MintHealth Announces Vidamints (VIDA) to Align Stakeholders in a New Healthcare Ecosystem

Looking for a new offering that’s in mint condition? Look no further.

MintHealth, we’re told, is now offering a global decentralized health platform with a portable, secure, and self-sovereign personal health record (PHR) built on blockchain technology and designed to drive healthy patient behavior through the Vidamint token.

This week, MintHealth announced the immediate availability of the associated white paper behind a planned Vidamint (VIDA) token sale in Q1 of 2018. The company also announces the addition of Wyche “Tee” Green, III, founder and director of Greenway Health, to the MintHealth Board of Directors.

Started by a team of veterans in the healthcare industry, MintHealth is tackling two fundamental problems in healthcare today – the lack of a patient-controlled health record that can be seamlessly shared with key stakeholders, and an incentive model to promote proactive patient behaviors for the purpose of combatting the incessant global rise in chronic disease related healthcare costs.

In short, MintHealth’s patient-controlled health record includes key laboratory, medication, diagnosis, care plan, complex medical imaging (e.g., CT, MRI, x-rays, echocardiograms, ultrasounds, etc.), patient generated behavior data, and key vital signs generated outside of the clinic including weight, blood pressure, sleep, stress levels, glucose, and more.

“We have seen repeatedly that financial incentives for patients and doctors drive better outcomes and sustained patient engagement. It’s time now to combine this concept with a platform that can execute both the incentive model and the self-sovereign health record. We’re bringing together more than 100 years of domain expertise, existing intellectual property, and trade secrets to make the promise of personalized health a reality,” said Dr. Samir Damani, MD, PharmD, FACC, co-founder and CEO of MintHealth.
