Why can’t Australians upload their own health documents to My Health Record?

My Health Record is being used by thousands of healthcare providers around the country but innovative Australian startup Wanngi is the first to give individuals a way to contribute to their own personal health record.

In Australian first, health app Wanngi allows individuals to upload their own health documents – including doctor appointments, referrals, scripts and discharge summaries – to a personal health record.

For example, Physios and Doctors may want to understand your symptoms and treatment history, including test results so they can provide a relevant treatment plan. Wanngi helps with your communication to these health professionals.

Wanni’s sorely-needed feature gives people a way to digitally store critical health information from Australian and overseas health providers.

By giving consumers control of their own health information, Wanngi is ahead of the curve, providing features never seen before in Australia – including CDA capability and the ability to personally upload any information you can’t store in My Health Record.

Wanngi provides a much-needed supplement to My Health Record, and includes immunisation reminders, symptom tracking, and integration to fitness wearables like Fitbit, Garmin and Strava.

What’s more, Wanngi provides those who opted of My Health Record a fully-fledged private personal health record, with world-class security infrastructure.

Wanngi will soon allow Australians access to view their My Health Record from any device.

Look forward to discussing any questions you may have. In the meantime, here is a link to our press kit. I also look forward to your feedback on the app. You can download and trial Wanngi here.
