TrustedHealth Brings Specialized Medicine Onto the Blockchainbr>
TrustedHealth, a blockchain-based patient and doctor-centric health ecosystem in specialized medicine, is launching to increase access to condition-specific specialists around the world.
TrustedHealth is a blockchain-based, patient-led and doctor-guided cooperative focused on life-threatening diseases. Its goal is to source the best methodologies for delivering improved health outcomes for patients, and ensuring that these are accessible to patients all over the world.
Previously, the team behind TrustedHealth created Trustedoctor to help patients and their families in their fight against life-threatening diseases using innovative technology. TrustedHealth is bringing this successful technology onto the blockchain, allowing for transactions and medical record-sharing via bank-level security.
“The way we treat disease is much more specialized than it used to be,” said Philippe Schucht, the chief medical officer of TrustedHealth. “For instance, a patient isn’t diagnosed with general brain cancer, but with a specific subset of the disease that requires a specific treatment plan. The issue is that most people aren’t allowed easy access to the doctors specializing in this specific condition, and it’s resulting in climbing misdiagnosis rates. Through TrustedHealth, we’re bringing the world’s expertise onto one network, making it highly accessible and secure.”
Trustedoctor was formed after founder, Greg Jarząbek, lost his mother to pancreatic cancer. He traveled the world to find her the best treatment, realizing the scattered status of the world’s leading doctor specialists. Since launching Trustedoctor, the network has enlisted 80 doctors from 40 hospitals around the world and currently serves more than 250 patients.
Now, the entire health ecosystem is brought together through blockchain technology on TrustedHealth, spanning beyond virtual consultations and second opinions. Through TrustedHealth, the holistic healthcare process is digital and de-centralized, including initial consultation, medical records and insurance, lab orders, treatment assignments, travel options and payment.
The company plans an ICO presale on March 20 at 12.00 CET (6 a.m. EST), and its crowdsale begins on March 27 (if the hardcap is not reached in the presale).
