In today’s world, data is everywhere. Our every move, search, message, and purchase, online and off, is tracked to make customized experiences easier to render whether on the go or at home. We’re used to being able to access information, products, and services with the tap of a button.

For all of the data we generate through purchases, mapping, mass transit, and other means, the volume of health data worldwide is expected to surpass the growth of big data overall: surging at a rate of 48% per year to 2.3 exabytes (2.3 billion gigabytes) by 2020. Aging populations and globalization have set the healthcare industry on an unsustainable trajectory, in the United States and around the world. In the race to provide accessible care at an affordable cost with high quality, healthcare companies new and old alike are heavily dependent on data that can be shared and accessed as easily as our shipping preferences.

And yet, so much about the healthcare space remains opaque and inaccessible: costs and billing procedures are murky at best, data sharing is heavily regulated, but not monitored, and incentive structures between insurers, providers, manufacturers, and pharmaceuticals are misaligned with needs and wants of patients.

Web3 is uniquely positioned to reinvent how healthcare works from the ground up. Blockchain technology can offer more clarity into and accountability for rising costs, more transparency into motivations and actions of different actors in the space. Furthermore, it stands to provide patients with self-sovereign ownership of the most personal and impactful data they’ll ever create.

We are looking for entrepreneurs and builders to design new protocols and financial instruments that support the long-term, global health and wellness of patients, insurers, and medical providers. We leave it to you to design the bold new systems of the future, and offer the following provocations as a place to get started:

  • How might we humanize healthcare through incentivization?

    • Examples: Reimagine medical situations as positive things to know (i.e. someone caring for their mental health by seeing a therapist) instead of something to be hidden from others, structure medical costs to incentivize “down payments” in health without compromising data capture.
  • How might we shed light on healthcare costs, capabilities, and offerings through radical transparency?

    • Examples: Helping individual policyholders to evaluate different doctors, surgeons, and hospitals through transparent pricing and clear reputation systems, providing a clear picture of plans in action so policyholders can choose plans that fit their needs, eliminating or reimagining altogether the relationship between patient, healthcare provider, and insurer.
  • How might we promote self-sovereignty of the truest nature of identity: health data?

    • Examples: Ability to understand and control (including revocation of data) the use of sensitive data in medical studies (DNA, etc), develop a true health reputation for patients, medical providers, and insurers.

Work has been started.

These users each claimed they can complete the work by 2 days, 22 hours from now.
Please review their action plans below:

1) sirsuhayb has started work.

As a designer + entrepreneur, I will be delivering the following:

Product
> A product based on the premise of making healthcare desirable and transparent based on my previous work within the healthcare space: https://medium.com/portfolio-of-ameer-suhayb-carter/healthcare-framework-ff1fd1b9f210

> Discovery Efforts: Interviews, competitive analysis, product positioning and methods to leverage blockchain in a meaningful way.

> Product wireframes and high fidelity mockups

Potential:
> A pitch deck explaining the current problem being addressed in the healthcare space, and why this product is the answer to that problem

> Artifacts in the form of a potential product roadmap if this were to be adopted, and potential stack to be used to build and deploy the product

> Potential team forecast

///

Because I am a designer, I will not have a built mvp, but a design prototype will be delivered instead.
I am open to having assistance to build a prototype in code if someone decides to collaborate.
2) tgmasilo has started work.

The first step to be taken to develop peer-to-peer medical aid scheme on Ethereum platform is to assemble a team of four. The team shall consist of Ethereum developer (myself), Graphic designer, front-end developer and and external consultant currently involved with medical aid schemes administrators and/or brokers. This shall be allocated 1 day.

The next step shall be to ensure that the team understands the problem the project is trying to solve. The consultant shall provide a view on how current schemes work to the team and the Ethereum developer shall table the proposed solution. This should take 2 hour. After this the team shall have 14 days to iteratively develop the smart contract(s) and the UI/UX interface. The next 10 days shall be of testing and fine tuning the system.
3) moranthomas has started work.

Description of the Project

According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association (AARDA)  some 50 million Americans suffer from one.
Autoimmunity is now one of the most common disease categories, ahead of cancer and heart disease.
Autoimmune diseases are being diagnosed with such frequency that some medical experts are calling it an epidemic.

This will be a blockchain based tool to help physicians and academic researchers to gain insights into chronic inflammatory and immune conditions to calculate precisely just how much autoimmune disease has risen and where. Unlike cancer, autoimmune diseases do not need to be reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which means there’s no database to help researchers understand how many people are affected, where cases are occurring, and how quickly incidences of certain diseases are rising — all key data points for scientists trying to understand what’s happening.

The basic principle is that it will be an Ethereum-based public ledger storing hashes to encrypted metadata stored on IPFS. This data contain information input by physicians and immunologists of patient visits including their diagnoses and symptoms associated with those chronic inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.

The patient data can be stored anonymously with only generic identifiable info such as age, gender, ethnicity to avoid privacy concerns. Since they own the data, the patient can be given read-only access to the record using a blockchain based self-sovereign identity solution such as uPort.

The goal is to have a single store for all the data so that medical practitioners and research scientists all across the globe can gain insights and visibility into the inter-relationships connecting these similar illnesses together.
4) edsonayllon has started work.

For this hackathon:

  1. Research healthcare and Web3 use cases
  2. Formulate project idea
  3. Iterate wireframes
  4. Build Minimal Viable Product
  5. Write Github introductory marketing for the product
    5) nance2uiuc has started work.

I will make a submission that demonstrates Ethereum's power to return sovereignty of biometric data to the user through use of a decentralized app.
6) craze3 has started work.

I am building a decentralized database of healthcare costs from across the world. These prices will be specified per procedure (heart transplant, cavity filling, etc...) and per country of residence. The average cost for each procedure will be shown an interactive map UI. The goal of this project is increase healthcare cost transparency on an international scale. My advisor loves the ideas so far, and I'm excited to show you guys what I got!

@SirSuhayb @tgmasilo are you both still working here? Mind popping into the Discord and saying hello? We can make you team channels and you can interact with the ConsenSys Labs team there 🙂

The gitcoin page for the project says submission deadline is in 14 days, however, gitcoin also says this hackathon runs until the 10th. Which submission deadline is correct? I assume it'll be the 10th.
