What makes Health Nexus work?

Health Nexus is truly decentralized:
Open source, free to build on and governed by a consortium.

Open Source

Health Nexus developer tools are open source and free, allowing community members to build and deploy distributed apps. Developers can create solutions for any part of healthcare: patients, pharmacies, healthcare providers, insurers, or clinical researchers.

Token: Health Cash

Since Health Nexus is a new blockchain, every transaction requires Health Cash, or HLTH, in the same way that Ethereum requires ETH. HLTH opens new opportunities for revenue, not only for providers, but also for patients.

Healthcare-Grade Security

Governance and validation protocols ensure that only HIPAA-compliant servers are allowed in the ecosystem. HIPAA compliance is a recognized healthcare standard that assures safe adoption of the platform.

Distributed Protocol

Health Nexus features a distributed protocol with a built-in key-pair system. It allows users to share their data securely with healthcare providers. Audited smart contracts automatically update providers, ensuring that all involved physicians are informed of the latest diagnoses and treatments.

How Does It All Connect?

Healthcare application providers enter commercial agreements with healthcare providers and patients.

Healthcare application providers build services on Health Nexus.

The healthcare industry uses those applications to access and share data.

Health cases are used to fuel every transaction on Health Nexus.

Health Cash

Health cash is the transactional cryptocurrency of the Health Nexus blockchain. Like Ethereum has ether, Health Nexus has health cash. Health Cash is abbreviated as HLTH.

The HLTH token gives immediate access to the Health Nexus key/pair system, which lets token holders use HLTH to purchase data-access keys from compatible data providers.

It can also be voluntarily exchanged for health cash on Health Nexus once commercially released.
