healthbank aims to revolutionize the way that we exchange, monetize, and store personal healthcare data. This health data exchange platform connects stakeholders within the health ecosystem upon the request of the user, or patient. When the user chooses to, healthbank additionally processes and exchanges data.
The team behind healthbank recognizes that in today’s world, healthcare data are incredibly complex without the patient (the end user) usually seeing it. Data are currently stored in various closed ecosystems and tend to sit dormant. It is also incredibly challenging at the moment to exchange personal healthcare data, meaning it is rare for patients or their care providers to have a full record.
healthbank will overcome these issues by taking advantage of the shift to health consumerism and how this change drives the way care is accessed and delivered. Patients have more choices and data available to them than before. With the healthbank ecosystem, users can securely store and exchange data with wellness, lifestyle, healthcare, and pharmaceutical service providers.
What Are the Key Parts of Healthbank?
There are two organizations within healthbank, and they have a symbiotic relationship. The core solution is healthbank cooperative, where patient data are stored on a fully secure digital platform that patients (members) govern. healthbank innovation AG is the platform manager that is responsible for developing services, integration of partners, applications, and data processing, all on behalf of users. healthbank cooperative is people-owned, while healthbank innovation AG is compliant. Neutral user consent connects these organizations.
Advantages of healthbank
healthbank offers users a list of advantages, including the fact that its coin is not simple. Instead, the coin is a healthbank cooperative equity that works as a security token and asset. The funding goes toward a proven business model.
healthbank already created a market-proven and operational healthcare ecosystem that is live and tokenized. In fact, there are already more than 200,000 live users. The fact that the healthbank funding is for a proven model gives it a strong advantage over other similar projects, which still require further development.
Additionally, users and investors should appreciate the fact that the team behind healthbank is made up of experienced healthcare practitioners, as well as regulatory experts and technologists. This team already has a track record of successfully scaling digital health solutions.
HBE healthbank Tokens
HBE, the token behind healthbank, is an ERC-20 token. The equity token represents a share of the healthbank cooperative. There is a maximum supply of 4 billion HBE, with 2.2 billion for sale. This includes 5 percent of the total tokens for the private sale, 3 percent for the member sale, 17 percent for the pre-ICO, and 30 percent for the STO. Fifteen percent is reserved as an early user onboarding incentive, 5 percent for the STO fees, 5 percent for the team, and 20 percent for the market cap. Those who hold the HBE token will receive dividend rights and a long-term increase in the value of the token.
The HBC token is internal, meaning that it is only used within the healthbank platform. Within the platform, the token serves several functions. It can be redeemed for health services. Users can receive the token for health data or services exchanged by the individual users. It is also possible to exchange the HBC tokens for HBE tokens at a 1:1 ratio. The HBC token is designed to provide an incentive for stakeholders in the ecosystem to develop services and exchange healthcare data on the platform.
STO Token Sale Details
