Public Blockchain Infrastructure for HealthcareThe dHealth Network can align the incentives of all stakeholders in the healthcare system by making its processes more efficient, transparent, and valuable. Live since 29 March
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.
dHealth Network offers a unique identity that can be linked to a person's existing identifiers in the healthcare system.
Wallet & Payment
A blockchain-based token system is predestined to align incentives among ecosystem participants and allows for the secure and transparent transfer of assets. Download Wallet from Github
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'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.
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.
