Argus seamlessly integrates with existing clinical software and speeds up reporting processes, saving time and resources as well as encouraging co-operation between providers.
Our aim at Argus is to offer a common messaging option for all Australian healthcare providers which is equally available and affordable to anyone, whilst adhering to principles of open standards, transparency of technology, and interoperability.
