Doctor Smart – a New Blockchain Solution for the H
Economic, political and societal forces shift the landscape around the healthcare industry consistently, sometimes rapidly. One persistent, undeniable theme is the ever-growing gap between the amount of funds allocated to its development and the ever-increasing demand on services. For patients this means higher healthcare expenditure from rising hospital treatment costs and higher prices for medical services.
Despite consistently greater resources year on year, the quality of medical services is stagnating. In many countries healthcare systems are made up of numerous cumbersome institutions. This has resulted in excessive bureaucracy and wastefulness, as well as poor experiences for end-users. The modern global healthcare sector is clearly full of flaws.
Blockchain Technology May Provide the Solution
Blockchain implementation in the healthcare sector is a relatively new but promising avenue. According to the IBM Institute for Business Value’s report, 56% of 200 healthcare executives will implement blockchain technology at scale between 2018 and 2020.
Why does blockchain attract numerous entrepreneurs in the healthcare industry? First of all blockchain technology, with the right implementation, can facilitate the flow of huge amounts of data, allowing parties to exchange structured medical and financial information safely and quickly.
Doctor Smart, is one of those young companies whose number one goal is to enable patients to access quality medical services through teleconsultations. Doctor Smart is going to launch a one-stop blockchain-based platform that will provide people worldwide with access to all manner of healthcare services. Customers can hold consultations and receive care for various medical and health-related lifestyle issues both offline and online, anytime, anywhere. Pavel Roytberg, a Co-Founder of Doctor Smart, explains:
“Blockchain technology will provide the basis of a new model for health information exchanges by placing the patient at the center of the healthcare ecosystem. Our integrated approach offers patients a variety of solutions in the telemedicine sphere, including online video consultations with healthcare specialists, integration with wearable medical devices, a blockchain-based rating system to evaluate medical specialists, AI solutions, and integration with different ecosystems and databases that store medical data.”
Doctor Smart's platform also provides automated support and quality control measures for medical decision-making. The platform ensures that prescribed medicines are compliant with the patient’s medical issue, medical record and compatible with other medicines.
As well as higher quality of medical services, lower prices are another key advantage of the Doctor Smart ecosystem. Doctor Smart are committed to making various highly qualified specialists (e.g. nutritionists, fitness instructors, psychologists) available to millions of patients of different income levels. On average, consultations with specialists are expected to cost around $7 for all worldwide users.
