dHealth Network

 

A distributed and community-owned network for healthcare-related transactions that powers a global data-driven healthcare ecosystem. It is adapted to patients’ and industry needs and targets healthcare-related transactions without the noise from other industries.

Technology

The domain-specific blockchain is based on NEM’s next core engine “Symbol”. It is optimized for healthcare-related transactions and designed for scalability and openness.

Decentralization is essential for the network and Supernodes are the guarantors for it. The dHealth Network launched on 29 March 2021 with a limited number of Supernodes operated by partners that share the Foundation’s vision of an equitable healthcare system.
