Health Heart has its sights on the healthcare industry – data records privacy to be more precise. Their project is to leverage the blockchain to keep sensible patient information private and secure from attacks.
„We’re building a decentralized blockchain-based EHR [electronic health record], with a focus on security, stability, and ease of use for both patients and providers” the developers explain on their website.
Medical private records are probably among the most sensitive information a hacker can steal. In the aftermath of Equifax, many service providers are more aware that they need a better, safer system in place to provide the privacy clients expect of them. This is a product that wants to do exactly that – secure information on an immutable blockchain.
Health Heart addresses health providers. In their own words, they can service „any size group, from single practitioners to multinational hospital chains”.
They claim they can do this easier, more secure and at lower costs than any normal EHR available on the market today.
Health Heart will be, as one might expect, a closed-source technology based on ERC-20.
The EHR is a proprietary product, meant for commercial use and sale. There are no plans to open source any part of the product at any time.
The Health Heart blockchain has the HealthHeart Token (HHT) at its core. „If blockchain is a ledger, HHT is the pen providers use to write the entries down”. What this means is that every operation – writing or changing data into the ledger or transfering patient information from one doctor/clinic to another is a separate transaction, paid in HHT. The token „also functions as a form of authentication, being combined with a provider’s unique ID and other markers to ensure that HHT is only used by providers licensed to work in a given EHR install”.
„Think of it this way – if an attacker wants to steal a patient record and has HHT to attempt to do so, it wouldn’t work since the token hasn’t been integrated with the unique provider- and company-specific information that allows that change. Conversely, a provider may have the unique information, but if the company doesn’t have enough HHT to make the change, the change will not be confirmed until more HHT are purchased” de white paper explain.
This makes HHT a coin with real practical use inside the system.
Right now the ICO is in presalestage and 1200 HHT can be purchased for one ether.
The ICO phase of the project starts December 1st and ends December 31st. Contributions are made in bitcoin and ethereum and there is no minimum required and one ehter buys you 1000HHt.
They will sell 70% of the total 100 million tokens during the presale and crowdsale. Of that, 1% is dedicacted to bounties and 29% to company use.
As of now, there are no early bird discounts.
First off, the team includes seven advisors in the health industry, all of them medical doctors – Ellie Chuang, Charles (Trey) Williams, Wayne A. Martin, Angela Marie Cecil, Oreoluwa Ogunyemi and Nathan Hageman.
The team itself is only 6 people strong – Jennifer Su (Chief Medical Consultant), Jonathan Hoffsuemer (Strategy Consultant), Moe Puint and Gaurav Kashyap (UI/UX designer) and Lek Chum Hou (Community Manager).
The founder, Mark Rizinsky is specialized in security and worked for the current US premier EHR provider for several years as a programmer.
