On July 14, 2022, DeHealth’s co-founders, Anna Bondarenko and Denys Tsvaig, held a vibrant AMA session for Satoshi Club members. Here’s a glimpse of the most thrilling questions’ answers that helped the community better understand DeHealth’s mission, roadmap, and mind-blowing plans. In addition, you can also find all the answers in our White Paper.

Can you give us more information about each of the actors of DeHealth Ecosystem regarding their functions within it?

Denys: First, let’s understand the terms. DeHealth is a brand and international association of companies with HQ in the UK and research centers in Israel, the US, New Zealand, and Ukraine. The company has developed a DeHealth App — AI & Medical Data — Based Mobile App. This decentralized application (dApp) allows users to securely and autonomously store their medical data in one place. Users can share, manage, and monetize their data directly on the dApp. Transactions within the DApp will be completed using our DHLT token, supporting their health while selling their anonymized data.

The DHLT Network is a decentralized storage for health data and digital assets, data oracles protocol, and incentive layer. The job of the DHLT protocol is to digitalize and secure global health data for everyone. DHLT Network makes health data profitable and lifesaving with the worldwide Web 3.0 ecosystem.

Suppose you are looking into web 3.0 innovation. In that case, we believe we could surprise you with DeHealth — decentralized storage for health data and digital assets, data Oracles protocol, incentive layer, and metaverse for healthcare.

Anna: And now let’s talk about the Ecosystem actors — Users, Suppliers, and Consumers.

A user is any person on the Earth who can interact with gadgets and DApps. To use DeHealth App, they should pass an identification on the DApp using MetaMask. The next step is uploading personal details and medical data to the DApp, manually or via Data Supplier synchronization. The User is recognized in the system as the sole owner of the data they upload, and their data is attached to the user via Medical ID — or as we call it, DeHealth ID. Users may store, share, and sell their depersonalized information on the DHLT Network. Users may receive rewards in the form of DHLT tokens in return for entering their data and completing other tasks. Furthermore, these tokens may be used to invest, transact, and exchange for other currencies.

The buyer is a legal entity that registers on dApp. Buyers are not limited to labs, pharmaceutical enterprises, universities, institutions, centralized medical data exchanges, etc. Once the buyer clears the KYC, they will have access to the pools of patients’ DEPERSONALIZED records, data filtration functionality, and the ability to request specific data. The buyer can buy, access, and work with data.

Data Supplier is also a legal entity — institution, clinic, lab, medical information system, etc., that supplies large sets of medical data to the DeHealth Network. The data Supplier acts as a first level of validation of the medical data since they are the only trusted medical services providers. Blocks of data would be integrated into the DHLT Network through API back-end integration and onboarding of the Supplier. Integration ensures that the data is updated, verified, and recorded in real-time, making sure that the data recorded is actionable.

It’s important to note that patients’ data can only be uploaded to the Network with the user’s permission or by the User himself.

How is DeHealth beneficial to each category of Ecosystem actors?

Denys: Our DHLT token participates in the maintenance of the internal system; that is, you can sell your data on our platform and receive tokens for it. Hospitals and medical workers participate in data verification. That is, a token is not a coin to pay for medical services.

DHLT token will serve two primary functions — payment for transactions and payment to access medical data.

Clients — probably someone who is currently suffering or treating a similar health condition, need information about the disease, or wishes to use the data for an improved study- must have DHLT tokens to request access to the medical record stored in the DeHealth database.

Each request sent to the database automatically takes off a few DHLT tokens from the buyer to the owner of the medical data.

To earn DHLT, users should regularly fill out a health card, or DeHealth ID — a unique user identifier attached to the user and connected to the private key, and includes, among other things, the address of the user on the BSC network for complete interaction with the DeHealth Web3 infrastructure. DeHealth ID is the user’s International Medical Passport, which will act as a universal and safe place for personal medical data. Users have complete control over their data and its privacy, which allows them to see which applications record their data to DeHealth ID and which applications request access to their data. The more applications ask for access to a user’s data, the more DHLT tokens data holders receive.

The user fills out his/her profile information; the profile consists of the following three separate parts:

User incentives from the direct sale of data are made up of two parts:

  1. Personal data: age, name, address, etc.
  2. Medical data: imported from the partner Data Supplier includes patient medical history, test results, scans, etc.
  3. Lifestyle data: data input by the user or through IoT integrations. This data includes activity levels, eating habits, bad habits, etc.

