Healthcare Data Sharing Is Broken, PatientDirected Is Here To Fix It

*PatientDIrected IOS native app [alpha build, final product may vary]

Invest In PatientDirected

Imagine a world where precious healthcare data is liberated from the many private data silos and placed in a secure distributed data network. A network where frictionless data exchange is guaranteed, as is each patient's full control over access, utilization, and monetization of their personal health information. 


Our primary goal is to store and manage patient governance preferences for all your healthcare data.  With a simple app, patients can grant access and track usage of their healthcare data.  We then make your preferences available to those on your approved list of providers and healthcare entities. There's no need to fill in forms at each provider office.  You control who, when and where your healthcare data is used, and for how long. Furthermore you can opt in to temporarily share your de-identified healthcare data with clinical research organizations that offer to pay for its use, reducing your healthcare costs in the process.


PatientDirected is a solution that allows all parties to benefit. With a shift to distributed data we can: 

  • Improve patient outcomes 
  • Reduce healthcare costs
  • Accelerate innovations and breakthroughs within medical science

PatientDirected is solving a fundamental problem in digital health: data interoperability.

Over the past 30 years, the ability to communicate, exchange data, and access healthcare information has been a significant problem. Incomplete healthcare data leads to medical errors and sub-optimal outcomes that translate into higher insurance costs for the consumer. Large corporate healthcare stakeholders have been reluctant / resistant to solving this problem as it minimizes their competitive advantage, and patients have had no way to directly impact this important barrier to efficient healthcare*. 


Enter PatientDirected. We believe it's become clear that a consumer-driven solution to healthcare data is not only required, but essential. The simple fact is that patient directed requests for healthcare information simplify the current complex process of indirect provider-directed requests for patient information. This new automated and simple process creates a complete audit trail and a new level of transparency for the patient and the provider.  All parties are assured the request is legitimate and tracked through its lifecycle. Furthermore, as healthcare data becomes even more valuable, we allow patients to opt in to de-identified, paid access to their data for research purposes.  Our platform tracks usage and payment such that the patient has full visibility and immediate payment via our mobile app. We'll improve patient outcomes while lowering costs. 


Let's fix healthcare. Join us.

Development Stage


We are hard at work building our MVP product, and are currently still in product development stage. We have completed an alpha version of the app and back-end services as our functional proof of concept that leverages the Ethereum blockchain, IPFS and native iOS. Our goal is to aim for a Q4 2018 beta release date for our MVP, and funding will be used towards the extension and refactoring of our alpha version and the completion of the MVP.   


The Offering

Investment: Non-Voting Common Stock designated as "PDEQ Tokens" and PTDIR Tokens


$1.50/share of Non-Voting Common Stock designated as "PDEQ Tokens

When you invest you are betting the company’s future value will exceed $7.6M.


Perks*

For every $0.15 invested, the Offering includes 1 PTDIR Token


*All perks offers are mutually exclusive. All perks and tokens will be delivered after the campaign is completed, and upon availability of the Tokens.  
See Offering Summary below for additional terms.

For details on the bonus, please see the Offering Summary below.


PDEQ Token

Description:  PDEQ Token will represent a single share of Non-Voting Common Stock, with rights and preferences as designated in the Articles of Incorporation and summarized in the Offering Document, and will be issued on the ERC-20 Blockchain.  


Following a 12-month holding period, your PDEQ tokens may become eligible for trading on nSEC approved alternate trading platforms as they become available, through companies like StartEngine and tZERO. There is no guarantee that such a trading platform will be available at that time.  PDEQ tokens are not used to activate or enable transactions on the PatientDIrected.io network; they function as a form of tokenized equity and ownership in PatientDirected Inc.


PTDIR Tokens

Description: Once minted, PTDIR tokens are used as the utility and access token to enable data requests and other transactions on the PatientDIrected.io network.  As such, requesting entities and stakeholders use PTDIR tokens to activate transactions on PatientDirected via smart contract. PatientDIrected will initialy air drop these tokens to stakeholders, to enable their activity on the network.


The right to PTDIR tokens is contingent upon the successful development of such Tokens and to the extent applicable, the blockchain upon which they function. There is no guarantee that successful development will ever occur.

The Bright Future Of Health Data Sharing Starts With PatientDirected  

As we move toward a patient-centric model of healthcare, we'll need several fundamental infrastructure changes to take place. Without the unfettered exchange of patient medical records between systems and providers, health care costs rise, valuable time is lost, billions of tax payer dollars are spent, and a number of patients are subjected to medical errors and poor care coordination. (Source)


Past and present efforts to solve the problem of interoperability have been unsuccessful for several reasons. We believe one is because stakeholders are incentivized to resist change. They control and store the centralized data, and the current regulatory environment has not been a significant catalyst for improvement.  Furthermore, current industry- and government-proposed solutions are not centered around the patient, nor do they achieve the benefits we're looking for from an open distributed network like PatientDirected.  


