost of employees coming to work while ill (also estimated to cost in excess of $30 billion a year), and it’s a problem that has to be addressed.

Our 4 flagship services:
- Online medical certificates for minor illnesses
- It’s well-evidenced that time-poor staff are the most likely to obtain a medical certificate for illness. With qoctor they stay in bed recovering rather than losing recovery time making a trip to the doctor’s surgery (where they are exposed to other illnesses).
- Online prescriptions
- For example the contraceptive pill. Every day, perfectly healthy employees all over Australia have to take time out of their schedule to access their regular medications. In the next few weeks, qoctor will launch an online prescription service (with delivery or pick-up options) for a variety of medications, including the contraceptive pill
