Lack of access to healthcare is one of the primary problems affecting humankind. Communities without enough physicians or healthcare facilities are usually poor, and those lacking the means to travel are negatively impacted the most.
HealthSapiens is solving this problem through our existing 1.0 platform, where we provide 24/7 physician access to patients with a phone or internet connection for a small monthly fee. The addition of a blockchain and DOC tokens with HealthSapiens 2.0 will ease the pain of switching currency and will increase access to doctors, pharmaceuticals, and electronic medical records (EMR).
The HealthSapiens 2.0 Interface
Our current HealthSapiens 1.0 platform enables direct interaction with the network, and patients are able to access the Patient Portal using a unique identifier, username and password. Through this interface, the following actions are conducted:
- patients seeking consultations (both primary and second-opinion)
- physicians providing diagnoses and potential treatments
- sharing and updating EMRs
With HealthSapiens 2.0, patients will have increased access to more and better data. Once access is granted, patients are led to their dashboard. The dashboard allows patients to:
- Seek consultation from physicians around the world
- Query physicians by rating, specialty, geographic location, etc
- Access their EMR from legacy systems and share data with various providers
- Submit reviews and rank physicians
Physicians can also access our HealthSapiens 2.0 portal using their unique identifier, username and password. Once access is granted, physicians are led to the dashboard, where physicians can:
- Upload their profile and credentials
- List their services and respective rates
- Interact with patients virtually to provide diagnostic consultation
- Bid to review the work of other doctors
- Access and update a patient’s EMR
Researchers can access our portal using their unique identifier, username and password as well. Once access is granted, researchers are led to the dashboard, where they can:
- Upload their profile and background
- List their research and publications
- Bid to review the work of other scholars
- Seek access to data for pilot projects
The HealthSapiens portals are a gateway to an effective, transparent, efficient and reliable global healthcare system.
Future HealthSapiens Interface
Our blockchain technology built on the existing portal will facilitate patient and physician interaction across payment settlement, data exchange and peer review and solve the problem of lack of access to healthcare.
With its 3 in 1 consumer-centric blockchain model, HealthSapiens 2.0 will play a major role in decentralizing healthcare by providing a self-regulated ecosystem where stakeholders operate away from the rigid and costly structures of fee-for-service, to a mutually incentivizing outcome-based solution. We are moving away from the interest of the institution to the interest of the individual, progressing healthcare for humankind.
