Segment 1 - Introduction
Hello, שָׁלוֹם, 大家好, नमस्ते, Selamat!
My name is May and I'll be hosting the AMA with DeHealth.
Today, we have with us a guest from the DeHealth Team.
We are ready to answer all Đecentralized Člub community questions about DeHealth and the healthcare system.
Thanks for the invitation.
You're welcome to the Decentralized Club and it's an honor to have you here.
Could you quickly tell us more about yourself and your job at DeHealth?
I am Denys Tsvaig, Co-founder DeHealth.
I am also the President of the National Cybersecurity Association.
We build a new web 3.0 protocol architecture for future standard
of the medical big data-driven ecosystem.
Let's now take some questions about your project.
What is the creation story of the DeHealth project?
Thanks for the question May.
A couple of years ago, I and Anna (my main partner, who is also with us on this AMA) had a dream - to use the latest technology and science so that people do not die prematurely so that they can live longer and happier.
Our journey began with this dream. We have hired management in England to help us define the business strategy we are currently pursuing.
We saved three human lives, there is a description of one such story on the site, take a look.
This gives us the strength to go forward every day.
That's amazing! Looking forward to more testimonies from DeHealth.
What innovative solution is DeHealth bringing to topple its competitors with similar offerings in the crypto and healthcare sector?
Good question, I will try to answer it in detail.
There are few DeHealth analogs in the world, we are revolutionizing the healthcare system and bringing great value to the crypto world.
The project is led by the DeHealth foundation which aims to involve all of the interested participants in making people’s lives better through the improvement of health-related IT infrastructure.
DeHealth HLT Network represents the core infrastructure piece that unites around itself all the ecosystem of products led by DeHealth Foundation:
DeHealth HLT Network, a combination of blockchain-based protocol and decentralized infrastructure for medical data storage, its processing, building derivative machine learning models and their distribution via API;
embeddable DeHealth AI Assistant “Dr.Umka” utilizing the API of DeHealth HLT Network and its big data sets and machine learning models pools;
DeHealth Hospital OS - a software package for hospitals that includes Admin Panel, Doctor’s Cabinet, and Patient’s Cabinet;
International Intercompatible Electronic Health Record (iiEHR), which product goal is to become a pluggable medical card to any standardized hospital software globally;
DeHealth Educational portal;
DeHealth Marketplace of services and medical goods.
How is DeHealth used to obtain health-related data? What are the steps involved?
1. We are currently running a pilot project - a cloud web platform that serves 2.7 million patients, 34,00 doctors, 650 hospitals. Data is fed into the system from doctors, clinics, and medical laboratories
2. We have partnered with some sound startups in the medical sphere which have strong demand for validated medical data.
3. We have MVP for International Medical Card products.
4. We have developed a technical concept for DeHealth HLT core for cross-integration of our DeHealth products family into one ecosystem.
That's a good one.
How can one acquire the DeHealth token and what are the utilities?
Soon we are planning to hold a token sale (Public 1). We will announce this on our social networks.
After that, the token will be listed on DEXs and CEXs 🔥🛰🔝
The token will be used for the following purposes: ✌️
1. The main utility is paying for API calls to the core DeHealth infrastructure with pre-validated medical data and ML models trained on top of it. The more economical utility value potential absorbed into the network, the higher will be demand for the token.
2. You can stake a token to participate in the public network of block producers. This network has PoS consensus and controls the state of the database of medical data-sets stored inside of the inter-corporate network.
3. You can stake a token as a certified medical prediction analyst to participate and earn tokens in exchange for professional data validation services.
4. You can stake a token as a certified/approved medical data supplier to earn tokens for medical data sets provided to the DeHealth HLT Core.
At the current phase payment for doctor services directly on the marketplace will be possible only through third-party crypto-merchant services using auto-conversion. We can potentially integrate services like these.
Your use case is solid!
What is further planned for DeHealth to achieve this year?
We keep a lot of things in secret, but I will tell you something according to our roadmap 😉
1. Development of interchangeable medical data storage/processing/transfer protocol - we are open to both cross-enterprise and open community help contributions.