Personal information remains encrypted and is never shared/seen by any stakeholder besides the user. On the other hand, medical and lifestyle data is encrypted using a private key, and as a result, the user can upload this data to the DHLT Network.

User incentives from the direct sale of data comprise two parts:

  1. It is related to the amount of profile information completed. Based on completion, a rating is assigned between 0.25–1.0. For example, a rating of 0.25 would be given to the user that filled out 25% of the profile information, whereas 1.0 represents a fully completed profile. The rating dictates the number of tokens that the user will receive. Each time data is sold from the data pool in which their medical information is revolving, the user gets a reward.
  2. It is based on the amount of DHLT tokens the user allocated into the staking contract. The more tokens are staked, the higher the reward proportion from the second income distribution.

To qualify for a share of the proceeds from the sale of medical data, the user must upload their data to the DHLT Network blockchain. The minimum profile rating which it is allowed to be uploaded to the blockchain is 0.25. Downloading a profile will cost the user 100 DHLT.

Here is how we distribute income when we help people to sell their medical data:

25% — All users who provided medical data (depending on profile rating)

25% — All users who provided medical data (depending on DHLT tokens amount in staking)

30% — DeHealth service fee

20% — Medical Data Providers (Validators )

DeHealth burns 10% of all DHLT tokens it receives as service fees.

Data consumers can send requests to buy the medical data sets they need. The regular price is 250 DHLT per record. This price may vary depending on the number of records bought. Buyers pay for the following data in the descending format:

  • Depersonalised medical data from the pool.
  • Filtered depersonalized medical data.
  • Custom depersonalized medical data set.
  • Long-term monitoring and updates on a depersonalized medical data set.
  • Depersonalised medical + Lifestyle data from the pool.
  • Filtered medical + lifestyle data.
  • Custom Depersonalised filtered medical + lifestyle data.
  • Long-term monitoring and updates on a depersonalized medical + lifestyle data set.
  • Custom request.

We are building a DHLT network so the user can constantly receive rewards for selling their depersonalized data. It’s like royalty. This is DeHealth’s know-how.

You can find more detailed diagrams and formulas about the process in our White Paper.

Can you tell us more about the security measures you have in place for storing medical data?

Denys: The economic damage in the Web 3 industry from hackers amounts to tens of billions of dollars annually. I am the president of the National Cybersecurity Association of Ukraine, and our DeHealth’s team includes, among others, information security and cybersecurity experts.

Due to the sensitive nature of data, DeHealth has developed a smart ecosystem software to ensure security, good user experience, and seamless integration for data providers. All data in the DeHealth app is encrypted and stored in a decentralized network. This architecture allows data holders to be independent and autonomous. Users can turn off access or delete data irrelevant to them, prioritizing one data source over another.

The medical industry is prone to virus attacks: DeHealth applies a multi-layered approach that focuses on preventing attacks and mitigating the effect of ransomware. The first level of security is during the input data validation. The second level encrypts the data using top-tier banking-grade encryption methods to prevent unauthorized access. Lastly, data is recorded in the DHLT Network, making it immutable and secure in the private chain.

DHLT Network utilizes a Proof of Authority consensus mechanism, and all the nodes are run internally on secure server networks. The private blockchain structure protects DHLT Network from any external threats.

Dealing with medical data, the most sensitive and valuable asset in the healthcare industry, DeHealth prioritizes the security of data storage by complying with data protection and security standards, including Data Protection Law, GDPR, HIPAA, and Data Protection Act. We also set up a long-term partnership with Hacken, a leading security consulting company focusing on blockchain security. To ensure that DeHealth is secure and increases user confidence, Hacken conducted a smart contract code review and security analysis report for DeHealth DHLT Network on April 29, 2022. Specifically, a documentation review and automatic and manual analysis. We got an 8.7 score (from a possible 10).

Can you share some links to the list of the hospitals DeHealth partnered with so we can check which is close to us? Do you plan on partnering with more hospitals?

Anna: We have a pilot project in Eastern Europe with more than 35,000 doctors, 3,200,000 patients, and 650 hospitals. This is a local sub-brand of DeHealth in Ukraine — the ASKEP SaaS platform and the Hospital OS telemedicine platform. 90% of our partner hospitals are public. We are official partners of the Ministry of Health, and more information can be found on the Ministry’s official website. As soon as a hospital becomes our partner, its patients are registered in the system. And these partnerships are the cornerstone of the DeHealth dApp.

