[INTRODUCTION] NEAR Health Guild

Introducing NEAR Health

NEAR Health is built in the rapidly growing Healthtech ecosystem, it aims to utilize NEAR’s technology for healthcare.
NEAR Health is bringing the Near Protocol’s scalable blockchain technology to healthcare to enable community driven innovations that benefits people around the world.
This is a community of individuals equipped with the tools to build decentralized applications, utilize NFTs and explore the open web to solve real life healthcare problems using the infrastructures in the #NearProtocol ecosystem and beyond.

Guild Name: NEAR Health

Guild Leaders: @Mohaa @jabaalXdrag

Sputnik DAO: Soon™

Mission

Most of the blockchain use cases applied in healthcare industries uses the Ethereum blockchain, these applications spans from Securing, ease of access and sharing of patient data, professional communication, supply chain, drug traceability monitoring and tracking origins of diseases and outbreaks to creating a marketplace to buy, sell and share encrypted genetic information to create a wider database.
NEAR Health aims to bring the NEAR Protocol’s user friendly, scalable, fast, and nearly gassless infrastructures to Healthcare.
In addition, NEAR Health also aims to expand the NEAR NFT space by bringing Healthcare related NFTs. Brings medical gaming into Near and VR/AR Healthcare to the metaverse. NEAR Health will also carryout healthcare public goods for the community.
NEAR Health will also be sponsoring and/or collaborating in healthtech educational programs.

Vision

Our vision is to become the pioneers and the best community enabling blockchain innovations and web 3.0 knowledge in the Healthcare industry to benefits people around the world.

About NEAR Health

The growth in healthtech space over the years has been tremendous, 95% of medical service information in Estonia is secured using blockchain.
Hundreds startup companies are building dApps for healthcare, already established healthcare companies are adopting the blockchain to improve their services, NEAR Health aims to make the world use NEAR blockchain in building a better healthcare.
A large number of countries spend a reasonable amount of their GDP on healthcare. The U.S is poised to spend 20% of its GDP on healthcare in the near future. If that stat wasn’t jarring enough, consider the industry continues to be plagued by skyrocketing hospital costs, inefficient practices and constant data breaches. These (very expensive) problems are spurring a drive for greater efficiency and innovation.
With its ability to deflate the current spending bubble, protect patient data and improve overall experience, using blockchain in healthcare may help ease the pain. The technology is already being used to do everything from securely encrypt patient data to manage the outbreak of harmful diseases. And at least one country is big on the potential of blockchain healthcare; Estonia.
Companies like Akiri, Embleema, Chronicled, Factom, Coreal Health, Nebula Genomics, Blockpharma and so much more are doing great things for healthcare with blockchain.

Imagine a telemedicine where patients consult with their doctors via video, VR, games and pay for those consultations with crypto tokens.

Now coming to NFTs, So image minting an NFT of your genetic information, researchers can buy the NFT for educational purposes, drug development, research, and so much more, but remember you still are the original owner of that information. Don’t you think this is a better way of benefitting from what made you than just having the results with you or selling them to an individual or company for a one time payment?
This is just one thing NFTs can do for healthcare, there are hundreds of other use cases.

Imagine playing game as a practice to solve a diagnostic puzzle.
Imagine been cured in the metaverse :grin:

Imagine as a medical student, you don’t have to use cadaver(dead bodies) for practicals, VR/AR medicine and the metaverse would be so cool.
The things we can do with NEAR Health are just too much to list.

NEAR Health will bring all these innovations to the NEAR ecosystem, we’ll grow a strong community of thousands that are enthusiastic about healthtech

The more details the better according to @mecsbecs @David_NEAR @jlwaugh @AnaNastya, but it’s getting bulkier

Why NEAR Health

  • Keeping our important medical data safe and secure is the most popular blockchain healthcare application at the moment, which isn’t surprising. Security is a major issue in the healthcare industry. Between 2009 and 2017, more than 176 million patient records were exposed in data breaches. The perpetrators stole credit card and banking information, as well as health and genomic testing records.

  • Blockchain’s ability to keep an incorruptible, decentralized and transparent log of all patient data makes it a technology rife for security applications. Additionally, while blockchain is transparent it is also private, concealing the identity of any individual with complex and secure codes that can protect the sensitivity of medical data. The decentralized nature of the technology also allows patients, doctors and healthcare providers to share the same information quickly and safely.

  • Miscommunication between medical professionals costs the healthcare industry a staggering $11 billion a year. The time consuming process of obtaining access to a patient’s medical records exhausts staff resources and delays patient care. Blockchain-based medical records offers a cure for these ills.
    The decentralized nature of the technology creates one ecosystem of patient data that can be quickly and efficiently referenced by doctors, hospitals, pharmacists and anyone else involved in treatment. In this way, the blockchain can lead to faster diagnoses and personalized care plans.

  • How much do we really know about our medicine? Can we be sure it hasn’t been tampered with? Is it coming from a legitimate supplier? These questions are the primary concerns of the medical supply chain, or the link between the lab and the marketplace.
    Blockchain has serious implications for pharmaceutical supply chain management, and its decentralization virtually guarantees full transparency in the shipping process. Once a ledger for a drug is created, it will mark the point of origin (ie. a laboratory). The ledger will then continue to record data every step of the way, including who handled it and where it has been, until it reaches the consumer. The process can even monitor labor costs and waste emissions.

  • The potential of genomics to improve the future of human health, once a dream, is now a scientific and financial reality. In 2001, it cost $1 billion to process a human genome. Today it costs about $1,000, and companies like 23andMe and Ancestry.com are bringing DNA tests that unlock clues to our health and past to millions of homes.
    Blockchain is a perfect fit for this growing industry as it can safely house billions of genetic data points. It’s even become a marketplace where people can sell their encrypted genetic information to create a wider database, giving scientists access to valuable data faster than ever before.

  • Blockchain applications can accurately identify severe mistakes and even dangerous ones in the medical field.

  • The Blockchain makes the entire prescription process transparent, from manufacturing to pharmacy shelves. Congestion, freight direction, and speed may all be tracked using IoMT and Blockchain

Thank you @waldmatias, appreciate the support :wave: looking forward to it

Using blockchain technology in the healthcare industry would tremendously improve patient care globally without a doubt. As the Health system continues to face several challenges, especially in patient data privacy and delivery of care. I must confess that we require disruptive technologies at this time.

Near Health looks into this vision by leveraging on Near’s Protocol scalable blockchain technology to solve these inadequacies. The Near Health Guild has a very solid Roadmap and a great team I must say that I have no doubts that we’ll have a radical change in the healthcare Industry.

Please join us in achieving this vision.

Okay, thank you very much

i can’t lie… I’ve always dreamed of going to medical school but i never did given how much it costs in time and resources to finish it. but maybe if we offered digital classes and education in the metaverse it would make medicine more accessible to all
