Hu-manity.co and Orb Health announce strategic partnership to empower patients to take ownership and control of healthcare data using blockchain and the 31st human right to classify inherent human data as legal property
Hu-manity.co, a company designed to create decentralized human rights using proprietary technology and legal innovations on blockchains, has partnered with Orb Health, a leading provider of cloud-based collaborative care solutions focused on Chronic Care Management, Behavioral Health, and more. Together, the companies will empower patients with the right to take control of their healthcare data as their property, and with the ability to qualify to receive consideration via multiple forms of currency.
Healthcare will be the first industry to adopt Hu-manity.co’s socio-economic inventions. “Petabytes of healthcare data are anonymized and sold for billions of dollars without patient awareness, control, or consideration” said Michael J. DePalma, Founder, President and COO at Hu-manity.co. Mr. DePalma asserts “while most participants in the healthcare industry own a small piece of the problem, no single organization has displayed the audacity to build an industry solution to empower patients to own their data as their property.” With the Hu-manity.co blockchain-built App “truly patient-centric organizations such as Orb Health can now take a leadership position in the healthcare industry by introducing a new socio-economic standard where patient data is classified as patient property.”
This partnership sets an unprecedented bar in patient centricity; Hu-manity.co and Orb Health are aligned by a vision to change the way patients interact with their healthcare data. By integrating Orb Health’s collaborative care solutions with Humanity.co’s proprietary technology, the patients involved will be some of the first in the world to enjoy control and ownership of their healthcare data as property.
Orb Health is an integrated suite of collaborative technology solutions and services meeting the complete needs of doctors and health systems to deliver patient care with a focus in Chronic Care Management, Behavioral Health, and other CPT code related services. The Orb Health solution combines multiple datasets such as provider interactions, patient and compliance data, and third-party medical device data. The result is a completely integrated solution for doctors and health systems creating a “single record of truth” of a patient’s healthcare history. This integrated suite of collaborative technology solutions and services enables doctors and other healthcare providers to deliver better patient engagement and improve patient health outcomes instead of relying on multiple non-integrated systems and stand-alone EMR legacy software. “Orb Health was founded to focus specifically on health outcomes for chronic care patients and behavioral health segments,” said Paul Oran, Founder and CEO at Orb Health. Mr. Oran describes Orb Health as “existing to leverage leading technology paradigms to build software that makes a difference where it matters the most – the interaction between healthcare providers and their patients.”
Hu-manity.co has developed proprietary technology that identifies existing legal corridors in privacy-centric regulations, and has designed new intelligent contracts on blockchains which individuals can use to negotiate property-centric terms of consent and authorization with corporations. Starting with healthcare data, Hu-manity.co’s global inherent Human Data Consent and Authorization Blockchain (HD-CAB) will empower individuals to manage the consent and authorization for companies currently using their inherent human datasets.
With this partnership Hu-manity.co deploys first in the healthcare industry, enabling patients to enjoy the legal characteristics of property ownership for healthcare data, such as involvement in sale, fair market value negotiations, sharing, security, and protection from theft. Healthcare data collected and stored in Orb Health’s software coupled with the new patient-managed consent and authorization on Hu-manity.co’s HD-CAB results in the unprecedented reality where healthcare data is managed transparently as legal property on a blockchain.
