AN INTERVIEW WITH MAREE BEARE FROM WANNGI

Why did you start your business or take the role that you're in now? 

Imagine a future where no matter where in the world you see a health professional, you will have access to your health data. Wanngi’s vision is for consumers to be more included in their health journey by empowering them with access to their health data. We know that this change will greatly impact the health industry and people's lives in a positive way. We want people to have control, to get better diagnosed, to save money and overall just live a better, simpler and healthier life. In early 2017 I realised that one major thing was missing from the health care system.
“I tried to access my health record and the only option I could find was the government consumer portal. At that time, I realised that the eHealth record was only really accessible for clinicians, bureaucrats, and insurance companies, so I set about making it accessible to people, giving them more control over their health information.”

What inspires you and gets you out of bed in the mornings? 

That for some people what I'm doing with Wanngi could really empower them and change their lives.

What's been the best lesson you've learned in business or your career and why? 

Continue to learn and grow in every role so you stay relevant.

What does the future look like for you? 

2020 will be a time for global expansion of Wanngi. Wanngi involves a social change. We believe that consumers will move from passive to more engaged in their health. Priorities will change as people see the impacts of recent disasters such as the Bushfires in Australia where there may be long term impacts on their health from the resulting poor air quality and lost physical documents highlight the need to move to digital records.

What is your boldest move to date? 

Creating this startup Wanngi.

What's one piece of advice you'd give other women in business or in their careers? 

To go for it. Take precautions and be prepared as much as possible but at the end of the day you need to go for it and take a risk. No successful business was built without some level of risk.
