a blockchain-based marketplace: the missing link to motivate YOU to digitize YOUR personal health data
The Health Information Traceability (HIT) Foundation offers a marketplace that allows individuals to digitize and monetize their health data and trace its usage. It addresses two key issues plaguing the healthcare industry: 1) Monopolization of health data leading to siloes and inefficiencies 2) lack of incentives for individuals to digitize and share their health data. It is through the individual and the use of blockchain technology that a meaningful exchange of data can take place in a fair, secure and transparent manner.
No central database due to distributed architecture and blockchain technology
The HIT token aligns the motivation of all network participants and promotes digitization of information

modern healthcare is data driven. the kind of data that can improve treatments and eliminates inefficiencies comes in different forms: MEDICAL RESEARCH data is the most obvious one but also information about a person’s LIFESTYLE as well as simple ADMINISTRATIVE or DEMOGRAPHIC data. but it is of limited use if it is not digitized. through HIT healthy individuals and patients alike can make their data shareable and valuable.

Individuals are interested in earning tokens. In order to do so they must be willing to digitize their health-related data and make them shareable
Information seekers must acquire tokens in order to compensate individuals for giving access to their data – Existing data holders can enrich their data or earn tokens by making data accessable.
Tokens can be used to redeem Services – Tokens can be used in Loyalty programs
System – How it works
Process of Token Transfer and Data Access
The HIT aligns network participants to achieve common goals — the growth of the network and the appreciation of the HIT token. Based on smart contracts the user/patient can receive tokens corresponding to the “value” of the data that is assigned by the information seeker. The smart contract that is incorporated in the request determines the access to the data and the transfer of token under the agreed conditions.
