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 Supernodes 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 by the end of 2021.

Linked Data

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 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.
