Founded by executives from MD Revolution and Nucleus Health, San Diego-based MintHealth has launched a personal health record built using blockchain technology.
MintHealth is led by CEO Samir Damani and President Vishal Verma. Damani is also the founder of MD Revolution, a which focuses on chronic care management, and Verma serves as CEO of Nucleus Health, a medical imaging company that utilizes blockchain.
During an interview at the Connected Health Conference, Damani said MintHealth combines the knowledge of both organizations. It seeks to improve outcomes for patients while also making use of blockchain technology, through which it can break down data silos.
“It’s no wonder we haven’t reached the promise of predictive personalized medicine, because even though the data’s out there, it’s not put in one format,” Damani said.
Its use of blockchain also empowers patients to take control of their own health data.
