Hu-manity.co, a company designed to create decentralized human rights using proprietary technology and legal innovations on blockchains, has partnered with Orb Health, a leading provider of cloud-based collaborative care solutions focused on Chronic Care Management, Behavioral Health, and more. Together, the companies will empower patients with the right to take control of their healthcare data as their property, and with the ability to qualify to receive consideration via multiple forms of currency.
Hu-manity.co believes the healthcare industry will be the first to adopt its socio-economic inventions. "Petabytes of healthcare data are anonymized and sold for billions of dollars without patient awareness, control, or consideration” said Michael J. DePalma, Founder, President and COO at Hu-manity.co. Mr. DePalma asserts “while most participants in the healthcare industry own a small piece of the problem, no single organization has displayed the audacity to build an industry solution to empower patients to own their data as their property.” With the Hu-manity.co blockchain-built App “truly patient-centric organizations such as Orb Health can now take a leadership position in the healthcare industry by introducing a new socio-economic standard where patient data is classified as patient property.”
By integrating Orb Health’s collaborative care solutions with Humanity.co’s proprietary technology, the patients involved will be some of the first in the world to enjoy control and ownership of their healthcare data as property.
Hu-manity.co has developed proprietary technology that identifies existing legal corridors in privacy-centric regulations, and has designed new intelligent contracts on blockchains which individuals can use to negotiate property-centric terms of consent and authorization with corporations. Starting with healthcare data, Hu-manity.co’s global inherent Human Data Consent and Authorization Blockchain (HD-CAB) will empower individuals to manage the consent and authorization for companies currently using their inherent human datasets.
Orb Health is an integrated suite of collaborative technology solutions and services meeting the complete needs of doctors and health systems to deliver patient care with a focus in Chronic Care Management, Behavioral Health, and other CPT code related services. The Orb Health solution combines multiple datasets such as provider interactions, patient and compliance data, and third-party medical device data. The result is a completely integrated solution for doctors and health systems creating a “single record of truth” of a patient’s healthcare history. This integrated suite of collaborative technology solutions and services enables doctors and other healthcare providers to deliver better patient engagement and improve patient health outcomes instead of relying on multiple non-integrated systems and stand-alone EMR legacy software. “Orb Health was founded to focus specifically on health outcomes for chronic care patients and behavioral health segments,” said Paul Oran, Founder and CEO at Orb Health. Mr. Oran describes Orb Health as “existing to leverage leading technology paradigms to build software that makes a difference where it matters the most - the interaction between healthcare providers and their patients.”
