Healthcare systems have globally undergone significant changes and improvements. Today, new medications are being created, observational studies and clinical trials are done daily, doctors and professionals are more up-to-date, patients are in the loop of what’s happening around, and technical enhancements are saving the health sector from collapsing.
Technology is constantly pushing us forward to unleash its powers. It has already left its mark on the health ecosystem. It helped this field rise over its weakness to develop into a robust and efficient system.
But have you seen Stephen Hawking’s saying: “One of the basic rules of the universe is that nothing is perfect“? Even this massive medical advancement will fail us, and we will need to rebuild and improve. That’s the typical nature of life: We don’t stop at any phase; we instead keep moving.
Recently, the Covid19 pandemic shocked the whole world. And since then, we have witnessed an evident lack of faith in medical institutes. This virus crawled into our lives and shook our safety. It strained global health systems and revealed weaknesses, even in the most advanced countries! It left us questioning how to bring greater effectiveness to national health systems.
dHealth Network has heard all your questions, sensed your fears and dedicated all its efforts to deliver a safe, convenient answer! It aims to revolutionize the healthcare system with the most advanced technologies.
Who is the dHealth network?
dHealth Network is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to the digital growth of healthcare. It created its own blockchain-based platform and aimed to digitize health. dHealth Network addresses the key issues plaguing healthcare. It believes in a future where patients grant access to their health data. With dHealth, users can regain control over their digital data and save money. It has a token system that can incentivize users to share their data. It also monetizes human behavior pushing them to care more for their health.
dHealth Network has partnered with famous companies worldwide like Roche and Eli Lilly. It has deployed many projects already, and more are in progress.
The opportunity is also open for all developers to build their dApps on its network. Using blockchain as a backend infrastructure enables business cases that focus on transparency. With the elimination of intermediaries, secure access to health data is more straightforward. Thus there is a stronger connection between patients and healthcare providers. This healthcare dedicated platform can guarantee data immutability and can trace its origin. It can also reduce the costs of clinical trials, software installations, and patients’ receipts. This first healthcare dedicated blockchain foundation can be the future of health.
Famous Worldwide Partners
Have you heard of Roche? It’s a global healthcare company operating in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics. This same Roche has joined the dHealth network’s blockchain. Also, Eli Lilly, one of the top 5 Pharmaceutical companies globally, joined the network. dHealth Network is partnering with famous companies and projects worldwide. For example, it recently partnered with OrganX as well to build the first solid organ exchange.
The project will be AI-powered and based on blockchain. dHealth’s partners share the foundation’s vision of a fair healthcare system. Some companies are using dHealth’s blockchain infrastructure to build projects. Others operate as nodes on the network, granting it power and credibility. In all ways, dHealth’s aim isn’t to be only famous. But having well-known partners is proof that it has got something great behind the scenes!
What Does dHealth Offer You?
dHealth Network has its token economy. It uses tokens to incentivize users to care more for their health or share their data. Its native currency is DHP’ Digital Health Points’. dHealth also has its own wallet. It allows users to interact with dApps in the dHealth Ecosystem. It’s where they can view and maintain their $DHP balance. Users must pay all transaction fees generated on the dHealth Network with DHP. DHP holders can sell and buy DHP via decentralized and centralized exchanges. End users can also receive benefits along with block rewards distributed to them.
End-users can build their solutions or applications on the dHealth network. Decentralized apps (dApps) will be available on Github for that reason. dHealth has also included documentation and a guide for developers. It describes and supports features that are live on the public dHealth network. It introduces users to the dHealth ecosystem components. The content skims the developer through everything, from node installation to troubleshooting.
dHealth Foundation came up with an innovation fund as well. This fund benefits users who build strategic solutions on the dHealth network. It’s used to support projects that have a positive impact on ecosystem growth. Anyone who pays 250 DHP can submit project proposals to the innovation fund. Innovation hubs, initiated by dHealth, will thus check and approve the project funding.
Real-Life Solutions from dHealth
dHealth Network isn’t only a theory, but it turns words into actions. It has already deployed many real-life projects dedicated to healthcare. Centiva Life app, deployed by dHealth, is in use for providing health data. Vietnam National Lung Hospital (NLH) is already using the app. It helped in monitoring respiratory diseases, especially tuberculosis. Patients lack knowledge of this disease, its symptoms, and its consequences. That’s why data collection was necessary to help in its treatment. Patients and their families also earn DHP for filling up some questionnaires. The app offers treatment and medication guidance to hemophilia patients as well.
dHealth also offered its blockchain infrastructure for Rabies Vaccine tracking. This happened in Mali and Ivory Coast with Swiss TPH studies. The aim is to reduce severe conditions or deaths affected by dog-mediated rabies.
And as mentioned earlier, dHealth partnered with OrganX. As a result, the project will be worldwide the first AI-powered and blockchain-based solid organ exchange.
The most exciting project is a recent showcase called HealthToEarn. As the name implies, care for your health and earn! Users can earn DHPs by only recording their health activities. They can walk, jog or run and provide their health data to earn. The app includes activities for the disabled as well. It is simple and requires downloading an app and connecting it to your wallet through a plugin. The app even rewards users if they stop some bad habits such as smoking. This project incentivizes users and encourages them to care for their health. We may ignore daily exercise due to busy lifestyles, but if we can earn, why not?!
