Bowhead Health Personalized Health Platform
Bowhead Health is another successful ICO launches that focus on health care platform that aims to bring healthcare services and technology using cost effective method by using the blockchain technology. They started their ICO crowdsale last july 17, 2017 and majority of ICO tokens available for sale are sold.
The world’s healthcare is broken and needs to be fixed. Per the World Bank, global spending on health is expected to increase to $18.28 trillion. Despite this, many people are still not healthy or happy.
Many developing nations do not even have the most basic of healthcare services and technology. Generic drugs, which are cost effective, do not reach people who need them most. However, times are changing. Leaps are being made in digital health technology and prevention, and generally speaking, human lifespan is increasing. Remote at-home testing and diagnostic devices are seeing rapid advances and will revolutionize convenient and accessible healthcare at home.
We believe that lack of access to convenient personal healthcare services is a barrier to humans around the world, keeping them from having longer, healthier and happier lives.
Beyond these challenges are opportunities. We are in a stage where large incumbent healthcare, technology and pharmaceutical companies are vying to compete to control patients’ data in a centralized system for their own benefit. Naturally, this reduces the portability of data for patients and further embeds the incumbents and their grip on a patients’ data. The future requires a decentralized Blockchain-based repository controlled by the patient to ensure maximum security and portability. Blockchain is a perfectly suited transparent system where patients can use Bowhead Tokens to pay for healthcare practitioners, medicine, and nutritional supplements. Patients will also receive Bowhead tokens for participating in healthier activities to incentivize preventive health.
Bowhead believes personalized and secure healthcare is possible for everyone.
They already develop prototypes of their flagship products that will enable clients/patients to get health care advice and get diagnostic results from their illness from license doctors without leaving the comfort of their homeusing their products and their own blockchain technology.
