RealTime Health is a Melbourne-based, online health content producer, specialising in the niche area of 'patient and carer narrative'.

The company produces the ‘Speaking From Experience' series, which comprises a database of over 400 video clips for online delivery and a library of 50 DVDs.

The series presents the patient and carer experience of a range of illnesses. Topics include depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, OCD, schizophrenia, heart disease, asthma, diabetes, arthritis, epilepsy, cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

The resource is continually growing with the addition of 4-6 new titles (50-60 video clips) per annum.

RealTime Health takes an evidence-based approach to content production, by collaborating closely with peak health support groups and associations, reviewing current literature relating to each topic and conducting focus groups with participants. This methodology is a significant contributor to market acceptance of the company's core product; it is authoritative and trustworthy.

RealTime Health was founded by Tina Campbell with the objective to make the ‘Speaking From Experience' content more accessible to the general community via online delivery. Tina's aim is to enable broad access to patient experiential knowledge.
