Healthcare needs an update
It does not take a pandemic to realize that …
Healthcare is perfectly positioned to be the next area of blockchain adoption because it is highly fragmented, full of intermediaries, and suffers from a lack of transparency and inefficient processes.
dHealth Network addresses these problems because it is not controlled by any single player, can be accessed directly by all stakeholders as a peer-to-peer network, and functions as a layer of trust. dHealth’s proof-of-stake blockchain enables privacy-preserving interactions among healthcare stakeholders without the need to build separate data-processing infrastructures.
dHealth Ecosystem Components
The healthcare-dedicated network of nodes serves as an alternative solution for permissioned, regulated, and government-controlled infrastructure. It provides the pillars of a real-time and efficient data-transaction healthcare ecosystem.
Based on the dHealth Network, interested parties can build their use-cases. The network’s value-proposition consists of the network components that enable the ecosystem partners to benefit from each other.
The ecosystem components have already been developed in the context of existing use-cases or will be completed in 2022.
Identity & Access
dHealth Network offers a unique identity that can be linked to a person's existing identifiers in the healthcare system.
Wallet & Payment
NFTs, Certificates & Registries
Blockchain-based certificates can be verified independently by 3rd parties, e.g. in the case of Covid-19 related certificates. Registries can be accessed in multi-stakeholder scenarios without the need for additional IT infrastructure.
User-controlled Data Repository
User's can link data in off-chain repositories and control the access to it.
Tracking & Tracing
For the tracking and tracing of goods in the healthcare system blockchain offers a unique opportunity where partners do not want to share infrastructure or use intermediaries.
Digital contracts can be used to streamline and automate processes, hence, increasing the effectiveness of transactions in the healthcare system.
Health-to-Earn is a concept wherein an individual can earn for providing his health data or perform ‘healthy tasks’ such as going for a walk or a jog. However, it can go far beyond that—individuals can be rewarded —for getting regular checkups or stopping with bad habits such as smoking. The possibility to earn while performing healthy tasks is welcome in a world plagued by unhealthy lifestyles that cause severe issues to individuals and unnecessarily burden the healthcare system. So, try it out and earn real DHP!
Digital Health Points
The native currency of the network is the Digital Health Point (DHP). DHP is a utility and payment token compliant with the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) regulations for crypto-currencies. It has a fixed supply and variable value.
Operators of Supernodes can issue their own tokens on the network including stable coins.
