54%

of internet users are willing to share their health data with their health insurance if they receive incentives. 79% of German online users want the power to decide who can view their health data

$536 bn

is volume of the global digital health market by 2025. A substantial part comes from the monetization of individual’s data and belongs to the people!

A blockchain-based marketplace: the missing link to motivate YOU to digitize YOUR personal health data

Decentralized

No central database due to distributed architecture and blockchain technology

Incentives

The HIT token aligns the motivation of all network participants and promotes digitization of information

Global platform

Execution of new or existing business cases in healthcare on top of the HIT platform

1. Research

Submit a research project that intends to use the HIT platform to access and recruit participants and/or compensate them for making their data shareable.

2. General exchange of health data for tokens

How can your processes be optimized when you incentivize people with HIT tokens to digitize their health data? Use your imagination: health insurances, hospitals, pharmacies, doctors offices etc.

3. Prevention & Behavioral Modification

Use HIT tokens to incentivize healthy behavior and risk detection.

4. Make data shareable

You have a use case where individuals can get access to their health data and make them shareable and traceable? You can be from Industry (Pharma, MedTech, ICT & Connected Health) or government or just someone who sits on a lot of data!

Token Economy

Phase1

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

Phase 2

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.

Phase 3

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.
