Basic Science Research

Clinical medicine is founded on basic science research, but not all research is done in the lab! Learn more about how our tech can help researchers advance medicine.

Research on the Blockchain

By decentralizing patient care we can empower users to share their health statistics (e.g. distance data, sleep data, nutritional data from their phones or wearable gear) to our network, providing public health researchers vast amounts of knowledge on health impact. We also plan to incentivize unused computational power of our network to great projects such as Cure Coin or SETI!

Sharing Patient Data

Your health and privacy matter most, moreso now than any other point in human history. Learn more about how we plan to use the power of the blockchain to put the power of your health data into your own hands.

Patient Data = Your Data

When you use our platform, your health data becomes specifically coded to your wallet (using multiple layers of security). Only you can determine who is allowed to see your records (or parts thereof), and know who has accessed your records and for what purposes (e.g. research). Not only does this provide security, it also makes transferring health records quick and seamless. No more pesky faxing of forms!

Revolutionize Academic Medicine

Everyone knows doctors spent a lot of time in school. But how do they start? How do they progress to becoming independent practitioners?

Blockchain University

The answer is a long time studying and networking. Our foundation's primary goal is revolutionizing how doctors become doctors, helping those interested in medicine (pre-meds) connect with those in practice, and to ensure trainees retain the right skills in the shortest amount of time. Through partnerships with major academic institutions, professional medical societies, and licensing bodies.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is a way for healthcare providers to care for you wherever you may be in the world. How can our EMR help you as a provider make care efficient? And you as a patient much more convenient?

Telemedicine on the Blockchain

Technology has improved a lot the past century. We're advancing to the point where teleconferencing relays not only voice and video, but where integrated medical technology can also submit real-time data (e.g. a digital stethoscope for heart sounds). Our foundation plans to invest heavily in technology that can integrate blockchain record keeping with real-time user data using the ``Internet of Things``.

The Theracoin Foundation

We are a group of healthcare providers who see a  need to better medicine through technology and a vision for an ideal system to meet it. Blockchain technology has emerged as a way to decentralize not only finance, but software and policy development. All too often medical providers are at the whims of their hospital system, often not run by physicians, to use a proprietary software that cannot evolve as rapidly as healthcare does. By allowing medical providers to help design the software they want to use, and to build a community with it, we hope to return power and efficiency to those providing care. The net benefit returns to the patient who is able to save commuting and office visit time, and money, by finding providers on-demand through a telemedicine focused blockchain wallet.

This is designed not to replace current medical practices, but to augment them. Creating an economy for users to simplify routine and urgent medical care, current providers to streamline their practice, and giving new medical trainees an avenue to further advance the practice of medicine.

As of April 2018 we are focusing on developing provider-friendly smart contracting solutions for established, partnered, blockchain projects. In addition we are functioning as a robust PR and research advisory group with a focus toward educating other healthcare practitioners and the lay public; we make sure our colleagues are as up to date as possible on the future of medical technologies and promote leading projects along the way. As a non-profit we are able to offer all these services at little to no-cost to our partners, and we are able to give back to our communities by allowing our interns to work with projects we see as the premiere solutions in this space.

See our partnership page to learn more about projects we are currently affiliated with. We are also open to working with other medical blockchain projects, please contact us to learn more.

Help Us Revolutionize and Advance Medical Care

  • Fundamentally, the answers to our challenges in healthcare relies in engaging and empowering the individual.

    Elizabeth Holmes

  • If you look at healthcare today, it’s all about disease. It’s not about understanding wellness at all.

    Leroy Hood

  • Effective use of technology is important to deliver healthcare. By leveraging technology, you can bring down lack of access and cost of healthcare.

    N. R. Narayana Murthy

  • Organizing healthcare information is a daunting task, but it is not an impossible task. We’ve had people walk on the moon. This is a lot more doable.

    Bill Maris

  • Please, let patients help improve healthcare. Let patients help steer our decisions, strategic and practical. Let patients help define what value in medicine is.

    Dave deBronkart

  • Healthcare providers will compete to offer the best record of patient safety at the lowest prices. Hospitals and patients will benefit from having accurate information about areas of excellence and areas that must be improved.

    Timothy Murphy

  • Providing patients and consumers with solid information on the cost and quality of their healthcare options can literally make the difference between life or death; and play a decisive role in whether a family or employer can afford healthcare.

    Timothy Murphy

  • Electronic medical records are, in a lot of ways, I think the aspect of technology that is going to revolutionize the way we deliver care. And it’s not just that we will be able to collect information, it’s that everyone involved in the healthcare enterprise will be able to use that information more effectively.

    Risa Lavizzo-Mourey

  • A lot of genetic testing hasn’t been integrated into healthcare because it has been expensive. I want to make people realise that they have the ability to be in charge of their own health.
