About Us

Our mission is to break down the barriers to healthcare  

Founded in 2015 by a partnership between a former-restaurateur and a doctor, Hyphen Health is innovating new Australian healthcare solutions. James Sneddon (the entrepreneur) and Dr Mitchell Tanner (the GP) share an interest in breaking down the barriers that stop people from accessing medical care.  

Here’s more about our Clinics 

Our ground-breaking sexual health testing platform, Stigma Health, has proven Hyphen Health’s reputation as a leading the way in online healthcare. We’re not shy about sexual wellness and our trailblazing online service has received widespread media attention 

Roidsafe is the newest platform launched by Hyphen Health and is a game-changing world first, a harm minimisation service for the steroid, sport & hormone community.  

Roidsafe and Stigma join Hyphen Health’s other telehealth clinics – PrEP Health, Bloke Health and Quit Health. Wherever there’s a barrier to healthcare – you’ll find Hyphen Health.  

The proof is in the patients
Our secure, reliable platforms have helped over 17,000 people and counting… 

Together with our team of experienced Australian doctors, we are revolutionising the healthcare industry. We believe strongly in the power of new technology for better health outcomes. There are many reasons why people don’t seek out the medical tests they should – these range from financial, limited medical resources in a region to the stigma attached with some presenting issues. Over the next few years, we’ll tackle even more of these barriers to healthcare so that every Australian feels comfortable to get the tests they need, when they need them.  

Dr. Mitchell Tanner

The Internet has changed the way we do so many everyday things and as a doctor I’m excited to see the potential it holds for healthcare. By making simple medical testing easier, it has the ability to ensure people get tested for things they should be, but may not be, more regularly. I believe so strongly in this that I am proud to put my name to Hyphen Health and I’m excited to see where we can take the concept and how we can use the convenience and privacy of the Internet to improve people’s health.
