Australian start-ups GPNow and Wanngi have joined forces to offer a private telehealth solution

The private telehealth service is intended to help communities make better lifestyle choices and improve their quality of life. GPNow will provide telehealth services with medical professionals and the Wanngi Health Management Platform will be used to build personal health accounts that will have symptoms, chronic health conditions, medications, immunisations (including Covid-19) uploaded to one secure place. 

Australian start-up Practice Innovators Pty Ltd (PII Australia) under its brand GPNow www.gpnow.net established a similar private telehealth service for Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) connecting 2000+ SCIA clients to their Neuromoves therapist last year – the service exploded into action during the pandemic in March last year with over 6000 sessions keeping SCIA clients connected to their therapists during the nationwide lockdown.

Robert Hicken – Founder & CEO of PII Australia said, “Nothing will ever replace face to face consultations with our medical professionals however the Program based telehealth services such as SCIA and now Aboriginal services provides a new way to reach out and improve service for community members. One of the benefits of working with a locally based partner such as Wanngi is the ability to quickly tailor the platform to meet our client’s specific needs”

Australian Start-up Wanngi was established in 2017 – Wanngi is a health management app that creates a personal medical library for its users making it the only health management app they will need. Users can store all their details in one secure HIPAA Compliant online location, and export their history to enhance telehealth sessions. Wanngi is for people who live with chronic health conditions and see multiple doctors. Wanngi can be used to record all Covid-19 test results, immunisations and vaccine reminders.
