Respiratory Health

Heart of Australia Corporate Health Initiative (HOACHI) provides respiratory health surveillance for current, retiring and former coal mine, mineral mine & quarry workers. We provide health monitoring programs for coal mine, mineral mine and quarry operators, as well as other industries working with hazardous dusts such as crystalline silica.

HOACHI can support full examinations or partner with other providers to support specific components such as radiology, lung function testing, examining physicians and supporting specialists. HOACHI is a specialist provider of high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT), laboratory lung function tests and respiratory specialist reviews for workers identified with suspected dust related lung diseases. We have expert physicians in radiology, occupational and respiratory medicine experienced in diagnosing occupational lung diseases to review and report on suspected cases.

Our service complements existing regional providers and works collaboratively with them to support the early detection and prevention of dust related lung diseases across regional, rural and remote Australia.

Our state-of-the-art mobile clinic (HEART5) has a broad geographical coverage helping offset travel expenditure and lost productivity costs for employers in regional, rural and remote Australia providing unprecedented onsite access to services such as:

Coal Mine Workers’ Health Scheme (CMWHS) Medicals

Mine Rescue Personnel Medicals
