About South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN)
South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) works primarily on behalf of the Australian Government to improve local health care.
We want everyone in our community to be able to access the right care, in the right place, at the right time.
We are working to achieve this goal by improving access to existing services, commissioning new services to improve health outcomes, and encouraging GPs and others to innovate and further improve local health care.
Our six key priorities are mental health, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, population health, health workforce, eHealth and aged care. We partner with general practitioners, other primary health care providers, hospitals and communities to ensure improved outcomes for patients.
Our catchment stretches from St Kilda to Sorrento to Bunyip, including the major population hubs of Clayton, Dandenong, Moorabbin, Caulfield, Cranbourne, Frankston and Pakenham.
Infoxchange is a not-for-profit social enterprise that has delivered technology for social justice for over 25 years.
With over 100 staff across Australia and New Zealand we tackle the biggest social challenges through the smart and creative use of technology.
We work with community, government and corporate partners to solve family violence, homelessness, mental health and issues facing people with disabilities, the elderly, Aboriginal, Maori and Pasifika communities.
Our products and services are used by over 6500 organisations across the community sector. We provide the right tools to improve efficiency and deliver greater impact – from nation-wide service coordination systems to IT advice for individual organisations.
Our community programs focus on digital inclusion. We use technology to improve the lives of vulnerable people, driving social inclusion and creating stronger communities. We believe no-one should be left behind in today’s digital world.
