The Hearthy ecosystem consists of a protocol that supports a blockchain-based PHR, a value-sharing digital currency, and a suite of open-source applications that facilitate adoption and increase network effects.
In our ecosystem, patients, medical professionals, healthcare providers and Electronic Health Records (EHR) vendors communicate with each other, generate and transfer value and increase the efficiency, building and deploying a system that is more economical, efficient and patient-centered.
Affordable access to healthcare
Decrease of healthcare costs by cutting out the middleman in the access-to-health process: removing the middleman from the equation has the effect of drastically reducing patients’ waiting time, and quickly giving access to more reliable Personal Health Records (PHR).
While PHRs are typically expensive, Hearhty’s platform is completely free through an open source initiative. It is simple to install and there are no licenses to purchase.
Hearhty’s ecosystem puts the control of medical records in the hands of the patients themselves, who become their own healthcare advocate. The records are also easily and seamlessly transferable to different healthcare providers with different IT systems and architecture.
Ownership of data and user centric KYC
Patients can customize privacy settings and sharing options of their medical records through a user-friendly dashboard. Choosing to give access to healthcare providers and researchers results in tokens or cash back on premiums.
The ecosystem, by design, ensures also the highest level of security for private data. At the same time, healthcare providers become truly accountable when joining Hearthy’s ecosystem.
Accessing health data can be tough for researchers. Hearthy is solving the problem by creating an aggregated anonymous repository of medical data, which can give researchers and developers an invaluable pool of information to create predictive models and healthcare applications, and solve public health problems.
Patients registered on Hearthy’s ecosystem give access to their data anonymously to researchers, and get rewards for sharing.
