Healthcare is plagued with waste and inefficiencies that are directly attributable to intermediaries such as clearinghouses and outdated technology vendors. This situation is ripe for blockchain-based disruption. PokitDok is leading the charge with DokChain, our technology for healthcare on blockchain.
DokChain is a distributed network of transaction processors operating on both financial and clinical data across the healthcare industry. Our goal is to leverage blockchain technology across a broad range of industry participants to pave the way for a new healthcare economy in which data and services are quantifiable and exchangeable. And, where the security and privacy of sensitive information is reinforced by strong guarantees, and where transaction history can be audited longitudinally.
Encrypts, distributes, and controls data so there is no single point of failure.
Replaces many manual, paper-intensive functions with automated processes.
Keeps permanent record of key elements of healthcare transactions without storing personally identifiable information.
Solves the current disconnect between patients' desired access and control over their healthcare information and the healthcare system's ability to provide such connectivity.
Contextually relevant, multi-party identity verification and authentication
Dynamic agent-based methods replace static, rules-based systems
Ensured delivery of contextually relevant durable goods and pharmaceuticals, direct to consumer or via locker system
Smart contract-based automation of process workflows
In the healthcare sector, protecting patient data and reducing blatant inefficiency are paramount, which is why we chose to use blockchain technologies. Blockchain is fundamental to the next computing cycle and will introduce new dimensions of compute power, speed, and security.
