Digitize your health
eHealth First is a decentralized, blockchain-based platform for personalized health and longevity management. Implementing artificial intelligence, machine learning, and natural language processing, the platform promises to provide health advice to users and facilitate the diagnosis process for physicians.
In essence, eHealth First is a decentralized database. Medical professionals have already been digitally storing crucial information—from patient records to the latest medical research—for years, but storing this information on the blockchain provides more security and accessibility. eHealth First takes the existing medical information and maximizes its potential.
Using such technologies as artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and machine learning, the platform will enable users to efficiently search the database to find diagnoses or potential treatments. Though the database is massive, as the information available on medicine is almost boundless, produced by medical researchers and experienced physicians alike, the use of AI technologies will ensure an efficient and accurate search process.
Natural language processing is an interdisciplinary field merging computer science with linguistics, and its integration is paramount to the effective execution of a database of this scale. Using advanced natural language processing algorithms, eHealth First will be able to efficiently comb through expansive bodies of text to locate the relevant information. The software’s artificial intelligence will enable it to make informed decisions, and through machine learning, it will continuously improve its capabilities, always learning from its mistakes.
Furthermore, when examining medical research, the platform will employ the concepts of biostatistics and clinical epidemiology to help determine the accuracy and validity of the obtained findings. In short, eHealth First is, by a long shot, the most advanced medical database the world has seen to date.
Benefits for users
Even if you don’t work in the healthcare sector, you’ve benefited from its services. Health care is an essential service that we all use, and thus, everyone stands to benefit from eHealth First. The platforms benefits, however, extend beyond users to healthcare professionals, including healthcare providers, researchers, and software developers.
Patients and healthy people alike can use the EHF platform to store personal information (and share it with appropriate persons), monitor their health, and obtain a “second opinion” on a diagnosis or treatment plan, among further uses. eHealth First can assist not only with combatting a contracted disease or dealing with an existing condition but also with prevention, helping healthy people remain healthy.
Benefits for healthcare providers
The EHF platform can also serve as a major aid for healthcare providers. Doctors can use the app or website to, among other uses, obtain accurate, up-to-date health information on patients, check the latest clinical recommendations regarding a particular treatment or medication, and to communicate with patients regarding their health concerns or treatment plans. Essentially, it allows healthcare providers to offer elevated services more efficiently.
Benefits for researchers
Additionally, researchers, both public and commercial, can make use of the platform to carry out population studies on or obtain statistical information about the impersonal data of users who have explicitly consented to their data being used for study purposes. In the case of commercial researchers, EHF moreover offers a platform to disseminate service and product information.
Benefits for developers
Finally, eHealth First constitutes an opportunity for software developers to develop, publish, distribute, and sell health-related applications on the EHF marketplace. Since these applications will mostly be created for the patient, health-conscious individual, or healthcare provider, these parties also stand to benefit from developers’ work.
Utility of the ETF token
eHealth First employs an internal token for use on the platform. Users can spend their tokens to purchase services or apps—and if they purchase services developed under the EFH project or by project partners, they can even receive a discount up to 50%. Tokens can also be used to partake in special health campaigns or programs.
In addition to purchasing goods and services, tokens can be used to leverage voting power—users can vote on platform developments relative to the number of tokens they hold. And to improve matters even further, holders can invest, in case the token price grows, exchange them for other cryptocurrencies or fiat currencies, or sell or buy them directly via compatible crypto wallets—meaning their utility is vast.
Additionally, potential investors should note that, to avoid risk, if the soft cap is not reached, EHF will reimburse investors for all invested ETH (except for gas).
