How it Works

MedCredits harnesses the power of a P2P network, the blockchain and smart phones to connect patients and doctors worldwide on a decentralized network. By decentralizing medicine, MedCredits is able to create a free-market system providing more affordable and efficient healthcare than currently available. Based on the framework of the OpenBazaar codebase, the first software release Hippocrates is a user-friendly app on the MedCredits platform connecting patients to dermatologists for fast diagnoses at a fraction of the cost.

Telemedicine on the blockchain

MedCredits is the first decentralized healthcare network built from the Openbazaar protocol. Openbazaar is an advanced P2P network that allows for a trustless exchange of goods between parties eliminating the need for central control and middlemen.

Faster diagnoses

MedCredits provides patients access to a global network of doctors. This borderless network connects time zones all over the world allowing patients to receive near instant diagnoses at anytime.

User-friendly app

With MedCredits' simple interactive mobile app, Hippocrates, patients can easily submit cases and receive diagnoses with the touch of a few buttons and a photo. How healthcare should be.

Healthcare from anywhere

Telemedicine is expected to become a $200 billion market within 10 years. With blockchain based telemedicine, MedCredits gives patients access to healthcare from the comfort of their homes with no wait times.

Affordable healthcare

By connecting physicians and patients on a decentralized global network, MedCredits creates an efficient, free healthcare market with no middlemen. Thus reducing unnecessary healthcare costs associated with traditional office visits.

Universal medical records

MedCredits creates an electronic medical record (EMR) system allowing doctors to better co-manage patients on an interconnected network. All the while, still giving patients control of the private keys to their own health records.

Project Timeline

The date of the token sale launch will be announced in September 2017 with a target of raising the equivalent of 30 million USD in Bitcoin, Ether and Waves. A total of 100,000,000 MedCredits tokens (MEDX) will be generated between the Ethereum and Waves platforms.
The token sale will end after 1-2 months or sooner if the target of 30 million USD is raised prior to the deadline.
The pre-alpha phase of development will consist of modifying the OpenBazaar codebase to establish a stable desktop platform to serve as a customized healthcare network.
The alpha release will be designed to test the network, mobile app, and desktop version for usability and functionality. Access to the alpha version will be by invitation only, and rolled out to token sale participants. Once the majority of bugs are fixed, we will then launch the alpha version of the software on the main network.
The MedCredits mobile and desktop platforms will be open to the general public for use in teledermatology. In order to incentivize both patients and physicians to use the platform during this trial period, the first 6 months or 1000 cases will be free for patient use. Physician compensation will come from the MedCredits marketing funds.
All bugs fixed, and Hippocrates app no longer in beta. Begin marketing campaign to attract both patients and doctors to platform.
Once a functioning dermatology app and desktop version is complete, we will expand MedCredits’ services to other medical specialties, beginning with psychology and “Ask a Doctor” feature. HIPAA-compliant video capabilities will also be added to the platform for services requiring live video encounters.
Platform stability and bug fixing on test net.
Release of Galen onto the mainnet. Fix any remaining bugs.
Stable release of Galen app and successful upgrade of the MedCredits platform. Begin marketing campaign in added medical specialties and general medicine.
Platform upgrade to include the following new features: patient charts, appointment scheduling, notifications of upcoming appointments and physician referral. The platform will now serve as both an EMR and health services platform, all in one location.