Our following entry areas are the UK, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, USA, Canada, India, Latin America, and Africa. First, we are focused on building a system for individuals so that each person can save and monetize their depersonalized data.

This is especially important for regions with low financial indicators among the population.

We want every person in the world to have access to medicine, regardless of their social status, localization, the political situation in their country, and personal financial capabilities.

Within three months, every person in the world will be able to monetize their depersonalized date using the DeHealth App.

Let’s take some examples from real life. Let’s say I am from Ukraine and now live in Georgia. How can your project be worthwhile for me?

Anna: For example, you can request your official medical history in Ukraine using the DeHealth App — this healthcare card will always be with you, wherever you are. In our practice, medical history can save a person’s life because when some patient gets to the clinic unconscious, the doctors may provide him with a treatment that would be fatal for this patient. But with the help of medical history, doctors can find out, for example, that this particular person is allergic to a specific drug.

The second option is that you will be able to receive additional income by monetizing your depersonalized data — it is so important for refugees who have lost their jobs and homes.

Can you describe which nations the software can support? Do you also focus on underdeveloped countries?

Denys: At the first stage, we support English and Ukrainian languages with subsequent additions of others.

Anna: We want to open access for all people in the world to the best health technologies that can preserve health and prolong life. There are two global problems in the world healthcare system. The first one is the localization of the patient (when there is no access to a doctor nearby). With the help of the DeHealth app, we open the whole world of healthcare. Wherever you are — you can make an appointment with any doctor in the world and get access to the best treatment.

And the second problem, in my opinion, the most important, is that people in developing countries often do not have the opportunity to pay for medical services. Thanks to DeHealth app, each of our user-patient — will be able to monetize their depersonalized medical information and receive additional income that they can spend on themselves or their loved ones.

Do you intend to implement an ambassador program to encourage people to use it?

Denys: We have already developed a loyalty program, as well as a referral program, which also includes an ambassador program. Soon, it will be available online, and we will be glad to see everyone interested because our project is an opportunity to change the entire healthcare industry and make it more accessible! Please follow our social media and website to not miss updates!

Who are DeHealth’s partners?

Denys: Several well-known experts are involved as Advisors to speed DeHealth’s rapid development.

Ralf P.Gerteis, the Scaleswap CEO, is dedicated to empowering DeHealth with deep knowledge of blockchain and navigating the project in the most disruptive technology. Alex Philippin, an early consultant in many current top-100 projects such as Elrond or TerraFurthermore and current Head of the Samurai Launchpad and Head of BD at CyberFi, advises DeHealth on go-to-the-market strategies. Philippe Gerwill, Digitalization Humanist, Futurist, and an Innovation KOL, who spent about 30 years in global roles in big multinationals and mostly in the pharmaceutical industry, joined DeHealth’s Advisors pool as well with a purpose to help us to share some of his broader expertise in healthcare and across various countries and continents.

As DeHealth is blockchain agnostic, we plan to do cross-chain solutions with major blockchains, including Polygon, Solana, etc.

We started working with the leading universities to create a robust R&D for the digitalization of healthcare and the standardization of approaches to the safe donation of medical data.

We have partners and backers — Scaleswap, CyberFi, Hacken, Chainlink, International Chamber of Commerce, Ministry of Health, Draper University, Stratex, Cyberpolice, The Council for Inclusive Capitalism, InnMind, etc.

We are at a stage of negotiations or soft commitments with a few funds and Family offices, including Delta Fund, ISU tech, Multicoin, Polychain, CLS, and more.

Suppose you are looking into Web 3.0 innovation. In that case, we believe we could surprise you with DeHealth — decentralized storage for health data and digital assets, data Oracles protocol, incentive layer, and metaverse for healthcare. Web 3.0 Medical Data Economy!

Are you guys looking into implementing something like the ‘Move-to-earn’ approach where people run, jog and jump and earn?

Anna: Yes, you are right — everything we do aims to maintain health and prolong life. Prevention is undoubtedly the best way to preserve your health. We are developing many programs for our users that will encourage them to take care of their health — to do preventive examinations with a doctor to identify the slightest violations and instant correction; physical exercise; drinking regime, etc. We are creating the world’s first healthy crypto community!

What are your plans and the measures you’ll take to make the project sustainable and have a healthy economy?
