About Snug

Over the course of a lifetime we visit countless different medical providers and specialists, but for nearly all of us our childhood GP is no longer the doctor we see. Traditionally these providers have also worked in clinical silos, where our medical notes are only shared with those linked with our immediate treatment.

As a patient, we are left with a fragmented health record across any number of GPs, hospitals and health providers; there is no single source record of the information about when we received our tetanus shot, had our last blood test done, or about the medications we are allergic to.

This leads to inefficiencies or complications in our overall health treatment.....until now.

Welcome to Snug, your personal electronic health record that will help you manage your health and enable you to share information with your health providers. All your health in one place.

Individuals can now collect and monitor their own data in order to make informed choices about their health and well-being.

Snug has three core functionalities that contribute to your personal health record;

  1. Integration of health devices. Data from your electronic devices including iPhones, fitness watches, scales, and blood glucose monitors can now be linked to one place and provide you with more insight to your health.
  2. Capacity to share your health information with others. As a parent you can manage your children's health or help an elderly parent or relative better manage their health.
  3. Sharing your information with health professionals. To assist your interactions with GPs, hospitals and others, Snug information can be shared with health providers to inform their decisions to better health outcomes.

Snug helps you track sleeping patterns, set goals around fitness, record your own health notes and be proactive in your health.

Your health is complex. The landscape of health care is changing. Are you ready to be part of this revolution?
