Blockchain in Healthcare:- Chances are you use a lot of data without even realizing it. The thing about using data is that you’re creating data too. When you visit a website, you submit to other users of the internet data about your browsing habits. When you send a message on Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, or Skype, every aspect of how you communicate is recorded and stored on servers located all around the world.
Given the number of people who are using the internet nowadays, a huge amount of data is being created every single day, minute, and second. In fact, each minute of 2017, 156 million emails and 16 million text messages were sent, 46,200 images were uploaded to instagram, and 452,000 tweets were tweeted. That’s a lot of data.
And this data is useful. In the most basic sense, it helps social media and other platforms to match you with information, entertainment, businesses, and products that would interest you the most. Now, finding things to read, watch, buy, and do, is getting easier than ever.
However, it’s really about time for big data to do something that will truly improve people’s lives. It’s time for big data to revolutionize healthcare.
And eHealth First (www.ehfirst.io) is at the forefront of this movement.
A lot of medical and healthcare data exists, and today it is almost all digitized. This “big data of medicine” includes several huge corpuses of information.
First, there is the medical literature. Since the rise of modern medical science, hundreds of thousands of articles and books have come through the academy and been published – and later uploaded online. Second, there are medical records – millions of detailed doctor’s notes that contain information about diagnoses and treatments are saved on servers in hospitals and clinics everywhere.
eHealth First, a company founded by a group of top physicians and computer and medical science experts, has figured out how to gather, process, and analyze data in order to increase healthcare access and human longevity.
The eHealth First platform consists of two applications:
The first application is an easy-to-use mobile app that enables users to indicate and track the basic indicators of health, including the user’s biological age and level on the frailty index. Additionally, it offers assessments of various body systems. At the end of the process, the user will receive a list of recommendations from the system — as well as offers for additional diagnostics, laboratory tests, and medical consultations — based on the screening.
The second application is a knowledgebase of medical literature, built to give physicians and other healthcare professionals easy access to the information they need to treat their patients.
An IT platform, eHealth First can be used by developers to develop many types of healthcare apps.
At the core of both these applications are AI algorithms that enable natural language processing, for quick reference of medical data.
The other key technology of eHealth first, of course, is the blockchain.
Within the platform, a large amount of medical data will be stored on distributed ledgers. This means that medical information will not be stored on some central server only, but rather everywhere on the net. Data is doubly secure because it will be encoded, and only accessible by the right people – smart contract technology ensures it.
What’s more, blockchain storage of medical data means that it can be accessed anywhere. Whether you use eHealth First in California, Thailand, Argentina, or Latvia, you can be sure that your data is safe and only accessible by you.
THE EHEALTH FIRST ICO
EHF is currently in the private placement stage of its ICO and is seeking initial investments.
The ICO is set to take place during the first part of 2018.
