My startup wants to revolutionize healthcare by giving patients autonomy over their data to control who buys it and be the main beneficiary of its revenue, AMA!
Data is the worlds most valuable resource on the international market. Information is extremely valuable. Medical data is of no exception, and big business is already selling your medical data. The current state of the medical data market is full of lucrative practices, inefficient data gathering means, and black market activity. Brokers don’t care who's buying and sensitive medical record information isn’t treated with the respect of a patients privacy. Patients are run through the mill with medical expenses and health problems to produce data which generates revenue they never see. The least big business could do is give patients some of that revenue, but they don’t. Which is why I founded a company to give patients the control of their data and develop a more efficient means of information exchange within healthcare. What my company, Unity Health Score does is allows patients to house their data with us, we then analyze it to generate a health-score which provides a lot of services for patients like insurance premium cost negotiation. While housing the data we offer a marketplace for research to request specific data with patient access for more interactive studies. Patients have total control over who buys their data being the decider in every transaction, while also being the main beneficiary of their data’s sales. Their doctors and insurance company’s get a small cut of the revenue for help in producing the data, Unity Health Score uses this relationship to levy insurance companies for premium reductions with the health-score. You sell your medical data, you own your health, and you finally get some negotiating space in your care costs.
