Australians will be shocked to realise that many organisations have easy access to their health information, but they don’t get that same access, nor can they check if it is always correct. Are we okay with not knowing our data?

Wanngi is the first app to provide a secure and comprehensive way to store, view and check all your health information in one place. Most people have shared their information with  health care providers. But not all of this is in a place for Australians to securely view it in a convenient way.

Founder of the app Wanngi, Maree Beare believes that consumers deserve a way to view their own health data.“Two years ago my vision was to create an app which gave consumers control over their health information, and where possible to give them the same access that clinicians and bureaucrats have,” Ms Beare said. “When you use an app like Wanngi to create and contribute to a personal health record, you’re giving yourself priority access to your health information inside a secure app.”

The app provides users confidence in being able to check that their health information is correct and up to date. Not only that, it is all in the one convenient place.

Beare believes there is a social movement happening across the health industry, as Australians are looking to be in complete control of their own health information with apps such as Wanngi. Research into health information provided by consumers shows that it increases reassurance, confidence and satisfaction in health providers, as well as promotes greater personal responsibility and strengthens communication. Wanngi’s focus on security – including high-level encryption and HIPAA compliant health information storage, means health information is as safe as possible.