Patient control, trust and universal access is ensured by a secure distributed system. PatientDirected plans to leverage the blockchain and distributed information technology to accomplish its goals.

Here's How We'll Do It 

We're proposing a network where frictionless data exchange is guaranteed, as is each patient's full control over access, utilization and monetization of their personal health information.

  • We'll create a blockchain and IPFS based platform known as PatientDirected.io, that acts as a distributed ledger and secure distributed data store for patient data sharing preferences and agreements.
  • On this platform, patients can share their personalized healthcare data perferences, as well as make requests for their data to be shared between specific parties. Our public API will allow appropriate and approved parties to access information to assist in the transfer of medical information as directed by the patient.  Transfers will be tracked and an immutable audit trail will exist documenting the approved transaction.   
  • Transactions related to de-identified paid information sharing as directed by the patient to clincial research organizations will be effected via smart contracts.  This ensures a transparent ledger to allow for market driven pricing, which benefits all parties.  It also allow for transparent and efficient payment mechanism to the patient in PDEQ tokens, which are converted to cash immediately unless patients opt-in to store their recieved value as PDEQ crypto tokens.

Once We Decentralize Healthcare Data, the Patient is in Control. 

  • Our plan is for patients to be granted complete and personalized governance of their personal medical information.
  • They'll be given an ability to ensure their accurate and timely medical data is available to any provider at any time to further their care, and set guidelines to allow their data to be used to advance the state of medicine and innovation through aggregate analysis and advanced data science research.
  • We believe our solution can reduce the cost of health care system wide through efficient data exchange, and reduce personal health care costs through the monetization of personal data via stakeholders that request access, including pharmaceutical, insurance, biotech, medical device and clinical research organizations.

*PatientDIrected IOS native app [alpha build, final product may vary]


Our app is designed to simplify hierarchical policies and preferences by group and by data type, down to individual entities.  State specific rights and rules are built-in to reduce complexity for all involved.  Opt-in consent and specific authorizations allow patients to manage and communicate a complete set of privacy options.  


The PatientDirected.io platform is designed to store and communicate personalized HIPAA /healthcare data govenance settings with the healthcare ecosystem.  Patients can use the app to direct data exchange with various stakeholders.

Patient Directed

Leverage HIPAA law to rapidly transfer patient data from silos into a distributed model, under the control and governance of the consumer. Facilitate exchange and monetization of this precious information to reduce consumer and systemic healthcare costs

Distributed

Blockchain and Inter-Planetary File System (IPFS) distributed design planned. Inherent smart contracts to track information exchange and associated monetary transactions.

Secure

Layered security that segments, encrypts and distributes health data. Electronically verified identities use multi-sig and multi-factor access to control and to protect accounts.

What Needs To Change

We believe that by empowering the patient through this solution, we'll see real change rapidly, and with significant long-term benefits for the patient, the healthcare system, and medical science.


But, consumers will not be the only ones who benefit. It is our belief that healthcare providers will also see a positive change. They'll be able to receive immediate and complete information at their fingertips. Healthcare IT vendors will be able to build upon a rich data set of clinical information and provide new insights and clinical guidance based on big-data analytics. The PatientDirected.io platform does not contend to displace or supplant the legacy vendor footprint or solution; rather it reinforces its value and sustainability.


Why Blockchain and Distributed Data?

These technologies provide:


  • An immutable secure, community-controlled data store which is
    critical to gain trust, and prevent the problems we see today via stakeholder data hoarding.
  • An appropriate environment for the transactional nature of data sharing and the need for transparency to drive fair market pricing 
  • The use of a dedicated utility/security token by network members to enable transactions via smart contracts and exchange monetary value with low transaction costs.

Patient Directed Is Unlike Anything That's Come Before It 

PatientDirected intends to disrupt the status quo and shift the balance of healthcare power to the patient.

  • By offering consumers an opportunity to drive the transformation of healthcare for the better, the collective effect has the potential for significant improvment.
  • Our goals is to increase transparency and consumer control of healthcare data use to encourage adoption and it our hope that this mass action will lead to the desired industry transformation.
  • Despite the historic resistance of many stakeholders to interoperability, PatientDirected.io is designed to provide long-term economic benefits to resistant stakeholders.*
  • The benefits related to accurate and complete medical data has been shown to reduced waste, improve efficiencies, and ultimately improve patient outcomes, which is a key financial objective under value based care. **