2. At the second stage, due to regulatory limitations we plan to involve companies in a distributed corporate blockchain network to store the medical data together. This corporate blockchain network that incorporates data will be controlled by the open public network with a PoS consensus mechanism for transparency.
3. At the third stage we'll focus on research and implementation of safe data-wrapping technology for public blockchain protocol so that the user could share and take control over the access to their medical data directly on public blockchains. At this stage, we are fully open to any contributions from the public developers' community.
A governance mechanism will be implemented for the third stage.
Until the end of this year, we are focused on issuing the DeHealth token (HLT) and entering into large international partnerships.
Thank you for letting us into your secret 😉
Let's now take some questions from our Twitter community.
Segment 2 - Twitter Questions
As an Indian medical student, I am excited to know how your project could bring about changes in the field of medicine especially in developing countries like India and many other Asian countries? (consider the reality of technological backwardness)
Twitter Username: @AkhilJo72010113
Through DeHealth, you can access the civilized healthcare market. You can make an appointment with a doctor from England, for example.
You can also earn DeHealth tokens by taking care of your health. Later, there will be your personal AI assistant who will be able to give you health advice.
Thus, we want to provide access to medicine for more than 3 billion people and bring them to the crypto community.
I read that there is a royalty Program within the ecosystem of Health, so I'm curious, what is this program about, how can I be a loyal user for the platform, and what are the rewards received for it?
Twitter Username: @Alicewonder1202
Imagine that you can mine our token while taking care of your health.
You follow the doctor's recommendations, maintain health, lead a healthy lifestyle, etc., and get a token for everything.
For the crypto community, we have also developed a pharming program.
That's a really good way to earn HLT!
Earning while staying healthy!
You described it beautifully.
The staking rewards mechanism is designed on a competitive basis between different Harvesting Nodes. The more HLT tokens a Harvesting Node holds, the more its competitive power for the block’s staking reward distribution.
Let's take the last Twitter question
You mentioned that users can earn DeHealth tokens for creating content and engagement in the ecosystem. Can you tell us more about this? Does this work as an Ambassador program where users are rewarded based on their contributions to the ecosystem? How can we participate?
Twitter Username: @crypto_odeb
The long-term fundamental value of the token is based on the capped utility of the aggregated medical data and derivative machine learning models stored in Data Lakes of DeHealth HLT Network core sub-networks.
We motivate people to fill the digital health map with the data necessary to train DeHealth AI and shape the data market, and for this they receive tokens.
The work with Ambassadors is carried out individually now.
Let's now take three questions from our website community.
Segment 3 - Website Questions
One thing that caught my attention when researching your project is that users will be able to receive AI-based health and treatment recommendations, and I’d like to know if these are just general tips an AI will give us, or if it will have access to all our data and then will recommend accordingly. However, most importantly, I’d like to know if this was reviewed/developed by actual medical teams?
Telegram Username: @Sharaylug
AI will not diagnose, the doctor will.
To build strong AI, we need quality data that we can trust.
For this reason, we accept data from doctors, clinics, and laboratories. And they go through the blockchain, which guarantees their immutability and integrity
You recently announced that you have introduced a new product to your AI-Based Mobile Application (AI-based bot) which is supported by eHealth and Huawei. If this bot is an automated program that interacts with users and helps in adding convenience for customers. What will its function be in your mobile App? In what way will this bot minimize the work of doctors in terms of consultations?
Telegram Username: @Legar57
For these purposes, we work with international anti-aging centers, universities, and research centers.
“Start your personal health insurance fund by using DeHealth”
How will this actually work? Will you make partnerships with several hospitals regarding this? like other centralized health insurance platforms, do they have a deal with several hospitals in case of people using their insurance fund? & how this insurance fund works when an emergency is needed in DeHealth? Do users can immediately claim the insurance fund when they need it the most?
Telegram Username: @MinxOxyde
Multilingual interactive AI-chatbot Dr. Umka which helps to collect anamnesis, monitor health, and educate in matters of maintaining health and longevity.
The use of neural networks is one of the powerful educational trends of the 21st century, including in health and wellness education.
