What use is technology if it does not solve real-world problems? Research has proven that good health data management allows healthcare providers to create holistic views on patients, personalise treatments, improve communication and improve health outcomes. The Trufield project aims to create cutting edge health data technology that is needed in most developing countries using blockchain technology.
There are many ways to consider the value of new technology. The value it creates for a user, how it improves the lives of the user, but most importantly, how it creates a better world. By some estimates, there are already 2 billion mobile phones and there will be 1.6 billion new mobile internet subscribers by the year 2020. Here at Trufield, our vision is to improve the world’s health by creating a digitized medical record platform for everyone using already available low-cost mobile phone technology and web based computer platforms. The Trufield projects aims to create an innovative electronic medical records system for people living in poor developing communities. The Trufield decentralized application will be accessible anywhere and at anytime from any mobile device or web based platform. Even where there is no internet access, the Trufield decentralized application will be accessible using our unique USSD protocol. Healthcare providers will be able to access and add new patient information using Trufield’s USSD Protocol. Even patients without internet access will also be able to access their medical information using the USSD protocol.
Trufield will be powered by the Ethereum Blockchain. This way, we can ensure that the data and tools emerging from the new decentralized blockchain technology serve the interests of people across the globe, especially those of poor and vulnerable populations.
