Jyotveer Singh, Chief Executive Officer of AnonCare said: “We’re really looking forward to pitching against the best and brightest entrepreneurs. Being a technology that is focused on enhancing compassion across the world, it is a huge honour to speak about our values-led technology on a stage, once shared by Nelson Mandela.”

Doctors to provide clinical assurance through smartphones

This August AnonCare launched ‘Health Notes’, a powerful feature that enables healthcare professionals to provide clinical assurance to patients through their smartphones. The development comes at a time when a national panel of tech experts claim that the “digital revolution has largely bypassed the NHS”, a statement AnonCare is determined to prove wrong.

Since its launch in 2013, AnonCare has become a popular global peer support network, reducing pressures on the health industry by connecting users to take care of each other. Available on desktop and smartphone devices, the technology leverages the collective wisdom of its global membership to respond to individual challenges. The network’s single anonymous feed is testimony to its mission to create a shared responsibility for the wellbeing of others.

Driven by government strategy to help support the aging population and growing level of long term conditions, the UK based tech start-up has integrated a health journal, which helps its users record their health information in a single, organised location. In addition to this users can:

  • Grant access to their carers to access and review their Health Notes
  • Securely receive document, image and audio files from their healthcare providers
  • Automatically alert those with access, if user has a continuation of ill health

Jyotveer Singh, Chief Executive Officer at AnonCare said: “Patient generated data probably plays the biggest role in making them well again, as it gives medical teams the essential insights and knowledge on which to base their care.

“By giving their carers remote access to Health Notes, patients can gain clinical assurance at home, whilst accessing 24/7 peer support from the AnonCare family. To my knowledge, this has never been done before.”

The BETA version of Health Notes which was tested in several countries has proved successful, highlighting it as an international care model that connects the dots for health organisations across the globe.

Sandra Neves Magazoni from Brazil said: “The possibility of having a place where we can immediately record, how we are, how we feel about our physical and emotional health is so great! Health Notes is valuable for me and for my treatments as it allows me to share my information with the people I trust. The fact that I can log my health information instantly through my smartphone makes it more convenient and accurate.

“Having the support from the AnonCare network is also great. Many times when we are sick, we feel alone and hopeless, and to know that somewhere someone cares and is willing to help us, regardless of whether we know each other or not, is very comforting.”

Announcing new capabilities for AnonCare

At a time when national technology experts claim that the digital revolution has largely bypassed the NHS, AnonCare prepares to introduce a major development in digital healthcare.

Launching in August 2017, AnonCare ‘Health Notes’ is a powerful tool accessible from within our network that helps users to store personal health information and share it with the people they trust.

The ‘patient owned, patient shared’ approach has been a long standing ambition of the NHS, disadvantaged by the fragmented, localised health records. Health Notes has been specifically designed to connect the dots by letting users generate data to inform multiple healthcare providers and enable them to provide clinical assurance through patient smartphones.

Using Health Notes, users will be able to:

  • Grant access to multiple carers to access and review their Health Notes
  • Securely receive document, image and audio files from their healthcare providers
  • Automatically alert those with access, if user has a continuation of ill health

Our product development team has been working hard to integrate Health Notes into our global peer support system that connects people from across the world to take care of each other. We are confident that this is the first time such a unique model of care will be provided, a model which integrates the 24/7 support of the AnonCare network with the remote intervention capabilities provided by Health Notes.

We are preparing to embark on a major development that will put AnonCare at the forefront of integrated healthcare. Over the years our network has grown into a rich tapestry of interdependent people and will soon empower clinicians with the insight to support them from the comfort of their own homes.

We are incredibly energised about the opportunities to make a difference. It’s a big challenge, but we believe AnonCare Health Notes will be central transforming lives and the world around us.

This August, we look forward to introducing the world to AnonCare Health Notes.

AnonCare poised to succeed Yik Yak

The tech industry is still recovering from the news of the anonymous messaging app Yik Yak shutting down. However, hope is on the horizon for its dismayed users with AnonCare, a values led UK tech start-up which hopes will fill the void left by the collapse of Yik Yak, whilst appealing to an audience beyond college students.

Popularised by Yik Yak, AnonCare offers its users a single feed for the sharing of content, however the app focuses its efforts on connecting people to create a shared responsibility for the wellbeing of others. People from across the world use AnonCare to share issues or concerns whilst tapping into the world’s collective wisdom for advice and support.

As an App based on enhancing compassion across the world, AnonCare remains largely free of the bullies and trolls that caused much disruption to anonymous apps like Yik Yak.

A recent user analysis highlighted that over 80% of AnonCare members experience an improvement in their mood and wellbeing, and 94% would recommend the App to a friend or family member.

Jyotveer Singh, AnonCare founder and CEO said: “Rather than a force for unity, social networks often breed social divisions. If we don’t address this head-on, inequality will develop deeper roots that will further cement divisions in our lives.

“The AnonCare App is really a rich tapestry of interdependent people, who go beyond caste and creed to take care of each other as one large family. Selective anonymity works in our favour so people can share real life issues and authentic content that Identity-based platforms like Facebook often inhibit users from posting. Yik Yak showed that there is a market for an anonymous feed, we are going a step further by demonstrating the desire for a more compassionate one.”

AnonCare is available for download in the Apple App Store and on Google Play (Android).