You can ask the bot any question or choose one of the suggested ones. Artificial intelligence will select an answer taking into account possible semantic connections.
At any time of the day, the chatbot will provide the patient with a list of questions, determine the diagnosis and draw up an individual examination plan. In other words, the bot will survey injuries, operations, allergies, pathologies, medications taken, or lifestyle features.
People will be able to pre-enter information about their personal anamnesis into the DeHealth electronic medical record using a chatbot based on artificial intelligence.
The mobile app is our other product.
It's now time to take questions from our live audience
Looking forward to your questions.
In this 4th segment, I will open the group for some seconds for the live community to shoot you some pressing questions.
Please pick four original questions to answer.
Try to ignore generic, vague, and copy-paste questions 😊
As a measure to deter bots and reward hunters, could you please pick an emoji that will be included in the questions so you can tell original questions apart?
---Chat was then opened for the live community to send in their questions---
Segment 4 - Live Questions
Please select the questions now.
Kindly prioritize the questions with the 🛰 emoji
DeHealth wants to bring medical facilities to all equally. I like this idea and would love to know more about it. So how does your platform monetize medical records? Can a doctor or health center, etc collect medical data and send it via your platform to the needy? Please explain🛰️
Big Data and AI technological advancements are revolutionizing many industries. Healthcare is among them and is still one of the industries with enormous unrealized potential since all healthcare services and products hugely rely on historical data. At the same time, healthcare services provided to end-users are susceptible to data quality and its provenance reliability.
Our revolution is that people will be able to generate income from the sale of their data by using medical centers and other organizations as agents.
What are the existing problems that DeHealth helped in solving in which other related projects are not capable enough to solve
What are your competitive advantages, how easy to use and access is the DeHealth project?
The following list of challenges arises from the defined problem set:
regulatory requirements for healthcare data storage and transfer;
complex multidimensional privacy-preserving tools to serve data mining/machine learning requirements and provide patients with flexible control over their data;
provenance control for healthcare data sets and derivative trained machine learning models through the whole life cycle stages;
trust minimization to infrastructure providers;
trust minimization to data suppliers;
rust minimization to data validators;
trust minimization to protocol founding team and organization;
crypto-economic incentivization tools for all key ecosystem roles: data suppliers, data validators, scientists, patients, third-party business customers;
development of an inter-compatible standard for Electronic Health Record to source patients’ data, optimize data sets reusability for data validators, and drive patient adoption;
drive mass adoption of the new opportunities that will be available on the DeHealth HLT Network launch.
Two more questions to go! 🎉
The end goal is user-controlled health data but will the firm retain some of these data for record purposes?🛰
The DeHealth HLT Network is a proposition of a new web 3.0 architecture for future standard
of the medical big data-driven ecosystem represented by a combination of blockchain-based core protocol and decentralized infrastructure for medical data storage, processing, validation, and API-based distribution of both data sets and derivative machine learning models.
Now our goal is to launch and develop the HLT Network
One more question to go! 🎉
Nowadays, most investors only care
about profits and ignore the long-term benefits. So can you give them some advice on why they should buy and hold this token in the long term? 🛰️
The lawyer forbids me to give advice 🙂
I can only answer the value of our token.
Health tokens (HLT) is the network’s native utility cryptocurrency.
The major fundamental factors driving the value of the HLT token’s utility and the whole DeHealth HLT Network utility are:
growing volume and utility of aggregated medical data sets;
continuously increased quality of medical data sets through validation by certified professionals;
growing volume and utility of machine learning models trained on top of the medical data sets;
a growing number of potential use-cases from the medical dApps development community which drives fundamental demand for the HLT token as an access payment tool for the API calls access;
a growing number of token holders among medical data suppliers after the second version of the crypto-economic security model will be rolled out;
a growing number of token holders among certified medical data validators after the second version of the crypto-economic security model will be rolled out.
Do you have time for one more? 😁
Of course. I like 🙂
Okay, please answer 😁
What countries is the DeHealth app available for use in? 🛰️
We have successfully launched a cloud web platform in Eastern Europe.
The mobile app will be available next year for several continents.
Aaaaaaand it's a wrap! 🎉
