Our Solutions

The Problems

First, US big pharm spends $157 billion a year on research.

Second, Medical Errors are now the 3rd largest cause of death in the US costing $1 trillion in the US alone.

The Data Solution

Population-based de-identified patient data has already produced advances against WHO’s (World Health Organisation) top ten diseases including diabetes and heart failure.

Population data lets researchers tackle the big issues in medicine.

What MediChain Offers

Using Blockchain Technology, MediChain will promote these research breakthroughs.

Sharing Medical Data

By patients opting in and sharing their medical data, they will be able to help people who are suffering from similar health issues.

Additionally, sharing medical data will streamline the process of finding cures to the world’s worst diseases.

FAQ

  • The healthcare data systems currently in use are the ones we are trying to disrupt. The most obvious of these are the electronic health record (EHR), or electronic medical record (EMR) companies that dominate the market. They gather and store patient records; we plan to give them rewards for their data (taken from our pharmaceutical company payments and partner tokens program), they become natural allies. Companies like patientory.com have put themselves in direct conflict with those massive companies.
  • Medical insurance databases like the French Système national d’information inter-régime de l’assurance maladie (SNIIR-AM) prove the market for epidemiological, pharmacoepidemiological and health economic research and will actually form a subset of our databases, although our data will be more flexible and designed to be useful to pharmaceutical companies using the knowledge gained over the last 15 years since SNIIR and EGB were set up.
  • MediChain would actually provide a free-to-user big data store for National Providers which would create huge value to them which we can leverage.

Non-token operating profits come mainly from pharmaceutical company ‘shallow scans’ of the databases to look for trends. It is expected that no more than 5% of this will go into bonuses and incentivization and profit sharing schemes.

We are using the ICObox platform for our tokensale. This platform is very mature and has been tested by many ICOs. It was tested during some super popular ICOs that faced hackers attacks (Paragon, Crypterium) and worked out just fine.

The current generation of MediChain is as secure as your Bitcoin and Ethereum currency. After launch we will be adding optional smartcard security.

Our team currently constitutes of approximately 20 individuals. Most of our team members are highly experienced individuals with background in healthcare, blockchain and startups. We also have a very strong advisory board that includes some of the most knowledgeable and influential people in the blockchain ecosystem.

The concept has been under development and refinement by founder Mark Baker since June 2015. Medrec which the MVP of the first generation technology is to be based on was first discussed publicly in 15 Apr 2016. The ICO aims to launch the first large-scale commercial version in 2018.

There are multiple projects aiming to fulfill a similar role as we are. We believe that MediChain may become one of the industry leaders in decentralized EHR and patient databases in the coming years. We share a similar vision with the projects listed above, but we will be approaching the problem with finer attention to research, issues with systems currently in place around the world, and blockchain integration.

From an architectural standpoint, we don’t feel blockchain alone is able to scale for the masses. So instead of storing all the medical data in the blockchain like our competitors, we created a hybrid of blockchain and offchain data storage. The blockchain stores pointers to the data. The data itself gets stored in the cloud and is only accessible by the cryptographic keys. This results in faster speeds, while still having the privacy and security of the blockchain.

Yes, that can be organized through icobox.io

Yes, that will be organized through icobox.io and will begin on February 5th.

ICO progress will be posted on the front page of the site and through twitter at regular intervals.

We have a hard cap.

You can read what the benefits are for token holders at the “Token” section above.

No. MediChain Utility Tokens (MCU) represent the value of arbitrary voting rights and patient data blocks.

Like many ICOs, the income we received during the token sale is being treated as regular revenue, and is immediately available for use according to the business plan. Any tokens awarded to employees in connection to the token sale will be subject to a vesting period, just like equity, and will be paid out from the corporate accounts on a set schedule.

If you want to purchase MediChain tokens for more than $250K in the presale or $5M in the main sale we are available to discuss this as you wish. Please contact katy.blackwell@medichain.online

Be careful of scammers! They are common during ICO’s. We’ve already received one report of a Twitter account attempting to impersonate us. It links to a Google Doc’s Form to attempt to have people send them Eth.

We’ve reported them to both Twitter and Google. But, there will likely be more scammers as we get closer to our ICO.

You can find our official social media channels by the links at the top of our site. Within our Telegram group, only “admins” should be trusted.
